Aurora Family
Children's facilities are on Deck 8 and cater to kids ages two to 17.

The Toybox playroom is for the two to fours, with Jumping Jacks for the five to eights. Both are open from 9 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. and have access to a private pool where the kids can be supervised. A free nursery baby sitting service is available until 2 a.m.

The nine to 12's meet in Quarterdeck, open from 9 a.m. until 11 p.m. -- later if there are a lot of kids onboard, where there are activities including arts and crafts and games and drama. Teens (13 - 17) meet in Decibels, open from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. or later in peak times. There's a non-alcoholic bar and TV and the youth staff lay on late-night discos when there are lots of teens onboard.
