Carnival Cruise Lines has introduced a new children's dining program that provides kids with delicious supervised meals with their fellow young cruisers in the ships' casual poolside restaurants while parents enjoy a night to themselves.
The new children's dinners - the latest component of the line's complimentary "Camp Carnival" program - are available fleetwide and take place in the ships' Lido Deck eateries, the "Seaview Bistros." Dinners take place from 6-7 p.m. after which children are welcome to partake in regularly scheduled "Camp Carnival" activities until 10 p.m.
The children's dinners are available nightly on three- and four-day voyages except for the first night of the cruise. On voyages of five days or longer, the dinners are available nightly except for the first and last night of the cruise.
A different menu is featured each night and includes items such as spaghetti with meatballs, chicken quesadillas, hamburgers, hot dogs, roasted chicken drumsticks, pepperoni pizza, fish sticks, chicken nuggets, roasted turkey, and grilled salmon steak. Popular side dishes include French fries, corn on the cob, mashed potatoes and macaroni and cheese. A 35-item salad bar is also available. Desserts include assorted ice cream and seasonal fresh fruit.
Other popular dining options for children sailing aboard the "Fun Ships" include 24-hour pizzerias, a grille serving hot dogs and hamburgers and 24-hour ice cream/frozen yogurt stations. Children's menus are available in all main dining rooms. A special children's turn-down service offering freshly baked chocolate chip cookies on the first and last night of the cruise, and the "Fountain Fun Card," which, for a one-time fee, provides unlimited soft drinks throughout the cruise, are also available.
The new children's dinners complement the wide variety of fun morning-til-night activities included in the line's popular "Camp Carnival" program, featured on all 19 "Fun Ship," which are expected to host some 400,000 children this year.
"Camp Carnival" activities are geared toward children ages 2-15, who enjoy such amenities as indoor and outdoor play areas, computer labs, arts and crafts centers, video game rooms, a new EduCruise science/geography program and more.
