Crystal Family Cruises
The Crystal Serenity and the Crystal Symphony feature a fully supervised Junior Activities program for kids between the ages of 3 and 17 on Holiday voyages and nearly all summer sailings, each with dedicated play areas for both young kids and teens. Children are supervised during their activities with the Junior Activities Directors, and children with parents’ permission are free to come and go as they please. The Junior Activities program is not intended to be utilized as a babysitting service or daycare facility. Children under the age of the 3 must be supervised by a parent or guardian at all times.
Fantasia welcomes children ages 3-12, with games, crafts, popular Sony PlayStation® and Xbox 360™ kiosks and large-screen televisions, board games and personal computers with entertainment and education. A video arcade at Waves keeps teens ages 13-17 entertained as well. The Library offers a selection of children's books and videos for in-room viewing; children can also see recently released films in The Hollywood Theatre.
On sailings with a Junior Activities Director, children receive their own daily newsletter – Surf Runner or Teen Scene, depending on their age – letting them know of the next day’s adventures. The hours of operation vary depending on the itinerary and number of children on board.

Kids of all ages will enjoy our special Junior Cruiser's menu, and Crystal's executive chefs and culinary staff are always pleased to prepare custom dishes. The Trident Grill serves complimentary hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza and more.
On all sailings and depending on demand, in-stateroom babysitting services for children 1 year and older are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Fees apply. Arrangements can be made through the Concierge located at the Reception Desk. We kindly ask that should you require babysitting services, one day’s notice would be greatly appreciated. Fees are $10 per hour for one child, $15 per hour for two children and $20 per hour for three children. For safety reasons, the maximum number of children/babies watched by one babysitter is three; babysitting services are not permitted for children under the age of 1 or overnight.
