We are booked on the Sensation for July. Are children 9 and up (4) gosh!!! allowed in all the areas of the boat (disco, casino, showroom). If so, are they allowed at all times or is there a cut off time when they have to leave?? Thanks, it's our first time on Carnival.
Recently returned from the Pride. My kids (12 & 14) had their own dance time in the Beauties disco for their age group (9:00-10:45pm). They enjoyed having the lighted dance floor to themselves (no kids 16 and over allowed until after 10:45) -- strictly enforced.
They were allowed to go into Butterflies lounge anytime to do Karaoke.
No problem attending shows in the main showroom -- except, of course, for R rated shows which were performed at midnight. My kids love all the shows. Wide variety -- Las Vegas reviews, magicians, comedians, jugglers, etc.
Usually you must pass through the casino to get from point A to point B so as long as the kids are not stopping to touch machines there are no problems. I don't think they can loiter at the gaming tables either.
There are so many activities and contests to participate in. They'll make friends and have a great time. Mine did.
