Default Is there a charge for the youth activities on Carnival?

Maybe this is a dumb question, but I can't tell from the Carnival web site if there is a charge for the "Camp Carnival" activities for teh 2-11 year olds.

Planning our 2nd cruise - first one with the kids! Ages 3 and 8.

Thanks.

Camp Carnival is free. My only Camp Carnival experience was when my now 20 year old was 12. She loved it! Said it was better than Disney World! Didn't cost a dime. At least what she did didn't cost anything. I guess like anything else these days, there may be a charge for "premium" services.

If you use Camp Carnival, you should tip the staff.

9AM - 10PM is free.

10PM - 3AM is $6 an hour for the first child and $4 an hour for additional children

You will get a CAPER listing the times, locations and activities for the ENTIRE cruise for their age groups.

They do LOTS of FREE crafty things (coloring tshirts etc)

The only craft thing I am aware of that costs extra is Build a Bear.

Relax and know your little ones are receiving excellent care!!!!
