Carnival Spirit to Make First Calls to Vietnam and Thailand on Singapore Sailing



Carnival Cruise Line has announced a special voyage to Singapore for Carnival Spirit, giving Australian holidaymakers a rare chance to enjoy an adventure through Asia combined with the fun of a Carnival cruise.  

On sale now, Carnival Spirit’s 19-night cruise sails from Sydney on May 3, 2018 and will include five fabulous ports, including Airlie Beach and Darwin in Australia, Bali in Indonesia, as well as the ship’s maiden calls to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam for an overnight stay, and beautiful Ko Samui in Thailand. Carnival Spirit will reach the South East Asia hub of Singapore on May 22.


The Singapore voyage will feature the cruise line’s new Carnival Journeys enrichment program, designed to offer guests a deeper, richer connection with destinations visited as well as a fun and fully engaged experience onboard.


Guests on the cruise will have the chance to join Carnival’s new Academy of Fun knowledge-building sessions, and discover more about each destination with local entertainment classes featuring music and dancing. The 1980’s themed Throwback Sea Days will provide the perfect excuse to channel Madonna on the dance floor and enjoy a midnight buffet, and there’ll also be time to get to know the ship’s crew with special Q&A sessions, ship tours and even a crew talent show.


Carnival Cruise Line Vice President Jennifer Vandekreeke said Carnival Spirit’s Singapore cruise would open up a world of opportunities for holidaymakers, enabling them to discover exotic destinations in Asia while having more fun than ever onboard the popular superliner.


“We’re excited to be taking our guests on such a special cruise, with Carnival Cruise Line’s first-ever visits to Ho Chi Minh City and Ko Samui and a fun-filled itinerary packed with new experiences both on and off the ship,” Ms Vandekreeke said.


Carnival Spirit will enter dry dock when she reaches Singapore in May 2018. She will then sail on a series of voyages around Asia from Shanghai during the local summer season before returning home to Australia in late 2018.
