We are traveling Carnival Conquest with our 4 & 3 yr old. I know they are setup to keep kids in the camp while the parents go on excursions, but I had not considered it for us (kinda freaks me out a bit to be away from them like that). I've recently had friends assure me that Carnival is completely setup to accommodate our situation and, as long as we take a Carnival sponsored excursion, they can contact us via the tour operator if there is any type of emergency. I'm now semi-considering it when we go to Grand Turk, because my DH and I want to snorkel the reef, but can't take the kids to do that. Has anyone here have experience with leaving the kids behind? Did it give you anxiety like it is giving me right now? :) TIA for your help!
