Kid's Programs

Children's Club

MSC offers 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 ships vary in size and facilities, kid’s activities are not restricted to the Mini Clubs.

MSC's kid’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. If parents are ashore or involved in other activities, the kids club leaders will also take youngsters to the buffet or the ship’s restaurant for children’s meals (from a dedicated Children’s Menu).

Children's Menu

Italian favorites like pasta and pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs and delicious pastries and desserts. The My Teen Card makes it convenient for kids 12 -17 to make pre-paid purchases while onboard.
