Still Plenty Of Opportunities To Take Mom On A ‘Fun Ship’ Cruise This Mother’s Day

       Although Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away, there are still plenty of opportunities to show your appreciation for mom this year by whisking her away with a “Fun Ship” getaway aboard Carnival Cruise Lines.

            With six departures ranging from three to five days available over the May 11, 2008, Mother’s Day holiday, Carnival’s “Fun Ships” will offer moms of all ages an opportunity to visit a variety of warm, tropical destinations in Mexico, The Bahamas, or Caribbean. And with an array of shipboard amenities designed to appeal to the entire family, mom won’t be the only one having fun.

           Carnival’s three- to five-day cruises departing over Mother’s Day weekend include:

Treat mom to unforgettable experiences such as swimming with stingrays, climbing Ocho Rios’ famous Dunn’s River Falls or exploring ancient Mayan ruins. Shop-aholics also can experience incredible duty-free bargains at the various ports.

            Aboard ship, moms can indulge at Spa Carnival with a pampering massage or facial or relax in the sauna or steam room.  Dining options abound, with delicious full-service meals in elegant main dining rooms, a variety of casual choices in expansive poolside eateries, or even breakfast in bed, compliments of Carnival’s 24-hour stateroom service. 

            Carnival ships offer numerous shipboard amenities including a variety of entertainment options, multiple nightclubs and lounges and, on the Carnival Imagination and Carnival Inspiration, the new Serenity adults-only retreat.

  1. I was privileged to be on Destiny during Mothers Day. It was the best Mothers Day gift I have ever had. Having said that – what made it so special is that all our children were with us (even though three out of the four of them are of college age). Destiny made it very special for the moms. I would go again for Mother’s Day!!!

    Thank you,
