Oh! to be a Costa Kid...
Some of the best things come in small packages - and that's certainly the case with Costa's Kids Program. From pizza parties and pirate treasure hunts to face painting, masquerades, and even Italian lessons, supervised activities like these are all in a day's play for kids lucky enough to cruise with Costa. And that means you and your family can enjoy all the fun of Cruising Italian Style. Morning, afternoon and evening events are scheduled to entertain children from 3 (out of diapers) to 17. Whether it's an ice cream social or a karaoke contest, Costa knows how to keep kids busy... and they weren't kidding.
Costa Kids is designed to accommodate children between the ages of 3 (out of diapers) and 12 years. It is an interactive program comprised of daily activities scheduled to entertain, enliven and amuse kids. It is not a baby/children sitting service.
Costa Teens is designed to accommodate children between the ages of 13 and 17 years. Please note that due to the lack of demand, this program does not operate on all Costa sailings.
The Costa Kids program will accommodate children between the ages of 3 to 6, 7 to 10 and Teens during normal cruises and between the ages of 3 to 6, 7 to 12 and 13 - 19 during Holiday Cruises.
Activities for Costa Kids of All Ages
Costa Kids will find a wealth of activities to keep them busy while at sea or while in port. Just check out these sample activities offered on Costa Cruise Ships.
There is no charge for these activities and a Costa Kids and a Costa Teens Cruise Program will be distributed to parents upon embarkation and registration.
