In the mood to ring in the New Year at sea with braised lamb shanks?
Recently, Carnival Cruise announced the details of its plans for the holidays, which include special activities on all 24 of the ships in Carnival’s fleet.
Activities on deck will include caroling, ugly sweater parties and a special tree lighting ceremony before each embarkment, all scored by classic holiday music.
Additionally, all Carnival (CCL) – Get Free Report cruises will host non-denominational Christmas and Hanukah services on board, with prayer, hymns, and fellowship on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The Hanukah services start on December 18 and continue through every night of Hanukah, and will include traditional food, songs, and prayer to commemorate the occasion.

Recently, John Heald, Carnival Cruise Line brand ambassador, released details of Carnival’s upcoming holiday menu.
