Carnival Cruise Lines
Where It Sails: Carnival Cruise sails domestically and internationally, including trips to Australia.
Child Care: If you and your partner want to enjoy a shore excursion, drop the kids off at Camp Carnival. For no additional cost, counselors provide a variety of entertaining and educational activities designed for children in three different age groups: 2 to 5 years old, 6 to 8 years old, and 9 to 11 years old. If you want some postsunset alone time, simply pay a small fee for the same care.
For Tiny Tots: Whether your child wants to slide down hundred-foot waterslides or play a few rounds of mini golf, there are plenty of fun things for them to do without leaving the ship. If your child loves Dr. Seuss, then they're in luck! Carnival recently launched Seuss at Sea, an on-board adventure that brings Seuss's beloved books to life with interactive story time, art activities, character breakfasts, and more. Though this is only a fixture on the Carnival Splendor, the company hopes to add it to the rest of its ships by mid-2015.
For Tweens and Teens: Older kids can take a break from their family at Club O2. Here, they can watch movies, play video games, enjoy pool parties, and more with fellow teens. For an additional cost, they can even participate in teen-only shore excursions.
