Seven Seas Mariner for Families

Editor Rating
Families
3.0

Like many luxury cruise ships, Seven Seas Mariner appeals mainly to sophisticated older adults.

However, RSSC has not been slow to notice growing demand for multigenerational travel as, increasingly, those adults -- many of them well-heeled retirees -- choose to spend their holidays enjoying quality time with grandchildren and their parents.

As such, children are now welcome on any sailing, though there are age restrictions.

The ship cannot accommodate infants younger than 1 year old and won't accept reservations from women who will be more than six months pregnant by the end of their cruise. Nor does the ship offer any in-cabin baby-sitting.

Older children can travel anytime at the relevant child fare, but realistically there's not much for them to do onboard outside of the summer months.

The main school holidays, however, are another matter; at that time, extra childcare staff are employed to run Club Mariner, a youth program designed to cater to three distinct age groups: 5 to 8, 9 to 12 and 13 to 17.

Activities -- which include dance parties, movie parties, scavenger hunts and challenges, scrapbooking, sports tournaments and arts and crafts lessons -- generally extend from June until late August and are carefully designed to appeal to each age group while keeping youngsters entertained and captivated. (That's generally good news for the adults onboard, whether or not they have youngsters in tow.)
