Costa Kid's Programs

For all children between the ages of 3 to 17, Costa Cruises entertainment staff are available every day from 9.00 pm to midday, from 3.00 pm to 6.00 pm and from 9.00 pm to 11.30 pm. This is a free group service. The children's program is called Fun@sea and is handed out to all children upon boarding by a member of our entertainment staff. The program shows the exact times of the different daytime and evening activities. The TeenZone offers activities for teens and junior teens (varying from ship to ship and high or low season). Two themed dinners per cruise just for kids with a menu designed for younger guests.

Kid's Clubs

One club is designed for kids ages 3 to 6 years, and one club is designed for kids ages 7 to 11. Children under the age of 3 are allowed to enter and stay in the room only during certain times (not during busy times in high season) and must be accompanied by an adult.

Teen Zone

One club for junior teens ages 12 to 14, and one club for teens age 15 to 17. Note: Teen Junior is only active during certain periods.

Kids Games Room

Younger guests can have hours of fun in a pirate ship or giant Lego brick room, with a vast assortment of video games.

Kids Menu and Beverage Card

Children will love the special Kids Menu that is served at every meal for it contains all of the foods that kids like best! Spaghetti, Pizza, Hot dogs, Hamburgers, Cheeseburgers, Grilled Cheese, Ice Cream and more - there is always something to please even the most finicky eaters! Plus, Costa offers a Boys & Girls beverage card for 20 non-alcoholic drinks – so kids can have fruit juices and carbonated drinks at any time during their cruise!

Shore Excursions

While Costa does not offer shore excursions specifically for children, there are, a number of shore excursion activities well suited to them at special rates.

Family Fun

Kids and their parents can get together and participate in fun activities like karaoke, bingo and even a talent show. These activities are a great opportunity for parents and kids to spend time together and have loads of fun while they’re at it!

Parents Night Out

Costa gives parents traveling with children some time off by organizing two events where kids spend the evening with other guests their age at a fun themed dinner (Squok, Pirates, Circus, Video games world, Halloween, WWF in the Jungle or Underwater) and fun activities designed especially for them. While the kids are being entertained, parents can relax as they enjoy sumptuous cuisine and a romantic evening together, feeling secure that their children are having while being supervised by our dedicated Youth Counselors. With this program, parents and children will both be pleased with the variety of shipboard activities and the warmth of Italian Style cruising.


While cruising is a vacation for the whole family, Costa also provides quiet time for Mom and Dad. That can be during the day, while the kids are entertained in the Kids Club program, or at night, while the kids are with group baby-sitters. Mini and Maxi Club nighttime group baby-sitting, held in the children’s area, is a free of charge baby-sitting service until 1:30 am.

There is no night time baby-sitting service available for children under 36 months of age.
