Carnival Cruise Lines Camp Carnival Program "Cruising With Kids"

Carnival is a cruise line where travelers jump on board to have a good time—and we’re not just talking about the adults here. With Camp Carnival, children of all ages have a special place on the high seas to both celebrate their vacation time and exercise those energetic free spirits!

Some parents might be a bit apprehensive to leave their children alone, but with a staff of wonderful youth counselors—who are as friendly as they are experienced—parents can leave their children in full confidence. And, hey, parents might even be able to sneak off for a private lil’ poolside drink. Parents will get a break (now, not that we’re saying parents would EVER want a break from their kiddies) and the young ones will be able to strut their stuff in style (Fact of life: parents just aren’t cool enough—especially on vacations).

Here’s a bit more about the fantastic Kids Carnival Camp:

It’s everything they love about summer camp and their favorite babysitter, all in one! Camp Carnival offers tons of activities designed for children in three different age groups: 2 to 5 years, 6 to 8 years, and 9 to 11 years. Our counselors, each with education or childcare experience, are on the clock making sure everyone in the small groups of kids are having fun. When it’s mealtime, kids get their own menus, with faves like mac & cheese, chicken nuggets, and more. And when the sun goes down, we offer Camp Carnival Night Owls (fees apply) so kids get to stay up late having fun, while their parents also enjoy themselves well into the night. []

So book your ticket today and, if you have little ones, don’t be afraid to send them off. They’ll have a great time in their small groups. But if you’re the type of parents who want to spend time with their kiddos as much as possible–which makes sense since you’re on a family vacation!–just set some boundaries: A bit of time at the camp for activities (especially during Sea Days) and set mealtime meet ups, for example. The great thing about cruising is its flexibility—each family will be able to construct their own personalized vacation.

Have you been cruising with children? If so, tell us how they liked hanging out with other kids their age—and how you felt about letting them run off by themselves!

Also did you know Carnival Cruise Lines offers a 110% guarantee that you’ll love cruising with them.  Check out all the details [CLICK HERE]

    That’s great that Carnival offers this. With all the trouble on cruise ships the past few years, though, I’ll stick with Disney :)

    Never been on a cruise, but I always wanted to. Still waiting on my husband giving me one as a present (maybe for Christmas haha)

    I’d like to get the WHOLE family together to do a cruise. i think that would be fun.

    I think our best vacations were when we all went on a cruise. In the end they are very affordable to do. My kids enjoyed them a lot! They were older so we didn’t need to use the childcare services but the children looked like they were all having so much fun.

    I am big time into cruises. We usually go at least once a year…. we didn’t go this year because my Hubs had surgery… but I am sure we will be going next year.

    What a great addition to a cruise. Definitely makes it way more family friendly than before. I would love to have some break time while on vacation without having to worry so much.

    I guess if my kids were little I’d want to go on a cruise with them but since they are not, I don’t want to be trapped on a boat out to sea with hundreds or thousands of kids. LOL
    But nice that they have cruises like this.

    Cruises…oh how I wish I could go on one of those, but I have to wait patiently at least till my little one is a bit older.

    I have always wanted to take a cruise and one day I will. The kids area looks great! I don’t think I would have a problem leaving my daughter there and let her be entertained while I relaxed.

    We’re planning a Disney cruise but this sounds like a much cheaper alternative. Will have to get hubby to take a look at this as well. Thanks for sharing.

    I have only been on one cruise to Alaska and I loved it. I have a lot of friends who have taken their kids and they have said they have such a good time. I have heard a lot of good things about Carnival Cruises.

    This is the second Carnival Cruise mention to me in three hours. I’m thinking it’s a sign. Especially with the all the stuff for kids available.

    My little ones would love that but they are still a little too young for a cruise. Can’t wait til they are old enough though.

    Yes, it’s amazing and my children had a blast! We will be returning soon.
