We recently took a Carnival Cruise with our 2 year old and had the best time! We were worried about not having time to ourselves, or that Baby G would be bored. It was just the opposite! Camp Carnival was a complete ray of sunshine (even though the sun was lacking on the cruise)! Throughout the day, Baby G could go to camp and see other kids, do arts and crafts and give Momma and Daddy some much needed time together. Whether at sea or at port, you can drop your child off at camp for a day filled with friendly camp counselors, running around and just being a kid! At night, we would all go to dinner, Baby G would eat and then we would take her back to camp. Camp closed at 10pm, and then turned into hourly babysitting. The hourly rate was $6...you can't beat that! When our trip was over, we got to bring home memories from camp too! Baby G made some great handprints, princess crowns, edible necklaces (that kept her occupied while waiting at the airport), a Camp Carnival tote bag, a T-shirt that she colored herself and many pictures to remember the day that Camp turned her into a bunny, complete with face painting and bunny ears! I would truly recommend cruising on Carnival and checking out the camp! There are 3 age groups: 2-5 year olds, 6-8 year olds and 9-11 year olds.
