With the summer travel season in full swing, Carnival Cruise Lines has enhanced its family friendly offerings with the introduction of the new Dr. Seuss Bookville family reading venue and Camp Ocean marine-themed children’s program on Carnival Freedom.
Recently debuting on Carnival Freedom following a multi-million-dollar makeover, Dr. Seuss Bookville and Camp Ocean features more than 200 new ocean-inspired activities as part of a fleet-wide rollout of new children’s programming designed to build upon Carnival’s position as the family cruise leader. Carnival hosts more than 700,000 kids a year — the most of any cruise operator and roughly double what the line carried a decade ago.
“Families are an important market to us and with these new family friendly enhancements, combined with highly attractive summer rates, we’re making cruising on Carnival an even greater value while providing kids and their parents an opportunity to create a lifetime of vacation memories together,” said Gerry Cahill, Carnival president and CEO. “Seuss at Sea and Camp Ocean are not only wonderful additions to our top-rated children’s programs but also provide our valued travel agent partners with a highly effective tool for attracting more families to the ‘Fun Ships.’”
Part of an exclusive agreement with Dr. Seuss Enterprises, Bookville features iconic décor, colours, shapes and funky furniture inspired by the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss. Here, kids and their families can read beloved Dr. Seuss books or stretch their imagination through fun activities such as arts and crafts, toys and Dr. Seuss-inspired games.
Bookville will also be featured on the new Carnival Vista when it debuts in 2016.
