Dr. Seuss is going cruising. Carnival Cruise Lines has formed a partnership with Dr. Seuss Enterprises to bring the favorite child brand on board. In the partnership, Carnival can include characters and themes from the Dr. Seuss stories on its fleet of 24 "Fun Ships."

Some of the ships will be decked out in Dr. Seuss. The main dining room will have a Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast with the Cat in the Hat and Friends. Guests can enjoy a themed breakfast including green eggs and ham, moose juice and goose juice, along with colorful fruit and pancake stacks, funky French toast and more, with traditional breakfast favorites also available. The wait staff will wear Dr. Seuss-inspired uniforms and characters like the Cat in the Hat, Thing One and Thing Two, and Sam will be joining guests at their tables for fun interactions and one-of-a-kind photo opportunities. The special breakfast will take place on the first sea day of each cruise and will cost $5 per guest.

Every ship will have a selection of classic Dr. Seuss books, toys and themed activities for children to enjoy. There will be special showings of movies like "The Cat in the Hat" and Dr. Seuss's "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" in the outdoor Seaside Theater on the Lido Deck. The Carnival Freedom and Carnival Vista will have a Dr. Seuss Bookville facility which has a Seuss-themed play space featuring iconic decor, colors, shapes and funky furniture inspired by the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss. This is the perfect place for families to relax, read books, play games and do arts and crafts.

There will be a Seuss-a-palooza Story Time to share Dr. Seuss stories with guests, including characters during sea days. Throughout the trip, guests will have the chance to meet and interact with favorite Dr. Seuss characters and participate in special photo opportunities featuring colorful and zany Dr. Seuss-inspired artwork, as well as through events and activities such as the Seuss-a-palooza Character Parade where guests can join Dr. Seuss characters in a swirly conga line along the Promenade.

The Dr. Seuss theme will be a great addition for kids and Carnival has plenty of them. The cruise line carries about 700,000 kids each year.

"Our youth and family programming continues to be highly rated and extremely popular with the millions of families who sail with Carnival, but we're constantly challenging ourselves to uncover unique and interesting ways to further enhance our guest experience," said Mark Tamis, senior vice president of guest operations for Carnival Cruise Lines. "We are thrilled to bring the fun, whimsical and wonderful world of Dr. Seuss to life for our guests of all ages to create even more fun and memorable moments during our cruise vacations."

"Dr. Seuss inspires imaginations across generations and encourages a playfulness and whimsy that is often lost in today's 'always on' society," said Susan Brandt, president of Dr. Seuss Enterprises. "We're excited to be working with Carnival Cruise Lines to bring some of the timeless magic of Dr. Seuss to the families that sail each year. Seuss at Sea will let kids and parents alike explore their imaginations through the memorable onboard experiences we're building together."

The Seuss at Sea program will begin to launch on ships starting with the Carnival Splendor in February 2014 and will spread across the whole fleet by 2015. The Carnival Vista will have the theme when it debuts in 2016.
