Kid's Areas

Camp Ocean

Carnival unveiled an exciting, new marine-themed children’s program in 2014.  The expanded program for children ages 2-11 highlights the wonders of the sea through fun, engaging and educational experiences.

More than 200 new ocean-inspired activities range from educational games such as Sea Creature Discovery, Marine Life Trivia, Under the Sea Mad Libs and Ocean Artifacts Memory Tray to creative arts opportunities such as Design Your Own Aquarium, Make Your Own Sailboat, Sea Salt Art, and Create a Penguin from Oreos.

Camp Ocean, will welcome youngsters in with light blue and white underwater colored spaces and friendly, experienced staff. Three age-related categories each have their own identity: children ages 2-5 are dubbed “Penguins,” with those ages 6-8 called “Sting Rays” while 9-11 year olds are “Sharks.”

Distinctive areas and activities have been custom-created for each of the new age designations – from miniature play igloos for the Penguins to interactive gaming stations for the Sharks.

Camp Ocean (ages 2-11)

Camp Ocean features games, finger painting, story time, movies and more all in a supervised environment, while their parents can be off having fun of their own. The fun doesn't end at bed time, either; Carnival's babysitting program offers, for a fee, a fun late-night option for kids while their parents stay out until as late as 3 A.M. 

Circle C (ages 12-14)

Video games, scavenger hunts, dance parties, sports, pool parties and special shore excursions.

Club O2 (ages 15-17)

Teens can enjoy the latest music with exclusive dance parties, video gaming and movies from the club's comfy seating, with video monitors all over the place. Outside of the club, activities include pool parties, team sports and special teen-only shore excursions.
