AND FOR YOUR BABIES?

AND FOR YOUR BABIES?

We want to help you make the best out of your MSC Cruises vacation. Here are a few tips to help you and the whole family get ready for a wonderful cruise vacation with the kids. Opt for practical and comfortable clothing that allows kids to move freely. Clothe children in layers, so you can cover and uncover them as needed and don’t forget their teddy, book and/or favorite toy. If your child has to take any specific medicines or uses any particular products, remember to bring them with you. MSC Cruises has specially created nutritional menus for kids but you can bring your child’s favorite baby food with you. You can also ask for warm milk to be brought to your stateroom, using Room Service, available 24 hours a day (an extra charge may apply) - excludes powdered milk. Plus, bottle warmers are available in specific places on all our ships: contact Reception – Guest Service for information once you’re on board. 

​BABY CHEF

​BABY CHEF

Cooking is fun especially with the kids: Baby Chef ( 2-to-3-year olds). The most delicious creations happen in the kitchen. Let your 2-and 3-year old get messy in our kid-accessible kitchen during our fun and exciting Doremi Chef Challenge. Supervised by you and our Head Chef, kids will learn how to prepare a tasty pizza or whatever their imagination can conjure up.

SMILES, NAPS & MORE

THE BEDTIME ROUTINE

According to the Osservatorio Chicco Baby Research Center, babies that sleep in a cot beside their parents have a more calming and relaxing experience which allows them to sleep more easily.
THE BEDTIME ROUTINE

​NAPS

If you are a new cruiser with MSC Cruises, you’ll be happy to know we have extraordinarily comfortable staterooms – real hotel-style rooms – because of their incredible comfort and extreme spaciousness. Whichever room type you choose – Balcony, Ocean View or Interior stateroom – you’ll find the same amenities perfect for a restful night or a midday nap.
