Why Carnival Cruise Line is Perfect For the Dr Seuss Fan in Your Family

Do you love Dr Seuss or have a fan of the books in your family? Are you considering taking a family cruise in the near future? Then a cruise aboard a Carnival Cruise Line ship is the perfect place for you and your family. Carnival Cruise Line has array of Dr Seuss activities aboard their ships for every fan of the classic books.

Here were our favorite Dr Seuss activities aboard our recent trip with the Carnival Sensation.

Green Eggs & Ham Breakfast

The Green Eggs & Ham Breakfast, which must be booked while aboard your cruise ship is not to be missed. It truly looks like a party when you enter the dining room with Cat in Hat centerpieces, an ice sculpture and fun activity book for guests.

A special Dr Seuss menu is also given to guests. Some of the selections included, cereal, Do You Like Green Eggs and Ham?,  The Who’s Fruit, Horton’s Cereal-Crusted Frecnh Toast, Truffula Tree Pancakes and more. Ava and I both enjoyed the pancakes and agreed they were the most tasty of all the items on the menu. A close second were the green eggs & ham that Ella ate all up!

While feasting on your breakfast special guests come to visit! On our cruise, Cat in the Hat, Thing 1 and 2 and Sam from Green Egg and Ham came to the party. They made time to visit each table and then take pictures one on one with  all the guests. There was also a professional photographer to take pictures if you wanted a nice keepsake photo to take home.

Character Meet

Near the portrait center you’re able to meet various Dr Seuss characters during set times. The times can be found in the daily Fun Times brochure. The photos are taken by the portrait center and are set in front of whimsical backgrounds.

Seuss-Palooza Parade

This was one of our favorite activities and the kids had a blast picking out nick and knacks to make sure all the guests aboard our cruise ship would hear them parading through middle deck of the ship. As we paraded, we sang as loud as possible, “Who’s on the loose? It’s Cat in The Hat of course!”. Honestly, I don’t know who had more fun me or the kids!

Seuss-Palooza Story Time

This activity is held in conjunction with the Seuss-Palooza Parada aboard the Carnival Sensation. During the parade, we made our way to the main theatre where the cruise director became the storyteller. Our director read us the classic  ‘Horton Hears a Who!’.  Participating children sat on top the stage where many were picked to play characters in the story. Even some parents joined in!

Our eldest daughter, Ava was chosen as one of the three monkeys of the story. She was given a paper monkey hat that she was even allowed to take it back to our cabin. I really liked that small children got to play a part in story. Our three-year-old twin girls amongst other youngstser got to be clovers in the field Vlad drops the clover in.

Dr Seuss Gifts to Your Room

Aboard all Carnival Cruise ships you can have special Dr Seuss themed gifts sent to your room.  From decorating your room to a Cat and the Hat plush + book, there are variety of items that can purchased before embarking on your cruise. To do this login into your Carnival account and check out the gifts and stateroom decor area.  The items purchased beforehand will be in your stateroom on the first day of arrival.

Check out Carnival to See other Seuss at Sea Fun

Be sure to check out each ship before booking your cruise to see individual Dr Seuss activities. On some ships you will find a Dr. Seuss Bookville and even a Dr. Seuss WaterWorks play area.

My kids still talk about that amazing breakfast and Matt Mitcham reading the Cat in the Hat was the highlight of our cruise. I would love to sail with them again

Awesome! Such a fun way to entertain kids while on a cruise. I am pretty sure your daughters had a blast. My grandson is just starting to learn to love Dr. Seuss books and wants to know where we can buy green eggs and ham. 🙂

I love Carnival cruise lines and they have the best theme breakfasts and events. We did this very same Green eggs and ham breakfast and a Dr Seuss parade once too. Loved it. So much fun. These are the fun cruises for families and I can’t wait to take one again soon.
