Carnival Celebration: 6 Zones You Must Experience


You know, it’s hard work making effortlessly-fun vacations. That’s why we’re looking forward to kicking back with you on the new Carnival Celebration. So please bring that unique Carnival spirit... and know that this ship’s bringing the fun. Just like sister ship Mardi Gras®, Carnival Celebration has six Zones — themed areas that bring together incredible experiences and flavor. 

Celebration Central

This Zone is designed to make an impression… and that’s good because it’s going to be your first one! You can count on Carnival Celebration’s atrium to set the vacay vibes for your whole cruise. Look up and you’re honestly in for an eyeful — floor-to-ceiling windows, 14-foot LED screens, a ceiling of 1,400 color-changing lights… everything points to BIG FUN happening in here. Center Stage features a rotating selection of live entertainment, while Tropicale Bar serves up great drinks with a nostalgia chaser nodding to our first ship to sport the iconic red, white and blue funnel. Aquaria Bar features an ocean-themed glass mural (Also: great drinks here too!). Then there’s fan-faves, from cups of comfort at JavaBlue™ Café to great eats at Bonsai Sushi™ and Bonsai Teppanyaki™, and some very entertaining reasons to come back, like Piano Bar 88The Punchliner Comedy Club™ and more.

The Gateway

In The Gateway zone, “international flavor” isn’t just an expression, but a way of life! Design, décor, cuisine and even the entertainment is inspired by grand locations, landmarks from around the world. With themed nights like Abroad in Europe, Far East Voyage, and Mexico Lindo, you can get a taste for different foods, drinks and entertainment from around the globe! We’re talking restaurants and bars like Latitudes™ with its old-school railway station vibe, The Golden Jubilee™ featuring a unique mix of great drinks and live music, plus Emeril’s Bistro 1397™, which is deliciously all over the map. And don’t miss your chance to sip a little cocktail magic at returning fan-favorite Alchemy Bar®.

Summer Landing

When you think of summer, you’re probably thinking about swimming pools and barbecues… but what about a brewmaster crafting you everything from refreshing cold brews to citrusy IPAs? Well, Summer Landing can deliver on all three! With a poolside bar and Guy’s Pig & Anchor Smokehouse | Brewhouse, you’ll be feeling the summery vibes any time you visit. Oh, and did we mention soft serve ice cream?


820 Biscayne


You never forget your hometown, and Carnival Celebration hasn’t either. That’s why 820 Biscayne is a tribute to Miami. Just check out the art deco designs, neon splashes and great flavors! On that note there’s Bar 820 for tropical cocktails and Cuban coffee, plus Deco Deli serving up a selection of classic sandwiches… Cuban faves included. And while Miami isn’t quite known as a pizza town, we don’t think you’ll mind that we’re serving up the cheesy stuff until 4 a.m. at Miami Slice. (Roll up your sleeves and dig in!) And like any cosmopolitan center, dining quality and variety counts big. That’s why you’ll find Cucina del Capitano and Rudi’s Seagrill restaurants in the neighborhood.


Celebrations can be lowkey too of course–if you’re sitting by the water with a tiki drink, who’s to say that doesn’t count? Well, the two-tiered RedFrog Tiki Bar next to the pool can set you up right.  Delicious food is key to any celebration too, so Big Chicken™ and Guy’s Burger Joint™ serve up fan favorites, and the New England-inspired Seafood Shack™ and BlueIguana Cantina™ are sure to hit the spot.

The Ultimate Playground

Don't let the name fool you — this zone is ages everybody and up. Kids, you're going to love this. And adults, the playground has grown up with you. Of course The Ultimate Playground starts with BOLT®, the first rollercoaster at sea, an all-electric thrill ride that puts the power of speed in your hands. But that's only the beginning — this playground has the largest Carnival WaterWorks™ ever with three huge spiraling slides, plus SportSquare™  featuring an entire mini-golf course, full-court basketball and a ropes course. And, of course, more. Ultimate enough for you?

We know your excitement is already bursting and ready to sail away on Carnival Celebration. To get started all you have to do is call your travel advisor and book!
