Everything You Need to Know About Cruising Carnival With Kids

What’s for breakfast? Green eggs and ham, of course! You know your kids are in for a colourful treat when a cruise company offers events like the Green Eggs and Ham breakfast with The Cat in the Hat and Friends.

Carnival Cruise Lines goes overboard in delivering the whole Dr Seuss at Sea experience which, as well as the breakfast, includes on-board character parades, interactive story time, plus arts and crafts activities.

The company’s two Australian-based ships – Legend and Spirit – are arguably the best places at sea to abandon your children. To be truthful, your children will probably abandon you, or at least knock you over in the rush, to get to the kids’ club.

Carnival’s kids’ club programs cater for all ages with youngsters from 2-11 in either Camp Carnival or Camp Ocean; 12-14 year-olds get to hang out in Circle “C”; and the older teenagers have Club O2 to themselves.

This age-based segregation means children are safe with like-minded explorers as they discover a treasure trove of on-board fun.

The Carnival Ships are famous for their water parks – and in particular the Green Thunder water slide. The ride takes just 6.5 seconds and you are travelling at about 65km per hour as you hurtle downwards screaming your lungs out. There are serious bragging rights to be had for kids willing to take the plunge, but if your courage doesn’t extend to Green Thunder, then you can try the slightly gentler options in the WaterWorks splash park.

For the budding Jordan Speiths and Stephen Currys of this world, Carnival also boasts a nine-hole mini-golf course and a basketball court. It’s not all fun though, most days there are organised competitions and the action gets pretty hectic and serious.

If you get too hot, you can make a splash in one of the two pools available to children or grab a delicious soft serve ice-cream at the poolside vending machine which operates 24-hours a day.

After all this sporting action the kids can hit the pizza parlour, create their own pizzas, and flame their own MasterChef ambitions. The kids get to decide what cheese goes on the pizza and what toppings they want to create a gastronomic masterpiece. It’s fun and it’s a kid’s only event – so no parents can force the kids to pick unwanted, healthy choices.

At Hasbro, The Game Show, lucky kids are invited on stage in front of a crowd to play giant oversized games of Simon, Yahtzee, Connect 4 and Operation for the chance to win great prizes. If your kids liked “The Voice Kids”, then they will love taking the karaoke stage to perform live with the house band. Singing live with the band takes karaoke to the next level and causes a few hearts to miss a beat.

Did we mention the video arcade, the dive-in poolside movies, the towel animal workshops and the Cherry on Top sweetie shop? Your children will probably need at least a week to explore everything on offer on Carnival’s Fun Ships.
