Carnival Cruise Line's Camp Carnival Kids Program

Carnival Cruise Line's Camp Carnival Kids Program

Families love Carnival vacations because they're just more fun.

If you love sharing adventures with your children, you should take a "Fun Ship" cruise. Because no family vacation in the world is more carefree, more fun for everyone, or a greater vacation value.

On a "Fun Ship" vacation, you don't have to worry about the endless expenses of an ordinary resort vacation because one low price includes virtually everything. In fact, it even covers the Camp Carnival program for kids ages 2 to 15. This is a fabulous benefit to parents. Because while you enjoy grownup pleasures, you can relax knowing your children are enjoying an incredible choice of exciting activities in the care of highly trained fun-loving counselors.

The Camp Carnival Program pleases everyone

Carnival Kid's Programs Carnival's super-popular year-round program includes a wide range of activities designed for four different age groups. All are supervised by counselors who are college-educated in a related field, have professional childcare experience, or both. As soon as your kids visit Camp Carnival, they'll meet a counselor assigned to their age group. While activities take place throughout the ship, smaller children enjoy many of their fun events in the Camp Carnival headquarters, where there are games, computers, arts & crafts and even an outdoor wading pool.

Your kids will have a ball

During the cruise, your kids will have tons of fun exploring, playing and learning. They'll enjoy all kinds of games, parties, talent shows, fun food events, arts, crafts, contests, movies and a whole lot more - all under the friendly and competent supervision of certified Camp Carnival counselors. And they'll make lots of new friends.

You teens will have a blast

Because Camp Carnival makes sure teens have lots of social events with kids their own ages, like dances, talent contests and sports tournaments. In addition, special group shore excursions let them explore exciting destinations with their newfound friends. For still more fun, every ship has a video arcade with lots of virtual reality games, and many ships feature special club-like settings created just for teenage guests.

You'll have a relaxing time by yourself

A Carnival cruise is a vacation where you can indulge yourself in endless grownup pleasures, including sunning on deck, superb dining and duty-free shopping. Your floating resort also has a friend casino, the Spa Carnival Fitness Center and salon, a choice of lounges with live entertainment and the pampering service for which Carnival is famous.

Special babysitting services

For the convenience of their guests Camp Carnival offers evening babysitting services allowing parents time to enjoy fun-filled nightlife without having to worry about their little ones.

Babysitting service is available every evening from 10:00pm to 3:00am in the children's playroom, for children from 4 months to 11 years of age. In port, group daytime babysitting is available for infants two and under, from port arrival until noon, for a fee.

In order to take advantage of this great service, parents must sign up in advance with the Youth Staff. The cost for this service is $6 per hour for the first child and $4 per hour for each additional child in the same immediate family. Payment must be made with your onboard account and is due upon pick-up.

All babysitting is done in a "slumber party" atmosphere, where kids can enjoy watching movies and cartoons. Pillows, blankets and cribs will be provided. However, any toiletries or diapers must be provided by parents.

Stroller Rentals

Carnival is always looking for ways to make their guests' cruises more enjoyable, and have now eliminated the need to bring a stroller by providing stroller rentals fleet wide, for a nominal fee.

Kids Menus

Children also get their very own menus, featuring all their favorite foods. Hot dogs, chicken nuggets, pizza, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are all available on a Carnival cruise; so even Carnival's pint-size guests can feel pampered on their "Fun Ship" family vacation. On some nights, your kids can even eat with the other kids, leaving you to enjoy a quiet evening on your own.

Fun Ship Fountain Cards - Soda Program

Kids can enjoy unlimited soft drinks and juices for your entire cruise for one low price. Kids can have all the sodas they can drink for only $12 per child for a three night cruise and $28 for a 7 night cruise. That's a lot of sugar, but a great value for your family vacation.
