Carnival Panorama full ship tour from bottom to top.
Hi Cruisers, We’ve been on Carnival Panorama twice in the past year, and we’ve had lots of opportunities to get to know this beautiful ship. We’ve walked the ship from bottom to top and back to front taking small video clips of most public areas on the ship. We are super happy to share this video with you. If you plan on cruising on Carnival Panorama we think you’ll find this full ship tour to be a terrific resource. If you have any friends or family planning a cruise on Carnival Panorama, please SHARE THIS ARTICLE.
Welcome onboard Carnival Panorama. We’ll show you around, deck by deck, starting on Deck 2 in the Family Harbor. Family Harbor accommodations and suites offer parents and kids room to relax in an exclusive zone.
Carnival Panorama Deck 2
The Family Harbor lounge features a continental breakfast buffet on port days, daily snacks, family activities, a dedicated space for large screen TVs, and computer terminals. Families feel extra pampered with daily snack selections, coffee, and Swirls’ soft serve ice cream.
Check out our Family Harbor suite and lounge video below
Carnival Panorama Deck 3
Up on Deck 3, you’ll find the Vista Restaurant. There’s a wide variety of seating options, from larger parties to intimate dinners for two. Also located on Deck 3, the Horizon dining room is similar in decor and style, and offers some lovely ocean views. The hard working staff in both dining rooms made our cruise extra special.
Guest Services on Carnival Panorama is also located on Deck 3, with a dedicated line for Diamond and Platinum guests toward the left side.
Nearby, you can learn more about Shore Excursions at the Carnival Adventures Desk during limited hours.
Carnival Panorama Deck 4
Deck 4 is a busy place, starting with the Limelight Lounge located toward the back of the ship. This popular spot hosts seminars, private events by day, comedy and karaoke by night. It also serves as the ship’s nightclub and features its own bar.
Panorama’s Carnival Kitchen offers a cooking show-type setup, and is also temporarily doubling as the ship’s venue for the Chef’s Table. You can book hands-on cooking classes here, which vary by sailing. Pasta & pizza making, sushi classes, cupcake classes, and tailgate party menus are just a few of the available options.
Nearby, the Heroes Tribute Bar, a new concept on Carnival Panorama – offers sports bar vibes and an awesome drink menu with a portion of proceeds supporting Carnival’s partner, Operation Homefront. Be sure to stop by to check out the memorabilia, and order one of the signature cocktails, like the Green Beret, Shore Leave or Blue Angel. This spot gives us all the feels, and we think you’ll agree.
Next up is Carnival Panorama’s casino. With a modern design, ample slots & table games, this is an extremely popular venue on Panorama.
Spanning several decks, the Panorama Atrium is a hub for live entertainment, shopping & gathering with friends old & new. The bar provides a stunning focal point for the giant LED Dreamscape, which is constantly changing throughout the day, throughout the cruise, and through all the seasons. The Atrium Bar and surrounding seating are a great place to grab a drink and enjoy the sights and sounds.
Forward on Deck 4 is the Liquid Lounge, Panorama’s main theater. There’s a dedicated bar here, convenient drink holders built right into the seats, and plenty of options for seating on either level. Just be sure to watch for the poles which can obstruct the view in some spots.
Carnival Panorama Deck 5
Up one level on Deck 5 aft, you’ll encounter the vintage themed Havana Bar. It offers Cuban coffee, Cuban cocktails and music and dancing well into the night. Just outside the bar, you’ll find the Havana pool area. While the Havana Bar is open to all guests on Panorama, The Havana pool is for the exclusive use of guests in the Havana area and grand suites. This area features two large hot tubs, an infinity pool, and a relaxation area.
Moving forward on Deck 5, the Ocean Plaza bar offers an indoor/outdoor space. There’s lots of cozy seating available, as well as a stage for entertainment and activities. Tucked in the back corner, you’ll find a breakfast buffet that many cruisers don’t know about until well into their cruise. Just past Ocean Plaza, Java Blue Cafe and Shake Spot share space with the internet cafe. Here you can buy coffee, espresso and tea drinks and gourmet pastries.
Just down the way, Guy’s Pig & Anchor Smokehouse offers a full bar, and upcharge dinner options. Be sure to check out the complimentary lunch options here on embarkation and sea days too. The Barbecue and sides are hearty and delicious and served with a smile.
Pixels Gallery offers digital viewing stations to review and purchase photos as well as accessories for purchase during certain hours.
Alchemy Bar, a Carnival favorite, serves as one of the hottest gathering spots on Deck 5. Watch for drink specials and special events like martini tastings in your Carnival Hub app.
Fahrenheit 555, Panorama’s steakhouse serves up traditional steakhouse fare in an upscale but cozy atmosphere. Don’t miss their specialty cocktails, and if you’re lucky, a free bottle of wine for reserving here on night one. The steakhouse has its own bar, and a comprehensive wine list.
Across the way, Bonsai Sushi offers a la carte sushi and Japanese food with excellent service. You can sit at the sushi bar, or opt for a table in the main restaurant. In our experience, portions here are big, so heed the advice of the staff when it comes to making your ordering decisions.
Opposite Bonsai Sushi, Bonsai Teppanyaki serves up hibachi meals for an upcharge, at lunch and dinner. Again, the portions here are sizable, so come hungry and don’t miss the dessert.
Piano Bar 88 hosts singalongs in an intimate environment, with lots of cozy seating and it’s own bar. Get here early as the place fills up during the evenings.
The Library Bar isn’t really a bar, but it is well, a library. With lots of books to choose from and ample seating, this space tends to be under used. It’s a great place to get some work done in a quiet setting if you must, and an even better place to read or play a board game.
Moving on to Carnival Panorama’s sweet spot, Cherry On Top offers bulk candy, stuffed animals and other gifts, and a rotating supply of gift items.

Carnival Panorama Deck 6
Up on Deck 6, the Warehouse Arcade is surprisingly large, and, for a fee, has a variety of games. Some of the games yield tickets that you can redeem for prizes. Kids and teens will find hours of fun here with classics like skee ball and the milk jug toss.
Club 02, the teen center onboard for kids aged 15-17 has a cool motif, and plenty of space to hang out. Circle C, for ages 12-14 was closed on our voyage, but here’s a look at the entrance.
Carnival Panorama Deck 7 & 8
The Sky Zone, Panorama’s trampoline park is located just upstairs from the arcade and teen zones, and offers jump sessions for a fee both day and night. There’s lockers to store your stuff, and merchandise for sale too.
Carnival Panorama Deck 10 – Lido
Ready to take around Deck 10, Panorama’s Lido deck? We’ll start aft with the tides bar, which is directly adjacent to the Tides pool. There are two hot tubs surrounding the pool as well. This is a great gathering spot all throughout the cruise, and offers stunning wake views. Nearby, the Seafood Shack offers upcharge items like lobster rolls, clam chowder, lobster bits and fish and chips, just to name a few of the menu items.
Opposite the Seafood Shack, the other side of the Tides Bar, Pizzeria del Capitano offers 5 pizza varieties and some sheltered seating. From here you can enter the Lido Marketplace, Panorama’s buffet restaurant. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served here and you’ll find typical items like a carving station, hot food, and salad and dessert bars.
On the main pool deck, Guy’s Burgers serves up juicy favorites to grab and go. You can customize your burger at the toppings bar and choose from a variety of sauces too. Opposite Guy’s, Blue Iguana offers burritos, tacos and a killer salsa bar. The best kept secret though is that they serve breakfast here. Huevos Rancheros and breakfast burritos made to order are a Panorama fave.
Just off the beach pool, you’ll find the Red Frog rum bar on one side, and Blue Iguana cantina on the other. Watch for those specials and get to know the bartenders here. They are awesome!
Carnival Panorama Deck 11
Deck 11, just upstairs from the buffet holds two specialty upcharge restaurants. The first is Cucina del Capitano for classic Italian fare and reasonable prices. We loved the Nonna’s Meatball, shrimp pappardelle and for dessert, the apple crostata, but everything was excellent.
Next is JiJi Asian Kitchen which serves a variety of dishes from across Asia. Some of our favorites were the potstickers to start, Hakka-style noodles for an entree, and rose creme brûlée for dessert. You won’t leave hungry.
Don’t miss Cucina and JiJi on your cruise as they are well worth the surcharge.
Oh, and a tip for you, both Cucina and JiJi serve complimentary lunch at both venues. The menu is limited, but it’s a great place to mix it up a bit if you get tired of the buffet.
Carnival Panorama Deck 12
Up on Deck 12, you’ll find the sports square. This spot kept us busy for hours and works really well on both sea days and port days. The Clubhouse is an indoor, air conditioned space that offers foosball, ping pong, and our favorite, life sized billiards, called Sky Billiards. We love it here, and the AC is welcome on warm port days in Mexico. Once you’ve cooled off, head outside for a game of pool or mini golf, and enjoy the gorgeous views.
There’s also an enclosed basketball court which was popular on our cruises, as well as some outdoor exercise machines which didn’t get much use, but were pretty cool.
Now for the fun stuff, Carnival Waterworks. First up, the waterslides! Red Fun and Blue Fun offer two different experiences with Red Fun being a raft slide. Here’s a look at the height and weight requirements.
Moving forward, we’ll take a look at the Cloud 9 spa and thermal suite. You can buy passes to the thermal suite, or book a Cloud 9 spa cabin which includes week-long access to this area, among other perks. The fitness center is attached to the spa area, and has group fitness classes, cardio equipment, with a view, a good selection of weight machines and free weights. You can work out here for free, but classes will cost extra.
Carnival Panorama Deck 14
For an outdoor workout, head up to SkyRide and the Ropes Course. You can race your cruising companion around this thrilling course, and the views are spectacular. The Ropes Course is challenging and a great adrenaline rush in a few places, but you can take your time and complete the course at your own pace. As you’ll see in the video, the views up here are unbeatable and we love that these activities are complimentary on Panorama.
Carnival Panorama Deck 15
The Serenity adults only retreat on Panorama is large, and spans both sides of the ship forward on Deck 15. There’s lots of cozy seating, including shaded clamshells for sunbathing or a nap. There are hot tubs on both sides of the Serenity area, as well as a dedicated bar, with a special drink menu. There’s also a salad bar available during limited hours.
Enjoy your Carnival cruise, and until next time, we’ll see you on the high seas.
