Anyone with children will know how popular Build-a-Bear Workshops are. Designing and build their own teddy is an exciting activity that any kid will love as a special treat, and now they can do it at sea!
Carnival Cruise Line launched their first ever Build-a-Bear Workshop at sea on-board Carnival Dream back in 2016, rolling it out to the remaining fleet by the summer of 2017.
Popular pop-up with Build-A-Bear
Carnival is the family cruise leader, with 700,000 children per year enjoying a holiday on-board their ships. The addition of the workshops will complement the wide range of activities already available for children, including the kids’ clubs, water parks, arcades, mini golf courses, poolside movies and sports courts.
Since launching on Carnival, the Build-A-Bear has become one of the more popular experiences to enjoy on-board, with each ship offering six choices of bear to choose from, ranging from white and pink bears to monkeys, dogs, sea turtles, bunnies and even the Cat in the Hat! Selected Carnival cruises also offer a St. Jude bear which includes charitable donations to the St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
Make your own memories
Once children have selected their bear, this is taken to be stuffed at the machine where, half-way through the children are asked to place a heart token inside to bring it to life. The bear is then sewn up and ready to dress!
There is a whole range of outfits available for your little ones to pick from, including Carnival branded t-shirts and sailor uniforms, ballerina tutus, swim shorts, sunglasses, flip-flops and more.
Each bear costs $26, which also includes a Carnival-branded Build-A-Bear drawstring bag for carrying your new bear. A Carnival t-shirt is $5 and all other accessories and outfits cost extra.
