Formed in 2004, Carnival Australia is a branch of Carnival plc, and is the backbone of the cruise industry in this region with the P&O Cruises brand sailing from Australia since December 1932 when the P&O mail ship, Strathaird, embarked on a five-day cruise to Brisbane and Norfolk Island. Carnival Spirit is nearly the length of three footy fields and 12 decks tall of things to do, see, taste and try. Whether you’re after an action-packed holiday or just want to relax and unwind, you can create the type of cruise holiday you want. From the waterpark, mini-golf, two-deck fitness centre, jogging track and sports court to the Serenity area, day spa and pools and spas, there’s truly something for everyone. You’ll be spoilt for choice with tons of dining options from four restaurants including an Outdoor BBQ and with 16 bars and lounges to choose from featuring live entertainment and shows, you can do so much or so little on board Carnival Spirit.
