Default Just Returned from Family Cruise with 3 Grandchildren!

Sailed on the Carnival Pride to the Mexican Riveria with large family group, including my three grandchildren, ages 1, 2, and 3. We ate most evening meals in the dining room at early seating, and took turns taking the one year old out when he became restless.

Camp Carnival did not work out too well, as the 2 and 3 year old did not want to stay by themselves, even though they go to preschool a couple of mornings a week at home. They did attend a few activities however, and had a good time. I think toddlers need to have a very out going personality to be able to adapt to a new 'care' setting, while at the same time adapting to a new home away from home.

If you have any questions about the Carnival Pride, the ports, or activities on the ship, I would be happy to try and answer.

Have you played CruiseMates Cruise Trivia Today?

Those are wise words for parents to really know their children's personalities before "assuming" they are going to "love Camp Carnival" at that young an age.

(especially when traveling and being in a strange place can get them off their routine to begin with)

If it is Carnival and it floats....we have sailed it!

Hubby ... DIAMOND (every ship except the Carnivale)
Me ... DIAMOND (every ship starting with the Tropicale)
20 year old son ... DIAMOND (every ship starting with the Tropicale...he is the only DOUBLE Milestone under the age of 21)
24 year old son ... DIAMOND
