Infinity's kids' club is located at the forward end of Deck 11, by the Constellation Lounge, and it has programs for kids ages 3 to 17. Participation in the kids' program is complimentary (with some exceptions) and is broken nicely into compatible age groups. The Fun Factory is one complex split into three rooms, with sections for Shipmates (3- to 5-year-olds), Cadets (6 to 8) and Ensigns (9 to 11), and the X Club is the two-story teen (12 to 17) hangout. Potty-trained children are welcomed from age 3; non-potty-trained toddlers can play in the Fun Factory with their parents at designated times. (Infants who sail must be at least 6 months old as of the first day of the cruise. However, for transatlantic, transpacific, select South America and other select cruises, infants must be at least 12 months old.)
Age-appropriate activities are available for each group, and trained counselors are in attendance. The Fun Factory is outfitted with Xbox Kinect gaming stations, TVs for movie watching and an array of props for games, crafts and fun-yet-educational activities. Such activities include hands-on cooking classes, games like Apples to Apples and UNO, making sand art and suncatchers, and treasure hunts, as well as whole-family activities like bingo, trivia and a family disco party. Complimentary activities run from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. with breaks from noon to 2 p.m. and from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Complimentary teen activities run until 1 a.m. The X Club teen lounge offers a lounge area, foosball and Xbox.
It's $6 per hour, per child (ages 3 to 11), to participate in the "Lunch Party" from noon to 2 p.m. or the "Dinner Party" from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on port days (no fee on sea days). You must sign up your kids in advance.
After hours, the nighttime Slumber Party from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. daily also costs $6 per hour, per child. In-cabin baby-sitting is available for $19 per hour for up to three children (12 months minimum) within the same family, depending on staff availability, as two crewmembers are required. Book at least 24 hours in advance at the passenger relations desk.
Parents can also purchase VIP Passes for their kids. The VIP Pass offers discounts on Lunch, Dinner and Slumber Party costs; goodie bags for the kids to keep; and exclusive events, such as a bridge tour and backstage tour.
