Keeping the kids happy during your ferry crossing is something we take seriously.

Amusing our younger customers en route to enjoying family holidays can often be the secret to successful and stress-free family breaks. For your little ones we have a variety of activities, including play areas and quieter spots for watching videos. During the summer holidays when many people take their family breaks, you will find children's entertainers onboard and our own specially trained staff, to encourage creativity with some supervised painting or drawing within the Junior Kids Club, allowing parents time to sit and enjoy their own space. Children's entertainers are onboard for two round trips on each ship, starting Dover to Calais at 06:40 and finishing Calais to Dover at 17:55 (17th July to 4th September 2013 - subject to demand).

The Junior Kids Club is an entertainment facility for children aged 5-11 years olds and offers the following activities:

  • Children's entertainer to meet and greet families onboard and direct them to the kids area
  • Colouring packs
  • Ballon modelling
  • Painting
  • Face Painting
  • Colouring
  • Arts & crafts
  • Music

Once completed children's work is put on display and certificates are awarded. Pirate Pete might even be available for a photo too! 

Please note: Parents are required to supervise their children at all times.

And for the not so little, we have all the latest and best in video game technology. So if you fancy becoming a world champion surfer, boarder or skier, or simply saving the universe, then our video arcade is definitely worth visiting. Don't forget that our onboard shop is stocked with small toys, games and confectionery - everything that makes family holidays easier. Most children find family breaks that start by ferry really exciting - sightseeing from the deck and exploring the ferry is entertainment in itself.

If you are planning to eat onboard, all our restaurants offer great value for kids.  We have a great choice of food and meal deals to suit all tastes and budgets, helping keep family breaks affordable - check out the kids menu for more information. We are pleased to offer free Heinz baby food for our smallest guests on family holidays; there are four varieties - two main options and two desserts.
