She should enjoy Camp Carnival. Also, Glory has a DYNAMITE slide and even BETTER arcade. You'll have to put her on a budget at the arcade, it ain't free!!!

Is there a teen program onboard?

Carnival offers two different teen programs. For our 12-14 year old guests, Camp Carnival offers a wide range of activities from late night movies, sports night, teen disco, Karaoke, late night swimming under the stars, scavenger hunts, and many other age appropriate activities.

15 - 17 year olds have a place all their own as well, it's called Club 0 2. This program, like Camp Carnival, was created for these older teens it was designed and dedicated to our guests in the specific age groups. The older teens get a chance to show off during a Karaoke session, pool parties, late night dances, outdoor sporting events like basketball and ping pong.

Many of our ships feature lounges which are dedicated to both age groups. Some of these lounges feature video monitors with Playstation 2 or X-Boxes, as well as comfortable seating. High energy dance floors with state of the art lighting and sound have also become a mainstay in many of our "Teen Only" lounges.

Due to these programs onboard, it is Carnival's policy to restrict anyone under the age of 18 years old into the main disco after 11 PM. Casino guests must be 18 years of age to play the tables and the slot machines. Guests under the age of 18 are not permitted in the casino. Guests under the age of 16 are not permitted in the spa and gym. Guests between the ages of 16 and 18 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

tshirt decorating
swimming pool time as a group
build-a-bear (this cost extra, around $25)
movie night
late-late slumber party (10pm-3:30 am on one night - $26 extra charge)
ice cream sundae making
basketball
various scavenger hunts all over the ship (kids in pairs without supervision, so you may or may not want her in on that)
attend the show together as a group in the lounge (family show of course!)
computer game time

Almost forgot, don't let her miss the chocolate buffet usually held last sea-day in lido buffet at lunch. I think the capers calls it somethin like international chocolate extravaganza. There's a couple pictures here:

Also, check your daily "Carnival Capers" for the ice carving demo and also the towel animal demo. Both of those were big hits with my 10yr old. There is a towel animal book that shows how to make 40 different animals for sale in the gift shop for $12.95. He brought that home and has had great fun with it.
Another item that was a big hit was the carved coconut monkey drink holder. It's carved out inside to hold a plastic cup and has a straw hole in the top (as well as a coin slot to use it as a bank later). The bar had those for sale one day and several kids carried them around the entire cruise to hold their soda cups.
