Thomson Celebration Family
Thomson is a family-friendly company, and although the ship doesn't have an expansive area for youngsters, there is a dedicated Kidzone on Deck 5, close to the card room. It offers a daily programme of arts, crafts and games for children and free group babysitting in the evenings. There are three clubs, split into age ranges – Tots (3 – 5), Team (6 – 8) and Tribe (9 – 12). There is no teen programme. The Kidzone is usually open from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m., even if only a handful of children are on board. The numbers swell during the school holidays.
