At last count, Seuss at Sea was on 20 (and soon to be 22) of Carnival’s 24 ships, so it’s safe to assume the cruise line wouldn’t make that big an investment unless it knew what a hit it would be. And so it is, among the kids who participate and the parents who can drop them off. The concept, a part of Carnival’s Camp Ocean, is also part of the phenomenon that keeps Doc Seuss alive, almost a quarter-century after the death of the author who created it, Theodor Geisel. Seuss at Sea surfaced while we were on the Carnival Freedom last year. This will give you an idea what it’s like…
Thing 1 and Thing 2 wreaked havoc in the Seuss books but are under control at sea.
Dr. Seuss Bookville, a brightly colored room to inspire parents to read and kids to listen.
The well-known Seuss character Sam, I Am, who likes his eggs done a certain way.
You might say this is one cool place for the littlest passengers, Penguins, ages 2 to 5.
The Seuss at Sea Breakfast, once a cruise, includes the inevitable “green eggs and ham.”
The room with no name, just a place where kids can bounce off the walls and talk about it.
