We had a great trip with our kids (ages 9 and 6).  They LOVED Camp Ocean- we had no intentions of putting them there, as this was a "family" vacation.  But, they begged to try it once they talked to over kids that had been there.  It was fantastic, just drop in here and there for a bit of time- great deal.


The movies at night were fun.  Maybe a bit much for little kids, with the PG-13, but we just took our kids out for those.


The shore excursions we books through Carnival, and they were smooth with no issues.  Fun times.


Negatives: long wait to get off the ship.  Do the "self assist" option, you'll get off faster.

Our waiter for the sit-down meal was super boring not personable at all.  He gave us a menu, handed us food, and that was it.   Other waiters seemed far more exciting (chatting, dancing, laughing, asking questions about where people are from and what they did for the day).  It was crumby with ours.


Cabin / Stateroom Jose was FANTASTIC! Room was always cleaned, cute towel animals, nice guy!
