MSC Cruises is a family-run company and our own family-friendly philosophy is reflected in our FREE kids policy where children sharing a cabin with two adults cruise for FREE only paying port dues and flights, where applicable.
Of course, our family cruise holidays don't just add up financially, kids will have bags of fun with our qualified entertainment staff on hand all day, every day to entertain children and teens aged 3 – 17, free of charge.
All our cruises offer two clubs for children (Mini Club 3 to 6 years, Junior Club 7 to 11) offering age-focused kids’ activities from arts and crafts to swimming, sports tournaments, treasure hunts, parties, live shows, talent contests and onboard adventures.
And don't forget, while your kids are doing all this, you're free to relax and do just as you please secure in the knowledge that your kids are having a great time without you!
From treasure hunts and kid's missions to talent shows, the Virtual World Arcade, trivia, crafts, chess and dance contests…there’s even a newspaper to write and draw about their preferred activities.
And, if your kids are easily bored, don't worry, the programme changes daily to keep it all endlessly entertaining.
Our family cruises are great for teenagers with dedicated entertainment for 13 to 17 year olds: they can chill out or join in everything from sports and games tournaments to MTV-style dance classes. When they're not enjoying the programmed activities you'll find that the Virtual World Arcade becomes something of a magnet for the teens onboard.
Best of all, the teen aspect of our family cruises doesn't run out of steam when the sun goes down. Night-time brings trivia and dance contests, live music and discos.
A complete list of teen-orientated activities to keep everyone happy.
Choose from treasure hunts and swimming games, teen trivia, talent shows and karaoke, to volleyball, basketball, football, tennis and table-tennis tournaments as well as dance lessons in hip-hop and Latin-style.
Your teenagers can show off their newly-learnt dance moves in the Graffiti Disco or chill out at a music live show with their own music.
Fun events include SMS night, MTV competitions, the teens hit list and other themed evenings. No parents allowed - after all, family cruises are for them as well as you!
Fun time dinner & Happy dinners
Although we believe that family cruises are a great way to bring families together to enjoy real quality time, we also strive to ensure that adults get a break from the everyday chores of parenting.
The MSC Cruises Teen Card allows teenagers the independence to make small onboard purchases whilst ensuring that parents can set a budget on spending and not be pestered for money every five minutes!
Available in two amounts, the Teen Card allows independent teenagers access to refreshments and their cruise cabin.
