Cruising with infants

The thought of holidaying with an infant conjures up images of mid-air meltdowns and potty dramas at inopportune moments; but it doesn’t have to be that way! With Carnival Cruise Line; you can cruise with children as young as 6 months old on our domestic cruises (12 months on our international departures), and you’re never far away from an amenity when you need it.

Let us do the entertaining
You can drop your kids under the age of 2 to our Camp Ocean program on port days, in the morning on sea days, and in the evening for our Night Owls* program; ensuring a little reconnecting time for you and your significant other.
