Guests under the age of 21 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. On selected seasonal departures, Guests 21 to 24 years old must have one person at least 25 years old in the same stateroom, who shall be responsible for the under age 25 year old Guest. Guests who are responsible for the supervision of underage Guests shall ensure that they do not purchase, possess or consume alcoholic beverages or violate any other shipboard regulation. The minimum drinking age onboard is 21 years old for cruises departing from U.S. ports and 18 years old for cruises departing from non-U.S. ports. Guests under the age of 18 may not play in the on board casino or use any spa facilities and must be accompanied by a person over 18 on shore excursions. The Guest’s age on the date of sailing determines his or her status for the entire cruise.
Games room: Younger guests can have hours of fun in a pirate ship or giant lego brick room, with a vast assortment of video games.
Shore Excursions: While Costa does not offer shore excursions specifically for children, there are, a number of shore excursion activities well suited to them at special rates.
Family Fun: Kids and their parents can get together and participate in fun activities like karaoke, bingo and even a talent show. These activities are a great opportunity for parents and kids to spend time together and have loads of fun while they’re at it!
While cruising is a vacation for the whole family, Costa also provides quiet time for Mom and Dad. That can be during the day, while the kids are entertained in the Kids Club program, or at night, while the kids are with group baby-sitters. Mini and Maxi Club nighttime group baby-sitting, held in the children’s area, is a free of charge baby-sitting service until 1:30 am.
There is no night time baby-sitting service available for children under 36 months of age.
Costa gives parents traveling with children some time off by organizing two events where kids spend the evening with other guests their age at a fun themed dinner (Squok, Pirates, Circus, Video games world, Halloween, WWF in the Jungle or Underwater) and fun activities designed especially for them. While the kids are being entertained, parents can relax as they enjoy sumptuous cuisine and a romantic evening together, feeling secure that their children are having fun while being supervised by our dedicated Youth Counselors. With this program, parents and children will both be pleased with the variety of shipboard activities and the warmth of Italian Style cruising.
