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.
