Carnival Cruise Lines Partners With Dr. Seuss Enterprises To Bring ‘Seuss At Sea’ To Kids And Families On ‘Fun Ships’

Seuss At Sea

From the whimsical and always wonderful world of Dr. Seuss comes Cats in Hats, Fish Red and Blue, and both kinds of Things — 1 and 2. And they’re all coming to a Carnival cruise near you with Seuss At Sea!

Dr. Seuss’s timeless stories are the kind kids memorize, and this is the kind of cruise you’ll remember for a lifetime. The whole family will still enjoy all the classic Carnival activities, but the littlest ones — kids ages 2–5 — and their families will also enjoy an all-new, extra-special experience as the fantastical world of Dr. Seuss comes to life around them.

Enjoy a special onboard character parade, interactive story time, arts & crafts activities, character breakfast and more, featuring their favorite Dr. Seuss characters. Seuss At Sea truly brings your child’s favorite books to life.

Seuss-a-Palooza Story Time

To kids, anytime is a good time for story time. But story time with Dr. Seuss aboard a Carnival cruise is unlike any they’ve experienced on land.

First, kids get in the Dr. Seuss spirit with Cat-inspired face painting, plus some wacky games and prizes. Once they’re settled in at this uniquely Seuss-tastic reading space, they’ll be treated to a special reading from the Dr. Seuss’s library, complete with character appearances that encourage participation from audience members, young and old.

Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast with The Cat in The Hat and Friends

Pack your imagination, but don’t forget your appetite as the whole family embarks on a breakfast that’s part meal, and part journey into the deliciously whimsical world of Dr. Seuss.

Sit down to a truly fantastical feast at Green Eggs and Ham, a Breakfast with the Cat in the Hat and Friends. Bright colors and patterns decorate your table, which features fun and unique menus. Eat from wacky plates and bowls and drink from long curly straws.

Feast! Feast! Feast! Lose yourself exploring a delicious menu where you’ll find “Green Eggs and Ham,” brightly colored fruit, gravity-defying pancake stacks, funky french toast, blue yogurt with strawberries, “Moose Juice” ‘n’ ”Goose Juice”… and much more. (Classic breakfast offerings are available as well.) Breakfast is also the perfect time to meet and greet the stars of Dr. Seuss — characters will be around for special photo opportunities and fun interactions, making this a meal to remember.
