Discounted Shore Excursions:
There’s so much you’ll want to share on MSC’s shore excursions, whether it’s hiking to a waterfall in a tropical rainforest or visiting castles in Europe. That’s why MSC offers a discount of up to 30% on shore excursions for kids 14 and under. Or if you want to venture out on your own, MSC offers a port time Mini Club service for parents. With one day prior notice, you can simply sign your children ages 3 through 6 into the well-supervised Mini Club, while you go on a shore excursion.
Food just for kids
Kids love MSC’s All-American and Italian specialties, such as fresh pizza, pasta and cheeseburgers. MSC also offers out-of-the-ordinary selections, from squid rings to potato gnocchi with pesto sauce. For dessert your kids can dive into homemade ice cream with fruit, chocolate cake or other delicious choices. Special themed kids menus, such as a Pirates menu, Space menu, Dinosaur menu and more, are available in the main dining room each evening. MSC also offers the "Happy Dinner" concept where kids will be served first and then picked up by the Entertainment Staff so the parents can continue to enjoy their meal in the dining room. And remember, dining is included with your cruise, making your whole vacation even more affordable.
Sometimes only an ice-cold soft drink or fruit juice will satisfy the young ones. That’s when a pre-purchased soft drink package comes in handy – it includes 14 cans or large fountain drinks for one low price. Now that’s refreshing.
MSC’s Teen Club is the perfect place for kids 12-17 to meet and have a good time with planned activities and parties. Or they can chill out in the virtual game arcade. The Fantasia-class ships also feature a teen disco with dancing and karaoke, a 4-D interactive cinema, and the thrills of the Formula 1 racing simulator and mini bowling alleys. Older teens may even enjoy an authentic Italian lesson or the Internet café. What’s more, parents can purchase a My Teen Card, so kids from 12 to 17 can make pre-paid purchases on board.
