Default camp carnival

my family is looking into taking a cruise together. when i went to carnival's website, there wasn't a lot of info reguarding camp carnival. i am interested in the times that the children are there, are parents welcomed to join the activities, and how do they handle the children if the parents are on shore and the child makes a fuss for the parent.

i would love to get some feed-back on any experience with camp carnival.

please email me at mzhibbs@yahoo.com

Hi Mindy,
Here is some information on Camp Carnival:

Ships: Carnival Destiny, Carnival Spirit, Carnival Triumph, Carnival Victory, Celebration, Ecstasy, Elation, Fantasy, Fascination, Holiday, Imagination, Inspiration, Jubilee, Paradise, Sensation

Destinations: Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexico, Panama Canal, Alaska, and Hawaii

Groups: Toddlers 2-5; Intermediate 6-8; Juniors 9-12; Teens 13-15.

Counselors: 7 to 9 per ship, depending on the season and size of ship.

Hours: 9:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. year-round. Activities also on port days are free of charge.

Cool Teen Stuff: Alaska cruises feature teens-only shore excursions. All ships have video/electronic arcades

Parent Savers: This is one of the few cruise lines where youth counselors do change little ones' diapers. Group babysitting available from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m.; $5 per hour first child; $3/hour each additional child in the same family. Note that children under two years old can participate in group babysitting (cribs are set up in the youth room). In-cabin cribs available upon request.

Not available: Strollers

Kids' Shore Excursions: Teens-only shore excursions in Alaska are accompanied by a youth counselor and tour escort.

Rates: Special third and fourth passenger rates.

Noteworthy Features: Very spacious family cabins on most ships, many of which can hold up to five passengers. Water slides and wading pools for younger children on some ships. Parents can purchase a card for unlimited kids' fountain drinks during the cruise. The cost is based on length of cruise. While ships do not have dedicated teen rooms, all have video/electronic game rooms. Carnival Destiny, Spirit, Triumph and Victory have largest dedicated children's facilities.

Wow! Factor: All ships have a main pool with trademark Carnival 214-foot waterslide. Many fun family activities are offered throughout the cruise, such as Name that Tune, family craft night, and family deck games

Have a great time!

We went on Jubilee one year ago & have 2 girls, ages 11 & 14. They absolutely loved it. Both could come & go as they pleased (younger had to be signed in & out by parents). Walkie-talkies worked extremely well on the ship so we always knew where they were. They seemed very organized for all different age groups. the 14 year old found friends & mainly hung out on their own. 11 year old did some things in camp carnival & some not. The talent show was very good with kids of all ages participating. We saw the parade of little kids go around the boat several times, they looked to be having a great time.
