Cruises from Barcelona make for some of the most unforgettable vacations you can imagine. Barcelona looks like a city that should be known for its architecture… and, naturally, it is. From monuments in Romanesque and Renaissance styles to Gothic spires and contemporary curves, there’s little surprise Barcelona was the creative playground of acclaimed architect Antoni Gaudí. But that’s just one reason why cruises out of Barcelona are so seductive. Barcelona’s a feast for the eyes and the palate, alike, and be sure not to miss the chance to try tapas as and visit spots like the La Rambla, Port Vell and especially Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia Cathedral. Fun beach bars overlooking the Mediterranean, sleek Spanish designer stores, and Gaudí’s surreal buildings make Barcelona, Spain a whimsical and unique place to visit. For a Mediterranean cruise, Spain is a great place to start — sample the good stuff on one of Carnival’s cruises from Barcelona.
Cruise to Málaga and enjoy one of Spain’s oldest cities. First founded by the Phoenicians, the city of Málaga had hosted a number of civilizations over its 3,000 years. The end result is a city that’s a cornucopia of Roman and Moorish influences, among others. Travel to Málaga and enjoy the city’s many museums, especially Museo Picasso Málaga… after all, this is the city where the artist himself was born. Take a side-trip to nearby Granada, where visitors can explore the Alhambra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that’s at once an imposing fortress, impressive palace and a small town.
Best known as the gateway to the Mediterranean, Gibraltar is a port whose big features defy its reputation as a tiny British territory. For instance, the Rock of Gibraltar is more a mountain than a pebble — despite its understated name — and features limestone burrow tunnels that helped Gibraltar fend off invaders for over 200 years. The most scenic way up the rock is the Mediterranean Steps — imagine a staircase leading up the great rock towards even greater vistas. Down below in Gibraltar (and especially on Main Street) shopping is big… and perhaps more importantly, it’s duty-free.
Discover Portugal’s bright, fun-loving capital city on your cruise to Lisbon. Straddling seven hills, hugging the banks of the River Tagus — and crowned by the storybook castle of São Jorge — Lisbon, Portugal is a visually stunning place to visit, and arriving by sea is doing it right! The nation’s hundreds of years of nautical heritage is concentrated in Lisbon, and the riverside Belém district is where Portuguese navigators like Magellan and Vasco da Gama would begin their journeys. Today, cruise ship passengers make landfall not far from that spot. By the way, the city has modern claims to fame, too! With its rumbling yellow trams and stately plazas, irresistible patisseries and bluesy fado music, expect exotic sights and sounds — and more — on your cruise to Lisbon.
The Azores are breathtaking, and Ponta Delgada is the capital of breathtaking. These are facts. Experience the natural wonders of a remote Atlantic Ocean outpost on a Carnival cruise to Azores. São Miguel Island is your port for Azores cruises, where you can walk the rim of an extinct volcano crater, dine on cuisine cooked in volcanic water, and marvel at buildings decked in volcanic rock. The natural spectacle continues in the waters surrounding Azores, Portugal, home to breaching whales, jumping dolphins, swimming sea turtles.
Your first look at Halifax, Nova Scotia is from across the enormous natural harbor that also hosts the verdant George’s Island. Ships have arrived at this key Atlantic seaport just like this for centuries, including both the million immigrants who passed through in the 1900s, as well as the Halifax salvage boats recovering wreckage from the Titanic. Besides a modern city abuzz with museums and shops, you’ll find a massive fort overlooking the waterfront and idyllic villages for postcard-perfect nature walks on your Halifax cruise.
Start your Carnival cruise from the city that defined ‘cosmopolitan’: New York City. This urban island overflows with art and architecture, lively ethnic neighborhoods, designer shops… and the best restaurants in the world, from the ultra-high-end to the comfy neighborhood hole-in-the-wall. The top sights are clustered in Midtown Manhattan — you can easily check out Grand Central Terminal, shop on Fifth Avenue, and see the twinkling lights of Broadway® in Times Square on the same day. As your cruise leaving from New York glides down the Hudson River towards sunny islands or historic New England harbors, you’ll pass metropolitan must-sees, world-renowned icons like the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty.
