The new program is now offered on all Carnival ships. This step puts Carnival even closer to their competition in terms of children's programs. For comparison, Disney offers a free service called "Dine and Play" where the counselors come and get your children 45 minutes into the meal (second seating only) and bring them to the kids club while you enjoy the rest of your meal and other nighttime activities. Royal Caribbean has a similar program for early seating, but the children's clubs close at 10 p.m. Here's hoping this trend continues because, as any parent knows, you can't fully enjoy a long meal with a bored/distracted child.
