Cruise from one sunny tropical isle to another in the glittering turquoise seas of the Western Caribbean. A Carnival Cruise to the Western Caribbean offers idyllic days of swimming, snorkeling, and strolling pearly white sand beaches and romantic nights beneath the twinkle of clear, starry skies.
Day 1 – Meridian, Mississippi – Feel the anticipation build as we board our deluxe Shockey Tours motorcoach and travel to Meridian, Mississippi to overnight.
Day 2 – Board Cruise Ship – After an included breakfast, we continue to New Orleans, Louisiana, where we will transfer to our Carnival Cruise Ship. We’ll have the entire evening to get acquainted with our new home away from home.
Day 3 – Fun Day at Sea – This is a relaxing day at sea, where you can enjoy a day dedicated to exploring this majestic vessel. You may want to rise early to witness the amazing sunrise across the beautiful Caribbean waters or perhaps you’d rather sleep late before spending the day in your favorite way. Savor the excitement of the Promenade decks – a playground of theaters, lounges, boutiques, and restaurants. How do you define relaxation? Begin by lounging by the pool, then take an opportunity to soak in a first class Jacuzzi. If you prefer more activity, you won’t be disappointed. The ship is outfitted with a fully-equipped gym, aerobics classes, personal trainers, court sports, and jogging tracks circling the ship. When the sun sets, the action begins. Each evening is filled with the excitement of entertaining shows, Las Vegas-style revues, a lively casino, and dancing to music playing in the nightclubs and lounges throughout the ship.
Day 4 – Fun Day at Sea – Perhaps you would like to lounge poolside and work on the tan that will be the envy of your friends when you return. Or join in one of the many deck sports and game activities organized by the Social Director and his staff. There will not be any shortage of activities that cater to every taste and interest.
Day 5 – Montego Bay, Jamaica – Prepare to let your hair down and kick back to seductive reggae rhythms on your cruise to Montego Bay. Boasting some of Jamaica’s finest beaches, shopping, restaurants, and golf courses, “Mo Bay” (as it’s affectionately known) is a tropical live-wire. Shop, swim, play, and sample Jamaica’s
rich culture on optional excursions into the island’s breathtaking countryside. History lovers can experience the grandeur of old-time mansions and golfers can test their skills on a course with a Caribbean backdrop.
Day 6 – Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands – Enjoy laid-back British civility in a sun-splashed Caribbean tropical locale. Don’t let the island’s scrubland terrain fool you — a spectacular marine paradise lies just offshore, where a living undersea wall tapers off dramatically into the ocean depths. Cruises to Grand Cayman bring you directly to the best scuba diving
and snorkeling in the kaleidoscopic Cayman Islands. When you get up close and personal with the resident stingrays and turtles, you’ll soon learn why beach-goers and nature lovers rank cruises to the Grand Cayman as some of the best in the Caribbean.
Day 7 – Cozumel, Mexico – Cozumel is proof that Mexico can do ‘island flavor’ with the best of the Caribbean. It may not be the biggest island in the sea, but Cozumel offers a huge variety of things to do, see, taste, and explore. This island just happens to be perched atop a coral reef, which promises hours
of snorkeling or scuba diving fun. Cruises to Cozumel dock at the island’s heart — just minutes from San Miguel’s seafront shops and the white sand beach at Chankanaab National Park. Drift among star corals and sea fans on a Cozumel diving excursion or simply kick back on the beach beneath your own palm palapa as the turquoise waves roll in.
Day 8 – Fun Day at Sea – This will be our last day at sea before saying goodbye to this magnificent ship. Take time to enjoy the serenity, as our cruise is winding down and all too soon we’ll have to return to our busy daily lives.
Day 9 – Disembark Ship – Memphis, Tennessee – Our journey comes to a close as we cruise into New Orleans and disembark the ship. We overnight in the Memphis, Tennessee area.
