Tips for a happy cruising holiday with your little ones

We’re waiting for you with open arms!

You’ll feel completely at home with endless opportunities to relax and be entertained. We’re all here, on board, ready to make your holiday the most relaxing and exciting you could imagine.

Your little boy or girl is about to start a fantastic voyage and we’re ready to welcome them on board, taking the utmost care of them and showering them with attention, to make this holiday as good for them as it will be for you!


We have put our hearts and souls into planning every detail of the cruise for your little ones. Because at MSC Cruises we too are parents, aunts and uncles, grandmothers and grandfathers…

We’ve designed it for your children, for children all over the world, as if they were our own.
We asked the Osservatorio Chicco, Baby Research Center, to partner with MSC to offer you a holiday that is “tailormade for babies”.
But we know that mums and dads are entitled to a holiday too, and a cruise on our fabulous, welcoming ships, offers this in more ways than one

New Tasty Delights

  • Children's menu
    For older children, you’ll find a wide selection of dishes on the “Children’s Menu” to help your child learn to explore tastes, flavours and colours like a real “baby gourmet”. Varied and colourful menus, with a special selection of healthy and tasty dishes to keep our youngest guests happy. Every day, the smell of fresh bread baked in our on-board bakery will waft past you.


    You’ll find the best pizza at sea, cooked to perfection with top quality ingredients! All together at the table, enjoying the happiness that food brings and with no time limits, as the Buffet is open 20 hours a day.
  • And for your babies?
    Bottle warmers are available in specific places on all our ships: contact Reception – Guest Service for information once you’re on board.
    If your baby is being weaned, all you need to bring is your child’s favourite baby food. Pasta soup, chicken breast and thin grilled steak, ham, cheese and desserts are available in the restaurant every day.
  • Baby chef
    Cooking is fun as well: Baby Chef, for 2-to-3-year olds. A dedicated area for them to get messy in the kitchen during the highly successful Doremi Chef event.
    Just think: supervised by the Chef and their parents, the kids will prepare a tasty pizza! Doesn’t that sound great?

Naps and Cuddles

  • The bedtime routine
    Being able to sleep in a cot beside peaceful and relaxed parents helps children remain calm, because they can sense their comforting presence and surrender to sleep more easily.

  • Naps
    If you haven’t travelled on a cruise with us before, you will be amazed by our cabins – real hotel rooms – because of their incredible comfort and well-organised space. Whichever type you choose – Balcony cabin, Ocean View cabin, Inside cabin – you’ll find the same facilities and service.
  • Leave the cuddles to us!
    Every member of our crew smiling and helpful, will put their heart into looking after you. You can turn to them for anything you need and you’ll find them ready to make your wishes come true. And, at last, mum you can stop thinking about everything as usual and treat yourself to some valuable “me time”. Discovering the real luxury of having time to yourself!
