Youth programming added to the Carnival HUB app

Carnival Hub App

Carnival Cruise Line has updated its HUB App to include a comprehensive day-by-day schedule of onboard youth programming and activities.

Carnival carries 900,000 children each year and offers three age-specific programmes to a wide range of onboard activities and attractions.

Now, for the first time, schedules and details for its family actives are available in one convenient and centralised area.

Cruisers now have the ability to add actives, such as the Build-A-Bear Workshop At Sea and Seuss at Sea, to there favourites and to receive reminders and updates.

Parents are able to view a detailed, time-specific breakdown of activities and locations for Camp Ocean’s daily programming as well as check-in and check-out information and reminders.

“Our guests continue to be engaged and excited by our award-winning youth programmes, and the HUB App now helps parents keep up with all of the fun in one easy-to-navigate area to plan their perfect holiday. We expect this to be an extremely popular feature for families that want to maximize the fun,”

Melissa Wisecarver, director of youth experience for Carnival Cruise Line.
