SAILING AUG 4 - 11, 2013
Mardi Gras in August...? Well, when Festival at Sea descends on New Orleans, anything is possible! In 2013 our signature Summer Caribbean Charter will sail onboard the Carnival Conquest from New Orleans ... through the Gulf of Mexico to Cozumel, the Cayman Islands and Jamaica. Throw in a "Nawlins" style pre-cruise party, and you'll be ready to experience the Big Easy with fun and flair!
Once on the ship, you'll notice there’s fun everywhere you look ... the dance clubs are delicious, the show lounges spectacular, and each bar makes even a simple drink a chance to chill in a setting less ordinary. Our Festival at Sea staff plans events for cruisers young and old alike, including our top name entertainment ... old school and new school clubs (with the music you wanna listen to) ... family friendly activities ... games for singles and couples ... theme nights ... costume parties ... there's a reason we call it FESTIVAL at SEA!
"The camaraderie of cruising with over 2000 other black folks from all around the country is what truly makes Festival at Sea the special event that it is."
There's also Love Connection and Speed Dating games for singles, plus Funk Aerobics and African Dance Aerobics classes. Join the Ahneva Ahneva Fashion Show, the Spoken Word Poetry Cafe or participate in a Bid Whist, Dominoes, Golf or Tennis tournament. And that's just the beginning.
Festival at Sea brings it's own DJ teams to rock the clubs on board all week long. Our professional MC's and DJ's play the music you wanna hear whether you're Old School, New School or anywhere in between.
And with several clubs to choose from each night, you can change it up anytime. We also have a deck party under the stars, and party theme nights like Wild Wild West and our Cool White Night.
Plus, you have access to everything else you normally would on a Carnival Cruise. 3 swimming pools. A spa and health club with massages, steam rooms and saunas. A full casino featuring slots and tables.
Shore excursions. A shopping promenade. And when you're hungry, there are full service restaurants for fine dining as well as casual eateries including Pizza, Asian, Rotisserie and an International Deli.
Since all meals are included, you may want to leave a little room for dessert. Additionally, for a special evening, there is a private supper club that carries a nominal surcharge.
Perhaps the best thing about a Festival at Sea cruise however, is YOU. You make the experience possible. The camaraderie of cruising with over 2000 other black folks from all around the country is what truly makes Festival at Sea the special event that it is.
Come join us on this beautiful voyage down the west coast of Mexico and see for yourself why Festival at Sea is the only way we cruise!
