Kids Program

Cunard has several fun programs for kids that are fully staffed.

The Night Nursery provides a safe place for infants to sleep. The location is staffed with professionals in the child care field. On all ships, the hours are 6pm to 11pm. Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria accept children 12 months to 23 months, while Queen Mary 2 accepts children as young as 6 months. This service is offered free of charge and on a first come, first serve basis. You will be given a pager should the staff need to contact you.

Available on all three ships, The Play Zone is an area that is permanently supervised by qualified early years staff. Children between 3 years and 7 years are welcome in The Play Zone without parental supervision, while children 6 months to 2 years are welcome with parental supervision. Activities include toys, computer games, arts and crafts, books and puzzles.

The Kids’ Zone is an area for 8 to 17 year olds. There are plenty of activities in The Kids’ Zone, including sports competitions, arts and crafts, gaming consoles and more. This area is available on all ships.

Queen Mary 2 also has an area exclusively for teens 13 through 17 years. The Teen Zone has activities like deck sports, discos, quizzes, gaming consoles and more.

The groups for children aged 13 through 17 overlap on Queen Mary 2, so the exact groupings will depend on the number of children traveling on that particular cruise.

Clubs are open on a daily basis and feature secure entry systems to allow authorized entry. A registration form must be completed for every child before they attend a club. There are sign in and sign out procedures for children who are 2 through 12 years. It is highly recommended for guardians to attend one of the initial registration sessions on embarkation day so the child can be registered from the first session.
