Default Kid's Club at 22 mths

Knowing that Carnival is really strict with their Kid's club age, I don't expect my lil' guy to get in at 22 months. However, can I bring him into the play area and let him play if I am supervising him? Are there any restrictions, or is it totally off-limits to the under-3 crowd?

Thanks in advance!

Sylvia

Oops... made a little mistake. What I meant was... Can I bring my just-under-2 year old into the Kid's club while I supervise him, or is it only for 2+ year olds, even with parent supervision.

Thanks!

Each day Carnival offers about two hours of free play where parents of under 2s can take their children into the play area and supervise them at play. Also nighttime babysitting is offered from 10 pm to 3 am and on port days from the time of the first excursion until I believe 2.

We have used all of the above on our daughter's first 3 cruises.

The baby sitting is for a fee.

When we were on the Carnival Pride last September, they would not allow parents into the kid's club area at any time. It caused alot of problems because my 2 year old niece was afraid to go in alone and, therefore, was never able to participate in kid's club activities. If her mother could have accompanied her into the room for just a few minutes, I'm sure she would have seen all the toys and been fine. She even asked if she could bring her during a time when the kid's club was closed just to get her used to the surroundings and they said there was never a time when parents were allowed in. They cited safety reasons.

They never waivered from this answer until the last day (tip day) when my sister came to drop off her older child. She was met at the door by the kid's club supervisor (the same one who had repeatedly told her that parents were NEVER allowed in) and invited in to help the 2 year old paint a t-shirt. The personality change was amazing! On previous visits she would do nothing to try and win this stranger-shy child over, but on tip day she was all smiles and going out of her way to try and get my niece to come to her. The whole act was so transparent that my sister ended up NOT giving her the tip she had intended on giving on behalf of her older child.

I think the truth is that they didn't want to deal with the diapers and that they may have been more accommodating had she been potty-trained.

They do not allow parents in the room EXCEPT for the freeplay with children under two who are not allowed in during regular hours. The only reason they can go in then is because there are no other kids except those supervised by their parents. I still have my programs and it is usually from noon to 2 pm when the camp is closed.

Also, we never had an issue with the diapers because they do babysitting for children 4 months to 23 months so they change diapers. My daughter has done 6 cruises (she is 4) and the only time we have had a problem was when she just turned two before the Sensation cruise.
