Carnival Glory for Families
The 4,000-plus-square-foot Camp Carnival has daily activities for passengers aged 2 to 11. The 2- to 5-year-olds can finger paint and create sand art pictures. There are designated times for parental participation. Same goes for the 6- to 8-year-old group, which participates in similar activities geared to their particular demographic (scavenger hunts, crafts); 9- to 12-year-olds have their own club, group dinners, talent shows and family events.
Glory's Camp Carnival facility, beyond its multiplex of flat-screen TV's, computer center and PlayStation 2 area, also has an outdoor wading pool and jungle gym.
Scheduled activities generally run until 10 p.m., after which Night Owl parties -- late-night group baby-sitting with a more fun name -- are available for $6.75 per hour, per kid (plus 15 percent gratuity per child). There are also the occasional theme parties (Beach, Mardi Gras), which run from 10 p.m. to midnight and cost $13 per child (plus 15 percent gratuity).
Club 02, the facility for 15-to-17 year-olds, includes a dance floor, video wall, lounge, soft-drink bar and state-of-the-art video games.
The 12- to 14-year-old "tween" set also have their own dedicated space, Circle C, with video games, a touch-screen jukebox and plasma TV's.
Fountain Fun Cards, which are good for unlimited soft drinks, are available.
