Find A Cruise

Celebrity's Youth & Teen Program

Our award-winning cruise experience is designed for kids, too. There's so much for children and teens to do onboard a Celebrity Cruise. All programs are geared to specific age groups and supervised by experienced youth staff members. Celebrity kids are happy, engaged, and entertained. You'll get all the details once you've boarded, but here's a peek at what's available.

Fun Factory

Happy children equals happy parents. It is a simple equation, but one we find is particularly effective. At the Fun Factory we host activities for your children and teenagers every day from 9am-10pm, with sessions and events organised according to your child’s age. Shipmates is for children aged 3-5; Cadets is for children aged 6-8; Ensigns is for children aged 9-11. Activities include games, sports, crafts, music, karaoke, treasure hunts, theme parties, movies and much, much more. 

X-Club Teen Entertainment

For young adults, Celebrity offers the ultimate hangout place for teens, featuring social activities, the newest gaming consoles and titles, sports activities, even teens-only late night dances. All supervised. All very cool.

Toddler Time for children under 3

Toddler time allows parents and toddlers to interact with other children their age. Staff members provide suitable toys for this age group, including LeapFrog® interactive toys. In accordance with USPH policies and standards, Celebrity has provided each ship with lavatory-based changing tables and baby wipes. Children participating in organised events must be fully potty trained; however, you can accompany your child to any organised activity if they're not.

Party Time

The Fun Factory also offers a number of parties where children can enjoy some extra hours of fun and, for lunch and dinner, dine with our Youth Staff. 

  • Lunch Party: 12-2pm port days only
  • Dinner Party: 5-7pm every evening 
  • Slumber Party: 10pm-1am every evening 

These services are offered on a sign-up basis and are charged at $6 per hour per child. Exceptions: when at sea, or if sailing at or prior to 5PM, the Dinner Party is complimentary. 

Babysitting Services

Parents, enjoy a night out. Use our babysitting services, in both the Fun Factory and in individual staterooms. For a fee of $6 per hour per child, children ages 3-11 can participate in the Afternoon Party from noon-2PM on port days and/or the evening Slumber Party from 10PM-1AM. For a fee of $19 per hour, for up to three children within the same family, parents can arrange for a private, in-stateroom babysitter, subject to availability. Children must be 12 months or older to be eligible for in-stateroom babysitting. Please arrange 24 hours in advance.

Private In-Stateroom Babysitting 

Private in-stateroom babysitting is open to children 12 months and older for a nominal fee of $19/hr. for up to three children from the same family. Requests must be made 24 hours in advance through Guest Relations. Availability for this service is limited and operates on a first come, first served basis. Private, in-stateroom babysitting is subject to personnel availability.

V.I.P. Passes for Kids

Celebrity's V.I.P Pass is a unique opportunity for your child to have unlimited access to all program activities. The one time V.I.P Pass fee offers families over a 40% savings off the cost of individual Lunch, Dinner, and Slumber parties. In addition, V.I.P Pass holders are the only children who will be given special goodie bags and have access to exclusive experiences like a behind-the-scenes ship tour. An additional charge applies.
