A Perfect Cruise Holiday with Kids
Why leave the kids at home when MSC Cruises offers an affordable family holiday for children of all ages? You'll be pleased to learn children under 13 cruise FREE when sharing one cabin with 2 paying adults on all MSC Cruises departures, paying only the required port charges. In addition, we also offer a complimentary children's program filled with entertainment, fun, and games. Dedicated activities are arranged for children from under 3 years old and up to 17 years of age in the Centre.
Daily activities are divided into four age specific groups with themed activities displayed daily in the onboard program.
Our Children'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. The Children's Club leaders will also take youngsters to the buffet or the ship's restaurant for children's meals (from a dedicated Children's Menu). For families who want to share a shore excursion experience, children under age 12 receive a discount up to 30%* off the adult price on shore excursions!
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 Fantasia, MSC Splendida, MSC Divina and MSC Preziosa 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 and MSC Preziosa offers a twisting waterslide out over the ship for the older children.
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, children's activities are not restricted to the Mini Clubs.
The fun continues with our children's menus. Kids love our authentic Italian favorites like pasta and pizza, but we also offer a great range of International cuisine that will keep even the fussy eaters happy!
We also offer the My Teen Card, making it convenient for kids 12 -17 to make pre-paid purchases while on-board. The pre-paid Teen Card can only be applied at time of Check-in of the cruise.
As a family-owned company, you can be sure we make every cruise family-friendly and enjoyable for all.
