Carnival Triumph for Families

Editor Rating
Families
5.0
Besides the family spa options mentioned above, there is ample opportunity for kids and parents to spend as much or as little time together as they want. Children's World is the centerpiece of the onboard experience -- a 1,300-square-foot play area with arts and crafts, sand art, educational computer games, and plenty of tumbling room. The super-friendly and cheerful staff members are certainly busy, but rest assured there is plenty of supervision. Camp Carnival is divided into four groups by age with age-appropriate activities for all from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. If you're looking to have some adult fun late into the evening, Camp Carnival also provides babysitting services from 10 p.m. until 3 a.m. for a fee of $6.75 per hour. One thing that makes Carnival stand out is that they do not require your child to be potty trained to participate.

In the daily Carnival Capers newsletter, there are many opportunities for kids to have fun onboard. Talent shows, slumber parties, scavenger hunts, towel-animal folding, temporary tattoos and dance-offs for teens are all part of the daily fun. And despite the questionable location of the arcade, Underground Tokyo, it is usually packed with teens and pre-teens day and night having a great time.

Though most kids will be thrilled with the 24-hour free ice cream and juice available, you can also purchase a "Bottomless Bubbles" card for $4.50 per day that gives passengers under 21 unlimited soft drinks. Depending on how much soda your child drinks, or is allowed to drink, you can check out this option and see if it works for your family. Adults can also purchase a card for $6 per day.
