Default Has anybody cruised on the Spirit with a toddler?

Hello!
We just booked a cruise on the Spirit for October. I'm a little nervous because they don't have pictures of Camp Carnival on their web site for the Spirit. Has anybody seen it? Did you like it? What didn't you like about it? What about the staff -- did you like them? Were they good?

We went on a cruise on the Glory in February and had a marvelous time.
We will be flying across the country too (her first time)...I'm praying that goes well. Our DD does travel well, so I know that worrying for nothing. I would gladly appreciate any and all tips!

Thank you so much!
Cathy

How old is your toddler? I assume she's over 2 years old to participate in the youth program? Carnival's counselors are usually upbeat and friendly. Since the Spirit is a newer ship, the youth facilities should be large and well equipped.

Smooth sailing,

We sailed the Spirit with our two kids, ages then 6 and 3. Both of them LOVED Camp Carnival!

We had to drag them out of there when the camp closed. They couldn't wait to go every morning either, breakfast was TORTURE!!!

We loved the staff, you could tell they loved their jobs. I'm sure by now they have rotated to another ship but I wouldn't hesitate to put them back in Camp again.

This was our family's first experience with a day care type setting since I was then a SAHM. I never thought twice about the kids spending their sea days there. It was a nice feeling knowing they were well supervised and were having a great time!
