In addition to our family cruises, we also offer a complimentary kids program filled with entertainment, fun, and games. Dedicated entertainment and activities are arranged for children over 3 years old in the Children’s Center. The daily activities are divided into age specific groups with themed activities displayed daily in the onboard program. Children’s entertainment is organized into three different age categories:
• Mini Club: Children 3 to 8 years old
• Junior Club: Children 9 to 12 years
• Teenager's Club: Guests 13 up to 17 years of age
Our kid’s club leaders organize lots of great activities, shows, and games such as treasure hunts, a mini-Olympics, painting courses, dancing, arts, and crafts. Each ship has a cheerful, spacious and safe playroom. Knowing your children are with our expert cruise staff, you can relax and enjoy the pool or unwind with an aromatic massage.
When parents are on excursions ashore, the Mini Club and Juniors Club will remain open for children 3-12 years of age, allowing parents’ peace of mind. If parents are ashore or involved in other activities, the kids club leaders will also take youngsters to the buffet or the ship’s restaurant for children’s meals (from a dedicated Children’s Menu).
You’ll also find lots of family activities onboard MSC Cruises, such as miniature golf, tennis and basketball. Several of our newest ships, including MSC Musica, MSC Orchestra, MSC Poesia, MSC Magnifica, MSC Divina, MSC Fantasia and MSC Splendida offer designated children’s pools and outdoor play areas. For example, on MSC Poesia, your children can enjoy our Stone Age dinosaur play area. While MSC Fantasia offers Il Polo Nord, (The North Pole) children’s play area that includes a swimming pool with a waterslide, the first on any MSC ship. MSC Opera, MSC Lirica, MSC Sinfonia, and MSC Armonia offer dedicated indoor areas for the kids including a video game room. All entertainment activities, both for younger guests and adults are conducted in all languages to cater to the needs of every guest. As our ships vary in size and facilities, kid’s activities are not restricted to the Mini Clubs. When parents are on excursions ashore, the Mini Club will remain open, allowing parents’ peace of mind. If parents are ashore or involved in other activities, the kids club leaders will also take youngsters to the buffet or the ship’s restaurant for children’s meals (from a dedicated Children’s Menu). And for families who want to share a shore excursion experience, this affordable family vacation also includes discounts on shore excursions for children (ages vary by destination)!
The fun continues even with our children’s menus. Kids love our pasta and pizza. And, we also offer All-American favorites, too, such as hamburgers, hot dogs and delicious pastries and desserts. And, "My Teen Card" makes it convenient for kids 12 -17 to make pre-paid purchases while onboard.
As a family-owned company, you can be sure we make every cruise family-friendly and enjoyable for all.
