Itinerary

  • Depart UK for Austin, overnight at hotel.
  • Austin is the state capital of Texas, an inland city bordering the Hill Country region. Home to the University of Texas flagship campus, Austin is known for its eclectic live-music scene centred around country, blues and rock. Its many parks and lakes are popular for hiking, biking, swimming and boating. South of the city, Formula One's Circuit of the Americas raceway has hosted the United States Grand Prix.
  • Board the train from Austin to San Antonio, overnight at hotel.
  • San Antonio is a major city in south-central Texas with a rich colonial heritage. The Alamo, an 18th-century Spanish mission preserved as a museum, marks an infamous 1836 battle for Texan independence from Mexico. Following the San Antonio River, the miles-long River Walk is a landmark pedestrian promenade lined with cafes and shops. HemisFair Park's 750-ft. Tower of the Americas overlooks the city.
  • Board the train from San Antonio to Houston, overnight at hotel.
  • Transfer from Houston airport to Galveston port to embark ship.
  • Relax and make the most of the myriad of facilities available on board the ship, from fantastic entertainment to delicious and diverse dining options.
  • The Roatan islands are situated in Honduras are where you will find Mahogany Bay - a silky sand beach with diamond-clear seas. Roatán, the largest of Honduras's Bay Islands, is a real beauty, built on a backbone of volcanic rock and ringed by the world's second largest coral reef. Honduras promises superb diving and fishing and swoon-worthy beaches.
  • Costa Maya is a small tourist region in Mexico on the border with Belize, which until recently was British Honduras. The area is generally undeveloped but has a large pier with a new and modern tourist shopping mall to accommodate cruise ships. The centre has a central plaza with saltwater pools and 'swim-up' style bars. The nearest village to the cruise port is the fishing village of Mahahual approximately 3 kilometers away with soft sand beaches, grass thatched palapas, and a coral reef a short distance off-shore called Banco Chinchorro, as well as several bars, restaurants, and shops. Costa Maya is the closest port of access to many of the lesser known Mayan ruins in the Yucatan Peninsula.
  • This island is just 12 miles long and situated 20 minutes ferry ride from the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. Cozumel is really a staging post for cruise passengers to visit mainland Mexico with its Mayan ruins at Tulum. Cozumel town is lively with its many bars and myriad of shops. Explore the Xel Ha aquatic park with its subterranean rivers, natural pools and sacred Mayan Lagoon. The scuba diving here is said to be the best in Caribbean. The best beach is located in the Punta Sur Ecological Park.

Ship Information


Cruise Overview
Carnival Jubilee is currently under construction at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Turku, Finland. The ship will share features from its two siblings which include six themed indoor areas, BOLT, the first roller coaster at sea, 20 different cabin categories and a three-deck atrium overlooking the ocean that converts to an entertainment venue at night.The ship will also be powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG) as part of Carnival's commitment to sustainability and emissions reduction.
Cabin Details
Design is more than just the way things look - it's as much about how they work. And staterooms aboard Carnival Jubileeâ„¢ are packed with innovative changes to both. It's the way the ring-lit vanity mirror lights you evenly and shadow-free as you get ready. How the ottoman cushion flips over to serve as an extra table. And even those reading lights, recessed into the wall so you can read in bed without waking anyone! These details are really more than just details. Better comfort, lighting and storage all spring from a deep understanding we've developed around how people actually use their staterooms'¦ and how small changes to the room add up to make the experience that much better. (Enough USB charging ports for everybody's stuff? Oh yes!) Thoughtful, guest-centric design is how we do it'¦ and all this in-room convenience comes paired with a fresh new look.
Dining Details
The main dining room will be on deck 6 and 7, the Pacific Restaurant will feature all the usual carnival favourites. The new ship will have a distinctive ocean theme 'Currents' and 'Shores' in two neighbourhoods, with immersive decor and artwork emphasising the nautical nature of the new ship. Currents will be the theme on Decks 6 and 7, a trans formative space that brings guests below the waves and into fun underwater worlds with huge LED windows, a wave-shaped LED ceiling, theatrical show lighting, and captivating sound design for a truly immersive experience just aft of Grand Central. Emeril's Bistro 717 is also located in Currents, with creole cuisine and an expansive seafood selection and raw bar. Serving delicious options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the menu includes delicious dishes such as shrimp and grits, fresh oysters, and Emeril's signature jambalaya. The Shores zone is located on Deck 8, and is a water-meets-waves theme inspired by how people enjoy the seaside including piers, boardwalks, and beaches. Coluorful designs in the space include a Ferris wheel-inspired ceiling, wood plank-styled floors, and tropical and festive hues throughout. Coastal Slice will offer fresh, hot pizza, and Beach Buns is a deli-style venue for hot dogs and sandwiches. The Marina Bar includes more of the nautical theme with fish-scale wall patterns and a wooden ore beam ceiling. Seating is available both inside and outside for guests to connect with the water. Also in Shores are popular and familiar venues such as Rudi's Seagrill and Cucina del Capitano, along with the entrance to the Pixels gallery.Connecting both Currents and Shores is a stunning sculpture of a school of fish, swirling three decks tall between Decks 6, 7, and 8 and surrounded by a glass staircase to bring guests between the themed zones.
Activities Details
What does Carnival Jubilee offer in terms of 'things to do?' Across the entire ship, from the bottom deck to the top, you'll find 18 restaurants, 7 bars, 42 activities, and 8 other venues for your enjoyment. A totally bodacious deck party with awesome giveaways, a rad 80's themed dance contest, a tubular 80's pop concert with our onboard Rock band and of course, the Thriller dance. The 80's Rock-N-Glow Party is a high energy, fun and unique experience that showcases our exciting musical offerings. Whether you rock up to the party in leg warmers, neon pink shirts, big gold chains and even bigger hair, you will be welcomed to dance the night away on the open deck. The 80's Rock-N-Glow Party is featured on cruises six days and longer (that feature two deck parties). On shorter cruises, it may be featured as the only deck party or replaced with the Mega Deck Party. Grand Central - This area of the ship spans Deck 6, 7 and 8. During the day, it's a space for guests to enjoy a drink from the JavaBlue Café, or one of the area's bars as they take in breathtaking ocean views. At night, the zone transforms as movable LED screens and a stage create an entertainment space. Grand Central offerings also include Piano Bar 88, The Punchliner Comedy Club, Cloud 9 Fitness Center, Cherry on Top, Bonsai Sushi and Teppanyaki, a variety of shopping venues, as well as a casino and theater. The Ultimate Playground - BOLT, dubbed 'the Ultimate Sea Coaster,' is the centerpiece of the ship's top deck and features all-electric, motorcycle-like vehicles that race along an 800-foot-long track, 187 feet above the sea achieving speeds of up to 40 mph. BOLT will soar above other popular attractions, including WaterWorks aqua park and SportSquare featuring a mini-golf course, full-court basketball and a ropes course.
