5 reasons to enjoy a Family Cruise with MSC Cruises
At MSC Cruises we provide a journey of a lifetime for everyone including children! All our vessels are designed to entertain and educate children offering parents time to relax and rejuvenate. We have water parks with splash zones, exciting excursions, family cabins, family dining, baby care and kid’s clubs which are packed with fun activities. Don’t just take our word for it! – In 2018 we were named the Best Family Cruise Line at the Wave Awards and at the 2017 Cruise Critic's Editors' Picks Awards.
1. Family and Friend locator At MSC Cruises we understand the realities of cruising with a large group of family or friends! We’ve introduced our Family and Friends locator to solve this conundrum. You can relax in the knowledge that your kids will never get lost. The MSC for Me wristband uses Bluetooth Low Energy technology and families and friends travelling together can locate one another on the ship map displayed on their MSC for Me app. It is the ideal way for guests to familiarise themselves with their surroundings and at the same time keep an eye out for their children! This technology can currently be found on MSC Grandiosa and MSC Seaside; it will be rolled out across our entire fleet in the coming years.
2. Kids activities MSC Grandiosa will sail in November 2019 – and with 350,000 children being welcomed on board our ships each year – we have ensured that this magnificent vessel is packed with exhilarating entertainment! Brand new activities include MSC Dance Crew, The Drone Academy, Spy Mission and a new web series. MSC Dance Crew was created after we teamed up with the production company that produced the X-Factor! The competition sees teens compete to claim the prestigious title of dance crew of the year. By night, our younger crew members can discover the Drone Academy. This adrenaline inducing activity will see guests race drones through an indoor obstacle course in our Sportsplex venue. There will be a mystery to solve with our immersive Spy Mission which sees younger guests following clues throughout the ship! The mystery does not stop there! Early 2020, teens will watch another adventure unfold during our brand-new web-series, Cabin 12006.
3. Family Explorer Club The MSC Family Explorer Club will create special memories that the whole family can share. Adults and children will be captivated by our expert guides and talented storytellers who are born entertainers. They bring the attractions and history of the locations alive! Children can jump into full explorer mode where they will accomplish a unique mission that is inspired by the location’s history – parents can use their imaginations too! But we understand the importance of adult time so we offer a complimentary service where children between the ages of 3-11 can enjoy our Mini Club instead!
4. A club for all our patrons! MSC Cruises is genuinely a family company! We understand the diverse needs of children and parents which is why all our vessels have a range of kids’ clubs from toddlers to teens – many of which are developed with LEGO® and Chicco! For our smallest guests on board we have Baby Club 0-2 where they can learn music, rhythm and play with a host of toys. Mini Club 3-6 is a hub for creativity where children can play with a range of LEGO® bricks. Junior Club 7-11 and Young Club 12-14 are packed with exciting activities and are filled with opportunities to make new friends! Teen Club 15-17 is the ideal place to hang out and partake in an extensive roster of themed events!
The range of activities offered on our cruises is unaparelled. MSC Seaview and MSC Grandiosa offer the latest in kids ‘entertainment options – the two vessels will transport the whole family to charming destinations like South America and the Mediterranean. We invite you to discover pleasant surprises onboard our cruises while experiencing a family trip of a lifetime!
