AN MSC CRUISE MAKES A PERFECT FAMILY HOLIDAY
• 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 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 30% discount 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 and MSC Splendida offer designated children’s pools and outdoor play areas. For example, on MSCPoesia, 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, 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 onboard.
As a family-owned company, you can be sure we make every cruise family-friendly and enjoyable for all.
**Please note that the activities vary by the number and ages of the children onboard.**
