During the school holidays there are a lot of children onboard. Queen Mary 2 employs nine nannies, which keep children busy during the crossing. There is a dedicated children and teens' area on Deck 6 -- including an outdoor pool area. A children's supper is given nightly in the Chef's Galley from 5 until 6 p.m. (As in England it is called Children's Tea.) And group babysitting is available until midnight.
