Both Sydney-based cruise ships will add inflatable bocce courts and giant-sized board games such as Trivial Pursuit, Guess Who and Cranium. One of the world’s most famous murder mystery games, Cluedo, will also see the costumed characters present their alibis at the beginning of each cruise, with passengers attempting to solve the crime through clues given to them throughout the voyage.
Other new events include an 80s Rock and Glow night, which celebrates the decade’s music and fashion, and Lip Sync Battle, based on the US TV show, where passengers compete against each other complete with choreography, costumes and sets.
Exclusive to Carnival Spirit, the new Creative Cove will provide family arts and craft sessions, jewellery-making, word art and painting classes. Meanwhile, on Carnival Legend, children can now make their own cuddly toys at Build-A-Bear workshops in the new Camp Ocean club room.
According to Carnival, Australian kids are engaging with these activities at twice the rate as Americans.
