MSC Cruises is enhancing its renowned kids and family program this summer with new entertainment options and services, ensuring memorable experiences for guests of all ages.

Starting this summer, MSC will offer an expanded range of activities and services for families, including longer hours for kids clubs, additional family game shows, and new services for babies.

New activities and services this summer include:

Extended Baby Care Services: For the first time, MSC will provide dedicated baby care services for infants as young as 6 months old. Previously available only for those aged one year or older, this extended service allows parents to enjoy the ship while their children are cared for by trained staff. These services, offered in collaboration with Chicco, ensure that all youth staff are equipped to meet the needs of babies aged six months to two years.

Doremiland Open House and Party: Parents can now spend quality time with their children in the kids' club during reserved open house hours each day. Additionally, there will be a family party once per cruise, allowing parents and kids to play together.

New MSC Original Family Game Shows: Following the success of shows like MasterChef at Sea Juniors, Break the Wall, and MSC Dance Crew, MSC Cruises is introducing two new family game shows: “World Quest,” a geography-based trivia game, and “Caravaggio,” an art-themed spy game show.

Extended Club Hours for Teenagers: Club hours for guests aged 12 to 17 have been extended, offering more fun throughout the cruise. The club will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. to midnight on sea days, and from 3:00 p.m. to midnight on port days.

Guinness World Record Activities: Following successful trials, Guinness World Record activities will now be available on multiple MSC ships, including World Europa, Euribia, Seascape, Seashore, Magnifica, Divina, Meraviglia, Virtuosa, and Grandiosa. Families can participate in record-breaking quiz shows and win prizes.

MSC Foundation Day: Families can participate daily in exclusive children’s activities in collaboration with the MSC Foundation, focusing on marine conservation initiatives. These one-hour sessions will allow children to learn about environmental topics, create, and express themselves based on their interests.

These enhancements reflect the company's commitment to providing a comprehensive and engaging experience for families onboard their ships.
