Carnival Cruise Lines kids play in the Ocean

Carnival Cruise Lines is adding to its young cruisers’ experiences on Carnival Spirit, with a new marine-themed kids club.

 

Setting the ship apart from its sister vessel Carnival Legend, which offers ‘Green Eggs and Ham‘ as part of the Dr Seuss experience, Carnival will replace Camp Carnival aboard the Spirit with Camp Ocean – a new larger kids’ club area splashed out with bright blue ocean hues.

The childrens’ space will be added during refurbishments in August, which will also see the addition of a burger bar, Mexican restaurant – BlueIguana Cantina and an interactive EA Sports Bar.

Children will enjoy marine-themed activities in all areas of Camp Ocean.

Camp Ocean gives little cruisers the chance to immerse themselves in all the fun of the big blue sea, with more than 200 educational and engaging ocean-themed activities such as sea salt art, sea shell craft, ocean bingo, and make-your-own sail boats.

Designed for children aged 2-11, Camp Ocean will feature three age-related areas including a new Penguin colony for two to five-year-olds and a Sting Ray camp for six to eight-year-olds, while nine to 11-year-olds will be able to sink their teeth into their new Shark enclosure.

Each area will have its own special features ranging from miniature play igloos for the smallest cruisers to interactive gaming stations for the biggest.

Carnival Cruise Lines vice president Australia and New Zealand Jennifer Vandekreeke said Camp Ocean was a great fit for Australian children who had a natural fascination and affinity with the ocean.

“We can’t wait to introduce Camp Ocean to our Australian ship and watch our youngest cruisers dive in to the wonderful world under the sea.”

Camp Ocean was devised by a panel of experts including specialists in children’s engagement, toys, game play and even a mother of two who cruises frequently. The program is being rolled out across Carnival’s worldwide fleet.
