Kids get looked after with MSC Cruises
MSC Cruises has revamped its Kids Club offering to satisfy all age groups, and now features four separate programs: the Mini Club (3-6 years), Junior Club (7-11years), the Y Team (12-14 years) and MSC Generation Teen Club (15-17 years).
Extended hours for operation of the Mini and Junior Clubs have also been put in place (9am-11pm); whilst sporting tournaments, parades, dance competitions and parties will also be on offer for kids with bags of energy.
The choice of games onboard has been expanded, with teen areas now equipped with XBox Kinetics and Nintendo Wiis. Kids who love to write or draw can now also contribute to the new kids' newspaper; whilst children under 12 and their families can enjoy a special theatre performance featuring characters such as Cinderella and Tarzan. Staff onboard MSC Vessels will also host a 'nanny's hour' program for children aged 10 to 36 months, where they will organise games and activities.
MSC Cruises has also increased its staff to children ratio and has established new criteria for the hiring of counsellors (including the requirement of a college degree in recreation or child care, or equivalent experience); whilst new dedicated welcome desks for security bracelets have been set up, and pagers and beepers will be available for rent for guests with children who are 3 to 5 years old, or who have medical conditions or special needs.
