Carnival Legend for Families

Editor Rating
Families
5.0

Camp Carnival is centred on a 2,400-square-foot (223-square-metre) enclosed play area on Deck 5, away from adult activities. It serves as headquarters to a supervised program, divided by age groups, offering children's activities for ages 2 to 11 with a 'bottom of the sea' theme. Three areas are connected by tunnels: one area for crafts, a second one for computer games and a third one for games. A video wall displays movies and cartoons. An outdoor play area offers mini-basketball, jungle gyms and other playground equipment. The top deck SplashZone is also suitable for children in this age group.

One deck below is Circle 'C', designed for children from 12 to 14, complete with an attached video game room, which also offers virtual-reality games. Other activities on offer are movies, swim games, sports, scavenger hunts and organised dance parties.

Teens from 15 to 17 have their own hangout space, Club O2, on Deck 10. Complete with a nonalcoholic drinks bar, a dance floor, lazy lounge area and the latest video games, it's the place for teens to have fun and meet new friends.

The Night Owl program offers group child-minding and activities for those aged 12 months to 11 years. It's on every night from 10 p.m. until 1 a.m.; late-night munchies and games are on offer, with an extra fee of $8 per hour, per child.

New for Australian cruise kids (and their parents) are the 'Seuss at Sea' program and 'Hasbro, the Game Show'. Dr. Seuss characters, including Cat in the Hat and Red Fish and Blue Fish, will entertain kids at special character parades and during interactive story times. They will also appear at one breakfast during the cruise (usually the first full day at sea), where a special menu of Dr. Seuss foods like green eggs and ham will be served to the little ones.

While 'Hasbro, the Game Show' (based on a TV show called Family Game Night) is not known to your average Australian, it will likely be a hit with families and people who like to participate on stage. The cruise version is a contest between teams to play various board games (think Monopoly, Operation and a basketball challenge called Connect 4 Basketball). Loud and competitive, it will certainly appeal to kids, even if they've never played the board games or seen the TV show.
