Regent Seven Seas Cruises – Club Mariner Youth Program
Like many cruise lines, Regent Seven Seas Cruises welcome children on board all of their cruises, however there’s not an awful lot of amenities on board that are strictly for children – until the summer holidays roll around that is. Throughout the school summer holidays, Regent employ specially trained staff to run their fantastic Club Mariner Youth Program. Designed to look after children from ages 5-17, a range of specialised activities are on offer to keep your children entertained, including mini-putt tournaments, dance parties, movie nights, treasure hunts, sports and arts and crafts – all whilst you sip a luxury cocktail pool-side.
