Cunard Family Cruises
Children have not been forgotten and facilities on board Queen Elizabeth, Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria are among the finest afloat. The Play Zone and The Zone feature the very latest equipment for children of all ages, a permanent staff and nursery nurses.
Young guests ages 1-6 years will find The Play Zone a dedicated, fun area all of their own. The Play Zone features a nursery for infants/ toddlers, video games and movies, a secure outdoor area and a multi-purpose activity area.
The Night Nursery is a quiet area created to enable an infant to sleep. It is open from 6.00pm to 11.00pm. This facility is available to children aged 6 months to 23 months and operates on a first come first served basis. In order to avoid waking other children we kindly ask you to settle your children before bringing them to the Night Nursery and ensure that they are settled to sleep before leaving them. Please ensure you sign your child both in and out with the Nursery Staff on duty and that you inform them of your whereabouts throughout the evening. You will also receive a pager should we need to contact you. This service is complimentary and is offered on a first come, first served basis.
Children ages 7-12 years will enjoy The Zone, where they will find video game stations, air hockey, table football, discos, karaoke, arts and crafts and a lounge area with two 42" plasma screens for videos and movies.
The Teen Zone is a program for 13 to 17 year olds. Activities will include table tennis tournaments, deck sports, discos, quizzes and much more to keep the younger guests occupied for the whole holiday.
Both youth/teen venues will be available free of charge until 11:00pm each evening and will be overseen by qualified British nannies as well as youth and teen coordinators.
There are ‘sign in’ and ‘sign ‘out’ procedures for the 2-12 year olds including a registration form which must be completed for every child before they attend the program and even if your child will not be attending the child/children clubs. We recommend that you attend one of the initial registration sessions on embarkation day so your child can be registered from the first session. Please make sure parents/guardians who are collecting the child have their shipboard ID available for inspection. Children under the age of 18 may NOT sign out your younger children.
Children aged 2-12 will be required to wear a safety wristband on all voyages. This is to ensure that they can be correctly identified and returned to parents should it be necessary.
Important: Before your children join The Zone, they need to fill out a registration form, which will be available straight after the boat drill, on the first day of the voyage, so the children do not miss out on any of the fun!
