Kids

Club HAL, with separate facilities for kids ages 3 to 7 and 8 to 12, is open on sea days from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. On ports days, it's open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. After-hours baby-sitting is available for $5 an hour per child. Age-appropriate activities, like coloring contests and story time are structured for the little ones. The older kids can participate in cooking classes, among other activities.
