Cruising with Kids! MSC Cruises' New Programs make Family Travel even more Fun

  • Brand new DOREBRO sports program;
  • New kids cooking class in collaboration with Michelin-starred chef Carlo Cracco; and
  • Exclusive LEGO® MSC Cruises ship toy


Every family planning a vacation knows how important it is to keep the youngest members of the family entertained so everyone has a relaxing holiday.  MSC Cruises is enhancing their kids activities and programs even more with brand name partnerships kids will love… and parents will too.


Across its entire fleet MSC Cruises already provides a very extensive offering for family vacations, including:

  • Dedicated clubs for each age group, as well as daily entertainment for all ages;
  • Family dining options;
  • Modern and fun-filled on-board facilities such as aqua parks and pools, bowling alleys and 4D cinemas; and
  • Dedicated shore activities designed with the needs of the entire family in mind.





NEW: Kids' Culinary Class From a Michelin-Starred Chef:

Alongside this addition, starting this summer season, MSC Cruises has also introduced “DOREMI Chef by Carlo Cracco,” a cooking class designed in collaboration with the two-starred Michelin chef Carlo Cracco. Led by MSC Cruises chefs and the on-board MSC Cruises mascot DOREMI, children aged 3 to 11 will learn, amongst other recipes, how to make homemade pasta from scratch while receiving plenty of cooking hints and tips from the globally renowned chef. Upon completion of the course, each child will receive an official mini-chef certificate signed by Carlo Cracco himself.


MSC Cruises offers its guests a wide range of on-board entertainment especially for kids, developed in collaboration with the LEGO Group, the world’s leading toy producer. As part of this ongoing relationship, LEGO Group has recently launched a very special LEGO® MSC Cruises toy of the upcoming MSC Meraviglia, the company’s new next-generation smart cruise ship that launches in June 2017 and will sail the Mediterranean for its inaugural season.

This toy LEGO model – which is available for sale fleet wide at the on-board MSC Cruises Logo shop – will make the perfect souvenir for children who can then relive their MSC Cruises family vacation at home in a fun and creative way.

As part of ‘The LEGO Experience’ on-board, families can expect a whole day on every cruise itinerary that is dedicated to LEGO® activities. The experience includes a program of activities, which have been specifically developed in collaboration with the LEGO Group to offer something for children of all ages, including:

  • DUPLO® Play Pen: a construction challenge for children under the age of three
  • Building Happening: two separate challenges for children aged six to eleven to build the most elaborate structure
  • LEGO® Vertical Play Wall: a challenge where two teams compete to build a vertical structure against a specially created wall
  • LEGO® Tech Challenge: a special area containing all of the latest games consoles to play LEGO videogames


At the end of the day, children will graduate with a LEGO diploma and be presented with a souvenir certificate by the LEGO Sailor mascot – verifying that they are now a Junior Master Builder.


NEW: Sports:

New this summer is the DOREBRO sports program, an on-board entertainment innovation designed especially for kids who love sports. Children and teens aged from 3 to 17 years old can join the program, which is now available on most MSC Cruises ships sailing in the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. The program offers an exciting variety of sports and active games for all levels, broken down in two daily sessions, with activities designed for the different age groups The program has been designed in collaboration with King’s Active, the UK-based company expert in designing engaging and fun youth activities to inspire sports stars of the future.


And for the Youngest Members of the Family:

MSC Cruises also offers a range of services for babies and young children including the Mini-Club for children under 3 as well as a dedicated childcare service giving parents the freedom to enjoy the ship, safe in the knowledge that their children are being cared for by dedicated and highly trained staff. Many of these services are offered in collaboration with Chicco® – the leading global baby brand and yet another exclusive MSC Cruises partnership.
