Default Camp Carnival


Posted a message earlier tonight but didn't see if come up so am trying again!

Can someone tell me the current age groups for Camp Carnival. I have seen conflicting information on various sites. We have a 5 1/2 year old girl and a 8 1/2 year old boy cruising on the Carnival Legend on March 4th, 2004. I would prefer they aren't in the same group.

Any other kids cruising on the Legend March 4th, 2004

Does anyone know how stringent they are on these years? We are taking 4 boys. Two are 8 years one is nine and the other is 10..they all play together here in the neighborhood..and we were hoping to keep them together..

they are very strict with the age. we had to show them our 2 yo birth certificate to prove that she was indeed 24 months and not 23. I have heard (not sure if its true) that you need to speak to someone (cruise director??) and ask him if he will accomodate your request.

We took our boys last year on the Paradise...they were in different age groups (one was 8, the other 12)...they allowed the older one to go with the younger group, but not vice versa.

Have fun...keep on mind that the pools on the Carnival ships are salt water, we were glad we took goggles/masks for the boys. May I also suggest taking your own ping pong balls if your boys like to play (there were never enough or any around to be found)...we also took our our walkie talkies so the boys could explore w/out us, but we could keep track of where they were....worked out great.

We are trying Princess this March, we hope we had as much fun as we did on the Paradise!

Have fun!

Most cruise lines are pretty stringent about kids only going into the age group that they are technically in. I've asked some youth counselors your same question, and they rarely will let a younger kid move up to an older age group. Once in a while they will let an older one go to the younger group, as long as they're not disruptive.
Bottom line: You can ask when you get on board and maybe they'll accommodate you, but don't book the cruise assuming that will indeed be the case!

Great idea about the ping pong balls. Noticed that there were never any around but never thought to bring my own. Thanks. Also bring plenty of pairs of water wings. If they get lost or broken there is nowhere to buy them. ( We lost pair over the balcony while my SIL was shaking out towels.) I'll definitely bring goggles as well.

Last year we went on the Holiday and my daughter, who was 11 1/2 years old at the time, was allowed to participate in the teen group. Talk to the group counselor and explain the situation.

Just returned from the Spirit and they were not strict due to the numbers of children traveling...there were a small amount in each group...I think it depends on the Camp director and number of children traveling on a given cruise.
