The Sea at its most Playful
MSC family cruises are designed to provide the perfect family holiday experience, and offer a world of playful discovery to the whole family on board our ships.
Thanks to our kids' clubs and our various events, activities and excursions for families, MSC Cruises knows how to create the best cruises for kids and parents, that can enjoy fun times together and separately, as well as lots of opportunities to make new friends.
Discover more about what MSC Cruises has to offer when you’re looking for cruises with kids and family activities below.
• Kids travel free with MSC! Children under the age of 12 years at the time of cruising, travelling with two adults in the same cabin cruise free of charge: only paying port charges on selected departures.
Over selected departure dates and destinations the free age for children may rise to under 18 years when sharing the same cabin with two adults, only paying port charges.*
• All the luxury resort leisure facilities on board are included free of charge in your cruise, from the Aqua Park, Swimming Pools and Water Slide to the top games consoles (PS3, Xbox and Wii) forming just part of our club amenities. So your kids and teens can do just as they like without a second thought.
• Even the high-tech gaming attractions on board like our Virtual World and 4D Cinema attract only a modest charge for a special treat.
• Your children are always made to feel special with MSC, receiving a dedicated welcome from the Kids Corner in the port terminal onwards. Security bracelets are issued when you board, while beepers or DECT phones can be hired for a modest charge so you can keep in touch at all times.
• We provide a varied programme of whole-family and supervised activities, entertainment and social events tailor-made for four separate age groups in their own clubs. And they’re all free, too!
• Innovative activities like Fun Time Dinner, Happy Dinners and Kids Around the Clock let everyone in the family do things their own way - even at mealtimes, late at night and during shore excursions. So your children are free to explore a social life of their own, meeting new friends from around the world in a safe environment, immersed in a holiday they’ll never forget. And the grown-ups gain equally special free moments, relaxed in the knowledge that the kids are cared for and enjoying the time of their lives. Read on for full details!
