How to Spoil Mum this Mother’s Day onboard a Carnival Cruise Ship

Psst, listen in dads and kids; Mother’s Day is just around the corner. For the lucky ones who will be spending Sunday May 8 onboard a Carnival cruise, we have got you covered. We’ve made it easy and mapped out the best bits for mum and the family to make it a Mother’s Day she won’t forget. Jam pack the day with some much-deserved surprises or do as little as mum would like, remember it’s her special day!


Morning stroll around the ship
Rise and shine Carnival cruisers, it’s Mother’s Day! Kick off the day with a 360‎° view of the deck with mum. Take a few snaps and selfies of the glorious panoramic views, followed by a blissful Seaday Brunch.

Poolside Relaxin’
Mosey on down to the outdoor Carnival pools on Deck 9. Set up camp with the family on a group of deck chairs and let the unwinding begin! Let Mum relax and enjoy the sunshine with her favourite magazine while the kids run a muck in the pool with dad. Or jump right in and enjoy the fun.

Mum vs. the Green Thunder
Think you have a thrill seeking mum? Well, the Green Thunder has her name on it! Have some family fun with our onboard waterslide at the Carnival WaterWorks™. Cheer on mum as she bravely shoots down the slide travelling at speeds of up to 65kph.


Surprise flowers from Cherry on Top*
Continue the spoiling with a bouquet of flowers and sweet treats to match. Cherry on Top is your one stop shop for lollies and flowers here at Carnival. Mum sure is in for a treat!



Game Central
Join in the Carnival fun onboard with games for all ages. Get mum, dad and the kids together for a scavenger hunt at sea, or get your thinking caps on for trivia in the Battle of the Ages!

De-stress at Spa Carnival™*
After all that fun and lounging what else could mum want? Pampering, of course! Whether she’s after a massage, facial, spa bath or pedicure, a Carnival cruise has it all. Don’t forget, there’s also a sauna and steam room in the Spa Carnival complex – hello tranquility!


Dine at Nouveau Restaurant*
Now that mum’s checked out of pamper heaven, it’s time to doll up and spoil her with a night out at the beautiful Nouveau Restaurant. Take the spiral staircase up to the Sun Deck and meet your host for the evening. Get ready to sweep mum off her feet with a gourmet meal she’ll be telling all her friends about on land.
