Orlando and Clearwater is a popular combination for a twin centre holiday to Florida, before setting sail on a Caribbean cruise and for good reason. Enjoy all that Orlando’s world famous theme parks have to offer before moving on to the Gulf Coast and the white sands, blue waters and serenity of Clearwater Bay on this fun-filled holiday to Florida.
Orlando is an action-packed holiday destination known as the Theme Park Capital of the World! No visit to Orlando is really complete without a visit to one of its famous theme parks. There are so many to choose from, Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld and LegoLand to mention a few. They say it takes more than 62 days to experience every visitor attraction in Orlando. If this is your first visit we recommend that you start by exploring the attractions around International Drive, or I-Drive as it is known locally, in the heart of the city.
After the excitement of Orlando, it’s time for some rest and relaxation at Clearwater Bay. Clearwater Beach consistently ranks among the top beaches in Florida. Here you’ll find soft white sand and excellent swimming conditions in warm seas. Lounging on Florida’s Gulf Coast is not the only attraction at this popular beach resort. Clearwater Bay has plenty of options to entertain the entire family. Explore the aquarium, museums, boat rides and spas, before heading out to do a spot of shopping, there is no shortage of malls and outlets in the area.
Then it’s time to board Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Miracle for a 7 night Caribbean cruise. Carnival Miracle takes you to another world. Not only does this ship visit stunning destinations, but features incredible on-board spaces inspired by elements of fantasy. Escape from reality as you take in a show at the Phantom Lounge, a drink at Odyssey Bar or a dance at Dr. Frankenstein’s Lab. You’ll find great food all over the place, from the casual fare of Horatio’s, to the artful eats of the Bacchus and Ariadne dining rooms… not to mention the world-class cuts at Nick & Nora’s Steakhouse. No matter your age, lifelong childhood-favourite games come to life, on-stage, at Hasbro, The Game Show. And don’t forget: the sweetest way to cap off the day is with a treat from Cherry on Top, the on-board candy-and-more store.
Take a walk through Gatsby’s Garden which offers a beautiful space to reflect whilst on the cruise. Horatio’s Restaurant is the spot to have a great ocean view to go along with your delicious meal and the Mad Hatter’s Ball is a fun lounge where you can sit back and catch a magic show or show off your skills with a night of karaoke. During the day, lap up the sun at the beautiful poolside.
