Carnival Cruise Line has released the updated list of onboard parties for every vessel in the fleet, including exclusive parties for the new Carnival Jubilee – just in time to ring in the new year.

From popular favorite events to exclusive events for some ships and special Carnival Journeys voyages, there are fun parties awaiting every guest who sets sail with Carnival in the coming months.

Carnival Cruise Line Updated 2024 Theme Party List

Carnival Cruise Line Brand Ambassador John Heald has released the updated list of themed parties for every Carnival cruise ship. These parties are a highlight of each sailing for many cruisers, who may choose what to pack based on what outfits match the different parties onboard.

It should be noted that outdoor deck parties may change due to weather, if conditions will not permit the event to be held on the Lido Deck as planned. This could be due to high winds or rain that might endanger sound equipment or make the surface unsafe for guests to get their groove on.

“Take a look at what our brilliant stable of Cruise Directors and their Fun Squads will be hosting for you when you cruise,” said Heald.

The themed parties for every Carnival ship are the following:

  • Carnival Breeze: Rock the Promenade, Motown Showdown, Decades Atrium Party, White Night Silent Party, 80s Rock and Glow

Enjoying Onboard Parties

The onboard parties are a highlight of any cruise and a fun way for guests to enjoy music, dancing, and more. Depending on the type of party, some events are held on the Lido Deck, while others are hosted in the ship’s main atrium, where guests can join in from different decks with great views. Other events may be held in the onboard nightclub or other spaces as necessary.

Different cruise directors also add their own flair to each party, whether through crowd interaction, music trivia, flashy costumes, prizes tossed to the crowd, and more. Line dances or dance-offs can be part of different events, or there may be costume contests, singing challenges, or other competitions.

Many guests will specifically pack items to coordinate with the theme parties, such as an all white outfit for the Silent White Party, or day-glo gear for the Rock and Glow events. This is not necessary, however, and everyone is welcome to enjoy each party in their own way.

Each cruise will have several parties onboard, but passengers should check the Fun Times (either through the Carnival Hub App or the printed version available from Guest Services) for the days and times of each event. These special-themed parties are only offered one time per sailing.

Some parties are also limited-time events and may not be offered on future sailings once ships change sailing regions or itineraries. During the Alaska sailing season, for example, ships in the Last Frontier will often offer themed Alaska parties, but may drop other parties to accommodate the exclusive event.
