What activities are available for children on board and is there a Children's Club?

Children of all ages are welcome on our ships, and our dedicated clubs offer tailored activities and entertainment. These include arts and crafts, sporting activities, play areas, computer games and much more.  They can make friends with other children at The Play Zone, for two-seven year olds, The Kids' Zone, for eight-12 year olds and The Teen Zone for teenagers 13-17. Please note that for operational reasons, age groups may occasionally be mixed.


Our Youth Team have extensive experience of planning and facilitating activities for two-17 year olds, as well as having an enhanced DBS check. The Youth Staff will supervise your children, organise events, activities and competitions, and even "excursions" to the theatre or cinema on board. Children from six-23 months are welcome to join in the fun, with parental supervision. 

To make use of the youth facilities on board, you must complete a registration form for your child/ren. This can be completed prior to your voyage using My Cunard.

Opening hours

Operating hours are subject to change, dependent on voyage itinerary, the ship and the seasonal period. Hours will be clearly advertised and made available on board through the ship’s Daily Programme

Security features

Our facilities feature secure entry systems to allow authorised entry only. Children aged 12 years and below are required to be checked in and out of their age-specific club by one of their registered carers. This means that only pre-authorised adults will be able to collect your child/ren from the clubs. Please ensure that parents/carers who are collecting the child/ren have their ship ID available for inspection.

Guests under the age of 18 years may not sign children out of the youth facilities.


To protect the health of everyone on board, the following protocols are in place:

  • If we need to operate a reduced service in our children’s club, including closure of the night nursery, impacted guests will be informed directly ahead of their holiday via email.
  • We are currently limiting numbers in the facility at any one time.
  • Children will be allocated cohorts with fixed sessions they can attend throughout the voyage, therefore we recommend booking as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
  • In line with our new health protocols, children who are not toilet trained can participate in the children’s clubs, however parents/guardians will be contacted to attend if assistance is required.  


In our children’s clubs, children will be put into cohorts with scheduled sessions they can join throughout their voyage. Your child will visit the club with the same group of children and only join the sessions scheduled for their cohort. Please note, session availability and length may vary. Our numbers will be limited so we recommend registering on My Cunard before your voyage to avoid disappointment. You can register your child from 15 days before sailing.
