DISCOVER CUBA May 18, 2017

CUBA’S RECORDED HISTORY GOES BACK MORE

THAN 500 YEARS. IN 1492, CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS REPORTED THE EXISTENCE OF WHAT HE CALLED “THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LAND THAT HUMAN EYES HAVE EVER SEEN.” HE SET FOOT ON THE NORTHERN SHORE OF CUBA, WHICH WAS INHABITED BY GUANAHATABEY, SIBONEY AND TAINO INDIANS AT THE TIME. TWO DECADES LATER, DIEGO VELÁZQUEZ HEADED THE EUROPEANS’ CONQUEST AND COLONIZATION OF THE ISLAND, WITH THE FOUNDING OF THE FIRST SPANISH SETTLEMENTS HERE.

EMS WEEK 2017 on the Carnival Pride May 21, 2017

Carnival Pride charms, alright — it’s a treat for the eyes, the taste buds…

and of course the fun buds.  Dine refined, from the zen-like simplicity of

Bonsai Sushi to the muted hues of the Normandie Restaurant… not to

mention the Renaissance-era allure of David’s Steakhouse. And of course

there’s real, delectable substance under all that style. For something a little more casual, try a main course from our main man, Guy Fieri, at Guy’s Burger Joint. The Mexican heat’s optional at BlueIguana Cantina, but make your next stop Cherry on Top — our candy-and-more store — where the sweet’s required.  You’ll find yourself with room to move at Beauties Dance Club, and a hard time sitting still at Playlist Productions. All around this cruise ship you’ll discover even more ways to stay cool, like an adult-only pool at Serenity, a fun-only midship pool featuring a retractable roof… and Carnival Pride's splashy onboard waterpark, Carnival WaterWorks. Alongside the pool is the big-fun Carnival Seaside Theater™, while Seuss at Sea is a good time for those who love a good rhyme. Camp Carnival, Circle “C” and Club O2 prove that we’ve got hotspots for all the cool kids… while at Hasbro, The Game Show, kids and adults join forces in a friendly, larger-than-life game show showdown!
