Has anyone OR does anyone know if Carnival crew members DO or OFFER in room babysitting?
Not in-room, but at Camp Carnival:
We are 7 adults taking our 8 cruise and 1st with our grandson 15 months old at the time of cruising. We are planning a jolly roger rum excursion through the ship, which is roughly 4+ hours long, and trying to find out if the ship offers in room babysitting as our grandson is NOT old enough to say or go to camp carnival.
