Celebrity Cruises Children's Programs Overview

Celebrity_kids_arcadeCelebrity Cruises features a wide variety of age appropriate youth activities through the X-Club Youth Programs. There is so much for kids to do onboard a Celebrity Cruise ship and Celebrity makes it easy for them to connect with people their own age in a safe and fun environment. For the adults, this means the peace of mind and a little extra time for couples to reconnect as well. However, while there are plenty of ways for the kids to "do their own thing", there is ample opportunity for family time as well.

Celebrity's X-Club Youth Program is divided into groups based on age ranges:

  • Admiral Teens(ages 12-17),
  • Ensigns(ages 9-11),
  • Celebrity Cadets(ages 6-8),
  • Ship Mates(ages 3-5)
  • Toddler Time(for the under 3 years old cruisers)

Qualification of Kid's Program Staff

Each group in the Celebrity Youth program has their own counselors overseeing the activities, their own dedicated space, and age–appropriate planned activities for their group. Counselors have formal education in Child Development, Education, Recreation or related areas and also have experiences handling groups of kids ages 3-17.They are also trained in CPR and some speak German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and French.

This information is provided as a general overview. It is best to verify the availability of services with the Celebrity Youth Program Staff for current pricing and operating hours once you are onboard.
