Cunard Kid's Programs

Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria Facilities

Queen Mary 2  and Queen Victoria welcomes families to The Zone, a beautiful nursery and children’s center full of toys, games, and activities. This area, located on Deck 6, is supervised daily by fully trained nannies and youth staff. Older children will enjoy activities offered by the Youth Staff at The Playzone such as sports, discos, video games, scavenger hunts, and arts and crafts.

Queen Mary 2 also offers a family pool area so families can enjoy the outdoors together. Please note that children must be a minimum of one-year-old to participate in the Nursery without parental supervision. Children under one-year-old are welcome, provided they are accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times. Private baby-sitting is not available. However, complimentary group child-sitting in the children’s center is available in the evenings.

Queen Elizabeth Facilities

Younger members of the family and perhaps some adults will not want to leave The Play Zone filled with toys, games and activities. As the younger children delight in the soft play area and ball pool you can be certain that they are in the best of care with certified Early Years staff.

Adjoining the Play Zone is the outside pool area where the whole family can enjoy themselves.

A range of engaging activities will be thoughtfully prepared by youth staff including sports, arts and crafts and a disco, as well as themed days such as Pirate Day!

The teen area, with its computers and relaxed layout provides an ideal setting for older children to meet and make new friends.
