Cruise Spotlight: MSC Kids Clubs
Welcome aboard your MSC Cruise. Did you know that MSC is a family owned business? Who better to take a family cruise with than a company who's foundation is built on family. MSC Cruises understands the need for an array of activities tailored to individual needs, but also activities focused on the family as a whole. With MSC you can trust that you and the kids, will have an experience to match your dreams. I have just one word for you, "FREE". Children under eighteen travel for FREE when they share a cabin with their dear parents. Yes, you read that right, FREE. What an amazing way to kick off a lighthearted, exciting, fun, adventurous, and yet peaceful cruise? I'm pretty sure you parents are already enjoying this cruise with that fantastic news! However, that's just the beginning. MSC knows that different age groups have different desires and interests to meet their getaway needs, and boy does MSC have it! Youngster under 3 years old, welcome to the Mini Club! You can spend hours here learning and giggling with delight. Dad and Mom, you get to join in the fun too! At the Mini Club little ones get to bond with you and other children their own age. Making memories and having fun. Plus Mom and Dad get to meet new people too! Your little one will learn and have fun with toys specifically chosen by Osservatorio Chicco, Baby Research Center. Have fun with music, baby Olympics, or practice English with the Bilingual program. Of course there's always the chance to meet the mascot Dorebaby! The MSC Mini Club even offers Babycare Service, but don't forget to book ahead due to limited availability. Then there's the fact that those active cute youngsters have a way of making a little extra mess on their clothes, but no worries! MSC has just the thing for that. With Baby Laundry Service for kids ages 0-6, their clothes will be washed separate, and in specially designed machines with the perfect laundry detergent to gently take care of any extra muck.
Calling all kids and juniors to join the crew at DOREMILAND! DOREMILAND is comprised of two groups, the Miniclub and the Juniors Club. The Miniclub is comprised of the Sailors, ages 3-6. The Juniors Club is made up of the Pirates, ages 7-11. Athletics, dance class, Xbox 360, Wii, PlayStation 3, Lego activities, arts and crafts, and more! Your Sailor or Pirate are sure to find the activity that speaks to them! There are even special activities such as a pool parade, a family disco, cooking classes, and a talent show. The variety of activities available seems endless.
Did I mention that with MSC you'll even find amazing children's meal options tailored for the kids and juniors? Attend the Fun Time Dinners at the Buffet Restaurant, and the kids will relish in exciting entertainment as you enjoy your meal. The Happy Dinner is another fantastic option. With the Happy Dinner the kids eat their meal while sitting with you as you enjoy your appetizers. Once the children are done eating, they are shown to the Miniclub for loads of fun. All of this while the grownup's continue to enjoy their own meal. Here's a neat fact to top it off, every restaurant aboard MSC Cruises offers a children's menu! You can feel assured that the kiddoes will be able to choose from numerous delicious and kid friendly options.
Next up we have the Young Club which is for ages 12-14, and the Teens Club for ages 15-17. The Young Club is enjoyed with Youth Team Service, the Teens Club with Teen Entertainer Service. MSC truly understands that teenagers of varying ages have very different interests, needs, and desires. They also recognize the fact that it's very important for your teen to have the option of mingling and building friendships with others their own age. These age specific needs are exactly why the teen age groups are split into two different cool clubs. Clubs where your teenager can truly be themselves, make quality memories, and build friendships. Night time activities include an iPop Competition, movie trivia, Just Dance, and Karaoke. Even nightly video and music requests! In the daytime they'll enjoy Social Network games, Wii, Dance Contests, Xbox, PS3, and Teenage Spa Treatments. There are even fun weekly events for the teens that include a Flashmob, talent show, a formal night, pool games, and a scavenger hunt. These are just a few of the spectacular activities available to keep your teenager happy and entertained.
As you can see, with MSC there are countless ways to keep all ages of children joyful and relishing their cruise experience. With so many age specific exciting activities available, they will easily find their "niche". With MSC Kids Clubs the parents, grandparents, adults, can sit back and relax as they can feel secure in the knowledge that their cruise is filled with enjoyment for the entire family. Bon Voyage!
