    Is there any way to get a recent Camp Carnival schedule for the Conquest? We are trying to plan an open bar M&G, but need to do it when the kids are in camp. Suggested times: Right after muster drill, but it may be registration time. First night after late seating, but do they even offer CC that night? First afternoon at sea, but it looks like CC closes for a while in the afternoon. Help!

    Just from experience, I would not recommend an Open Bar M&G after Muster Drill. This is "Sail Away" and trying to get people off the top deck at this time to come to a Open Bar somewhere on the inside of the ship is not really what people want to do when first getting on the ship. Early to mid afternoon on the first Sea Day always seems to bring the most guests. Scheduling it for the first Sea Day afternoon gives people time to do their own thing the first night and next morning and is typically the slowest time on the ship as far as other scheduled ship activities go.

    It will be hard to come by a recent Camp Carnival schedule for a specific ship. It's not something that seems to be saved or posted very often unfortunately.

    Camp Carnival times will very ship to ship and itinerary to itinerary. Typically Camp Carnival opens at 6pm on the first night, then at 10am in the morning. On Sea Days they usually close from around 1-2pm for lunch and again from 5-6 for dinner. On Port Days they will stay open and take your kids to meals and walk them back to Camp after they are all finished. The free Camp time ends at 10pm, but your child can stay until 3am for Camp Carnival Night Owls.

    Those are just rough times and info, unless you can find a recent Fun Times for your specific ship and itinerary it may be hard to nail down any specifics before actually boarding.

    My suggestion would be to plan your M&G for sometime between 2pm and 5pm on the first Sea Day. This would be your best bet for Camp Carnival being open and for getting the best turnout.

    Thanks for the information Greg. We plan on having an "informal" meet and greet after the Muster drill which would be at the rear lido deck bar so people don't feel like they have to be there at any particular time and get the most for their $ with the drinks, as everyone will pay for their own. I like the idea of first sea day afternoon, but I have seen some Camp schedules that are closed from anywhere between 3 - 5 pm as it is "elegant" night" preperation. I think I read that John Heald could be contacted to arrange a M&G. Do you know if this is true and if he may be able to get a better schedule?

    Yes, John does still do this but at the same time he is just a middle man and you can usually get it done quicker by doing it yourself. For informal Meet & Greets (what Carnival calls their non-paid events) they don't do much other than putting it in the Fun Times for everyone to see if you request it. You really need to coordinate with your ship just for Private Parties (what Carnival calls there paid/open bar events).

    Private Parties on board need to be organized through one person and the event will be charged to that single person's Sail & Sign account. This person will need to contact groupeventplanning@carnival.com to get the ball rolling. Send them your ship name, sail date and booking number and let them know you are interested in setting up a private party on board. Once you have started this communication with Carnival they will forward your information to the event planner specific to your ship and sail date. Your ship's event planner will then contact you. This happens pretty quick, usually within a couple days of you emailing the address above. Your correspondence will be with your ship's event coordinator directly from then on. Your ship's event planner should also be able to get you an accurate Camp Carnival schedule. The event coordinator will try and get a preliminary guest count from you about 5-6 weeks out from sailing. They need this to verify that the location capacity will work with your current group size. A final firm guest count will need to be reported to them usually at least a week prior to sailing. They will let you know your "cut-off" date for adding new guests, but I've never heard of issues with adding a few last minute guests because you actually don't pay for the event until there is a head count the day of the private party. They have a "cut-off" date because they are really just worried about large last minute changes in numbers and the issues that can arise from needing to find a different venue on board capable of a larger capacity and trying to schedule additional employees for the party. The minimum number of guests to have a Private Party on board is 20. If your guest count falls below 20 you can still have the event but you will need to pay for the minimum 20 people. You can always recruit a couple more people once on board if you need to, mentioning open bar to a fellow cruiser for about $10/hr seems to get people to join up pretty quickly.

    Here is a current Private Party Price List for Carnival that was accurate as of a couple months ago: Private Party Price List. Your event coordinator will also send you one, if it is different please send it on to us at support@cruisin.me and we will update our information with it.
