  • Stingrays – ages 6-8

The Carnival Freedom and Carnival’s yet to debut Carnival Vista will have a layout designed specifically for this program with a Party Reef shared space and Creative Cove room for crafts.

Camp Ocean will roll out over the next two years with the Carnival Breeze, Carnival Triumph and Carnival Magic all debuting the new program this year.

This new program also introduces a new feature called the Badge Challenge. This is a program where kids in the different age groups get badges for experiencing the ship, making a towel animals, going down the water slide or trying something new at dinner. Each cruise will culminate in a ceremony where each group has an awards ceremony.

Carnival and most of the other major cruise lines have separate programs for the teens. The activities for teens include dance nights, Karaoke, sports competitions and late night movies. Usually the teens even have their own area where they can play video games and hang out. I’d love to answer your specific questions about this and help you find a cruise.
