Carnival Cruise Line, which carries more than 800,000 kids a year, has completed the fleetwide rollout of Camp Ocean with its marine-themed play areas and activities for children 2 to 11.

Camp Ocean is now aboard all 26 Fun Ships.

The colorful, ocean-inspired facilities are designed to provide a variety of fun and engaging experiences, with 400 activities that range from educational games such as Marine Life Trivia and Ocean Bingo to crafts such as Fork Print Puffer Fish and Shark Art and active games like Crab Soccer.

 Activities for three age groups

Camp Ocean welcomes youngsters with light blue and white underwater colored spaces and friendly, experienced staff who oversee activities for kids in three age groups—Penguins (2-5), Sting Rays (6-8) and Sharks (9-11).

Common areas such as a play zone, Party Reef, and Creative Cove, a breakout room for arts and crafts activities, are available on select ships.

Plus separate programs for teens

Carnival vessels also offer facilities and activities for kids 12 to 14 via the Circle 'C' program and for 15- to 17-year-olds with Club O2.

Other kid-friendly offerings include vast water parks; Seuss at Sea, an exclusive partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises; family-friendly shows at the Punchliner Comedy Club and all-ages activities like 'Hasbro, The Game Show' with larger-than-life adaptations of the company’s iconic games, Build-A-Bear Workshop at Sea, Towel Animal Theater featuring the line’s signature towel animals and Lip Sync Battle Carnival, based on the hit Paramount Network TV show.
