Costa Cruises Children’s Program

Costa Cruises 


Infants must be at least six (6) months of age at the time of embarkation to sail. Infants must be at least 12 months of age at the time of embarkation to sail on transatlantic cruises, World Cruises, cruises of 15 days or longer duration, and any other itinerary which may in the opinion of Costa Cruises present serious risk to infants in need of emergency medical care.


There is group babysitting for kids 3 to 11 years old, from 11:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. The service requires parents sign up at least 24 hours in advance and is free.

No in-cabin babysitting is available.

Infants and Toddlers (0–3 years)

Children must be at least three years old to participate in Costa Cruises’ children’s program. Children under the age of three are allowed to enter and stay in the children’s area only during certain times (not during busy times in high season) and must be accompanied by an adult.

The Squok Club

A Mini Club for children over 3 years (not requiring diapers). It’s not school and it’s not babysitting, it’s entertainment!

Your kids won’t have a dull moment during a Costa cruise. And you can indulge in all the relaxation you deserve from a vacation! They’ll never have a moment’s pause between parties, games in the pool, tasty snacks, dancing together and mini tournaments. The Costa entertainment team knows how to hold their interest with many stimulating activities. On board, the Squok Club is divided into age groups: the Mini, for 3 to 6 years, with special Peppa Pig-themed activities, and the Maxi Club, from ages 7 to 11. So everybody has fun together with friends. The highlight of the entertainment aimed at children is that it’s open all day (from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m.) so that while the young tourists are busy at the kids’ club, their parents can enjoy a trip or a romantic dinner. On many ships, the Squok Club area has a baby pool, water games, a pirate ship and castle.

Teen Club

Teens can experience the cruise with their peers with non-stop fun and always accompanied by Costa staff. Fun for everyone. That’s why teens (ages 12 to 17) have their own Teen Club, divided into two age groups: Teen Club Junior (ages 12-14) and Teen Club (ages 15-17). These age groups help to create new friendships and the opportunity for your children to enjoy their vacation to the fullest. Many fun events. Among the most popular events are the dance and music classes, sports tournaments, pool parties with a midnight swim, disco games and themed dinners.
