Big Fun for Infants and Toddlers
Their first couple of years are so special. Wouldn’t it be great to make a Carnival® cruise one of their earliest experiences? Yup, even the under-twos aren’t too small to enjoy a cruise… and we’ve made it amazing with special activities created for them! These are unique, enriching experiences, but we pack them with fun, just like for the bigger kids. For this bunch — we call the little ones “Turtles™” — there’s arts and crafts, dancing, educational games, a storytime featuring Dr. Seuss® favorites, sensory play and more — always supervised by qualified childcare experts, and always just right for kids their age.
At certain times, Turtles can join in the fun the other kids are having at Camp Ocean®, and they’re definitely welcome at Night Owls™ too, so parents like you can enjoy a little relaxation time, day or night, knowing they’re in fun hands.
At Camp Ocean, 2–11 year-olds stay busy, keep active and have fun as they enjoy all new ocean-themed activities in supervised, age-based groups.
