MSC Cruises raise kids club fun


Just yesterday here at Cruise Ship News we gave you information that MSC had just announced free child places (restrictions apply), with tips on how to preplan your holiday to avoid any hiccups and stress. One of the worries that some parents have when deciding their next holiday is whether there will be enough activities to keep the children entertained.

We can tell you that this is something that MSC Cruises have considered. Being a family run business, childrens needs are at the top of their priority list, and today we can tell you that existing programmes have now been enhanced to give not just children but also teens a little more to choose from.

Packed programmes now not only allow children to participate in art and craft activities, sports, the use of gaming on Wii and Xbox consoles with a list of games to choose from, but family events now also include scavenger hunts, parades and onboard the Lirica and Musica cruise ships, a special dance floor has been introduced to children and teenagers to allow them to strutt their stuff!

Parents can choose from four different age group clubs including, a Mini Club for 3 to 6 year olds which we have to add here has had its opening times extended from 9 am to 11 pm, a 7 to 11 year club, 12 to 14 year old called the ‘Y Team’ club and lastly a 15 to 17 year old called the ‘MSC Generation’ teen club. Along side this from 9 am for an hour, parents can take their baby or toddler along to ‘nanny’s hour,’ with the assurance that their littleun will be looked after by MSC dedicated and trained staff.

To give children the best out of their club experience, MSC has now devised more staff to children ratio numbers, with the addition of a counseling service should it be needed. Click here to find out more.

Let us know if you have taken a holiday with MSC Cruises, how have you found the experience? Have your children used the clubs onboard and if so what feedback can you give others?

    Have just returned from an 8 day cruise on Msc Poesia.  We had a great holiday.  Mr grandchildren attended the Teen Club on many occasions but unfortunately the staff running the sessions did not turn up on several occasions.  This proved to be frustrating for them and spoiled their enjoyment of their first cruise.
