14 Night Panama Canal cruise departing roundtrip from New Orleans onboard Carnival Glory.
If you’re looking for a vacation at sea that’s as colorful as the décor of the cruise ship taking you there, an entire palette of fun activities and hot spots awaits aboard Carnival Glory. For starters, there’s a rainbow of salsa options for dressing up your tacos and burritos at BlueIguana Cantina, while Guy’s Burger Joint serves up burgers designed by the colorful personality himself: celebrity chef Guy Fieri.
Speaking of colorful personalities, you’ll enjoy a variety of stand-up comedians at The Punchliner Comedy Club. Picture yourself grabbing a drink at the open-air RedFrog Rum Bar or BlueIguana Tequila Bar… whichever color or spirit’s more your style. Represent your favorite team’s colors and enjoy a round or two at the SkyBox Sports Bar. Enjoy a show on the stage at Playlist Productions, complete with singing and dancing, plus video screens that bring these productions an extra splash of color. Speaking of splash, at WaterWorks the fun flows down the winding curves of the classic Twister and all-new AquaTunnel waterslide — plus twin racing slides and a giant tipping bucket — for countless gallons of fun. And if a picture paints a thousand words, imagine the millions flying off the big screen during a film under the stars at Dive-In Movies. Yes, it’s Hollywood meets islands for a date night done right.
We’re not just viewing this ship with rose-colored lenses, either — it’s clear that the fun, eye-catching experiences all around you are the real deal… even the fantasy world of Seuss At Sea, where your favorite books (and characters!) come to life before your eyes. And from the people-watching potential of the Lido Deck, to the see-and-be-seen White Heat Dance Club, Carnival Glory pulls out the stops. It even shows its true colors as it satisfies your stomach with sit-down dining options like the Emerald Room Steakhouse and the aptly-named Golden and Platinum Restaurants. And wait ‘till you see the Camel Club Casino — proof that Carnival Glory is a real looker and a truly special cruise ship.
Look to Carnival Glory for one vibrant time at sea.
Highlights of this cruise:
New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
A Carnival cruise from New Orleans is your chance to discover the unmistakable charm and flavor of the Crescent City. Before or after you cruise, take a little time to explore the French Quarter — romantic as ever, with restaurants serving up heaping helpings of savory Creole cuisine, and nightclubs and street musicians playing the kind of jazz that gets your toes tapping. The best part is, you can soak up some of this flavor before sailing on one of our cruises out of New Orleans. Whether you’re whooping it up on Bourbon Street, listening to the Jackson Square trumpeters, or hearing the ghosts whisper at eerie St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, spending extra time in the Big Easy is a must when cruising from New Orleans. Time your NOLA cruise right, and you can step out with the parades of Jazz Fest and Mardi Gras.
Montego Bay, Jamaica
When it comes to cruises to Jamaica, this is a port you won’t want to miss. 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. Are you ready to immerse yourself in the town’s festive energy? Carnival’s cruises to Montego Bay let you shop, swim, and play in Mo Bay to your heart’s content — and sample Jamaica’s rich culture on 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. Whatever you’re into, we’ve got everybody covered on our cruises to Montego Bay.
Aruba, Netherland Antilles
It’s hard to find a more beautiful vacation destination than the Southern Caribbean, and on our cruises to Aruba, you’re the star of that perfect snapshot. Splash and play your way across this sparkling corner of the Caribbean, or simply relax on a sun-baked beach on one of Carnival’s cruises to Aruba. The locals call it the “happy island,” and they prove it — Aruba cheerily welcomes visitors to picture-perfect strips of beach, swaths of exotic blooms, and some of the Caribbean’s top shopping and nightlife locales. Celebrate the year-round Caribbean spirit, or simply unwind to the island’s bewitching and relaxing tempo. It’s easy to find your own tropical beat when you cruise Aruba-style.
Bonaire is an island nation in the Southern Caribbean that was twice “discovered” — once by the Spanish and once by the Dutch — and was until recently part of the Netherlands Antilles. Its far-flung history may be all over the map… but you’ll find the island itself located just right. Also just right is the climate — the annual average is 81.5° F — so you’ll have plenty of reasons to spend time outdoors. When in the water, diving and snorkeling happen to be some of the best ways to see the reef surrounding the island… but they’re also great for cooling off.
Considering cruises to Colombia? You’ll want to make sure Cartagena is at the top of your vacation list. If you tell someone you’re planning on visiting Cartagena, make sure you tell ‘em which one — Colombia’s fifth-largest city found its namesake in a town in Spain that’s over 2,000 years old. But Carnival’s cruises to Colombia take you to Cartagena, Jr. — only about 500 years young — where you’ll find a vibrant Colombian city with a range of neighborhoods like the bustling Downtown, the traditional Getsemaní, and even the waterfront Bocagrande… an entire cultural center on a walkable peninsula featuring beaches, shopping and nightlife galore. Put yourself at the center of all this action with one of Carnival’s cruises to Cartagena.
Panama Canal, Partial Transit
Best known for connecting east to west, the Panama Canal is the right thing in the right place for speeding up transit by sea. But what about taking it slow? It’s great for that too! With its mouth located on the Atlantic near the city of Colón, this decades-in-the-making canal flows past the lush green scenery surrounding the canal's impressive Gatún Locks, on its way towards the expanse of Lake Gatún itself. You’ll go with the flow as you enter — and exit — the lake through these locks, getting two chances to take in up-close views of the land.
Limon, Costa Rica
Cruise to Costa Rica to discover why the locals have been called the happiest people in the world. Costa Rica’s abundant ecotourism treasures await when you board your Carnival cruise to Limón. From here you can soar above rainforests, feel the mist from tumbling waterfalls, and swim in clear Caribbean seas. These make Limón, Costa Rica a top spot in the region for embarking on eco-adventures. When you cruise to Limón, don’t forget to check out the city itself, the source for millions of bananas that get shipped northward every year. Whether in the Caribbean waters or amongst nature on land, you’ll feel refreshed and invigorated by your cruise to Costa Rica.
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. With non-stop zip line action, ancient discoveries at the nearby Mayan ruins, or time spent with your toes in the sand, a cruise to Cozumel may just top your best vacations list… before you even get home.
