We recently returned from our first Carnival Cruise on the Carnival Inspiration, which sailed to Catalina Island and Ensenada, and our kids are already asking when we can return! Carnival Cruise Line has many Dr. Seuss themed activities available on their ships. From an interactive story time to character photo opts, Carnival brings many of our favorite book characters to life through their Seuss at Sea program. The Carnival Horizon even has an entire Dr. Seuss themed waterpark onboard, which we are eager to experience!
We were pleasantly surprised at how kid friendly Carnival is and the highlight of our trip was the Green Eggs and Ham breakfast. Sign up for this special Dr. Seuss themed breakfast at guest relations or be on the lookout for the themed sign up table as you walk onto the ship. The cost is $5 per person and slots fill up fast, so make sure to grab your spot as soon as you get on board. The breakfast is typically offered on the last day at sea with two seating times available. It is well worth the minimal price tag and something we would most definitely do again!
From photo props to an ice sculpture of The Cat in the Hat, Carnival went all out to bring the spirit of Dr. Seuss to the Carnival Inspiration. I especially loved the coordinating red, white and blue tablescapes with a top hat and truffula tree centerpiece. The menu, which looked like a Green Eggs and Ham book, had many themed offerings. Our favorites included the Truffula Tree Pancakes and Horton’s Cereal-Crusted French Toast. You know we also had to try the Green Eggs and Ham, which we did in fact like on a ship! You can view the full breakfast menu HERE.
As we were finishing up our meal, a few special guests stopped by for photos. Thing 1 and Thing 2 stopped by our table, while The Cat in the Hat and Sam I Am met kids at the front of the restaurant. The kids received a little booklet for autographs that the character helpers stamped a “signature” in. From the food to the decor, we loved everything about this character breakfast. My kids have grown up reading Dr. Seuss books since before they could even talk and this was such a special way to bring our favorite characters to life! If you have the opportunity to cruise Carnival, don’t miss the Green Eggs and Ham breakfast!
