Question Cost of Camp Carnival Question??

We have never cruised with our children (daughter will be 11 and twin boys will be 9).

What is the cost of the children programs aboard the ship? We will be on Carnival Liberty and was just trying to budget in all the "set" expenses.

Thank you.

I do not think that there would be any charge for the regular hours. Late night hours probably charge an hourly fee. On RCCL Kid club the late hours were 10:PM to 1AM at a charge of $5.00 per hour per child. My 11DD paid her own way a couple of times just so I would let her stay.

Carnival Camp is included as part of your cruise - only afterhours babysitting is extra. We were on the Inspiration 2 years ago and my DGD Loved the kid camp - in fact she didn't want to spend any time with us - wanted to be with the kids...

There is no charge for Camp Carnival, except for after 10 pm. The camp is generally open 9 - noon, 2 - 5 (or 6) and 7 - 10. After that, there is a minimal hourly fee until the wee hours of the morning.

On port days, the camp is open continously from when the ship docks until sailaway - no charge then either. There is usually a "coke-tail" party on formal nights, so theoretically you could send the children to the camp for dinner (we've never done this, so I can't elaborate.)

The camp is not open on the first (sail away) day. There is generally a short meeting when you sign your children up around 7-ish, and they offer the for-a-fee sitting after 10.

Usually, they have a kids talent show in the afternoon the last sea day, during which the camp is closed, and children must be accompanied at the show by a parent.

Hope this helps!

No charge for regular hours (till 10 pm). There is a per-hour charge from 10 pm to 3 am - $6.00/hour for first child, $4.00/hour for additional kids. There's also a "slumber party" available for a set fee a couple of times during the cruise - I think the party for our 9 YO was $28.00. Tips are not included in any of the Camp Carnival fees; we generally tip on the last night of the cruise. There is no recommended rate; I think it really depends on how much you use Camp Carnival and the service you receieve. My kids love it and used it often.

Thank you all for the info! I did find AFTER I posted this the fees but the additional info you each provided helps a bunch! I think our kids will love the program and will not want to stay with us either!
