Carnival Family Cruises

Carnival Cruise Lines is the world's most popular cruise line, be it with families or otherwise, and it's easy to see why. Let's start with selection: all told, cruisers have 24 different vessels and 60 different destinations to choose from. Add to that well over a dozen unique eateries and almost as many one-of-a-kind lounges and bars, "dive-in" movies both day and night at Carnival's Seaside Theatre (where the popcorn's always free), and one of the world's largest shipboard spas (Cloud 9, available aboard select "Fun Ships?" including Carnival Breeze, Carnival Dream, and Carnival Sunshine), and it's clear that a Carnival cruise offers something for passengers of all ages and all tastes.

There are three important factors (beyond budget, destination, and travel dates) for families to evaluate when considering a Carnival cruise: activities designed expressly for children, options reserved exclusively for adults, and mealtimes for the whole crew. Below, you'll find an overview of all three.

  • All activities are supervised by Carnival's dedicated Youth Staff (professional counselors with backgrounds in childcare and/or education)

  • Special program allows teens to go on one shore excursion as a group during their voyage; excursions are chaperoned by Directors (no parents, but parental consent is required)
    Club O2 sm
  • An exclusive program for teens (ages 15 - 17); each ship's club features a unique design and unique offerings, including sporting events and theme parties

  • Flexible "Your Time Dining" (or "Signature Dining") option allows passengers to forego traditional assigned seating in main dining rooms
