Rock up to The Reef! With age-specific clubs, a night nursery, a boatload of activities and enthusiastic Reef Rangers on hand, The Reef is the place to be for under 18s.

Our exciting free on-board programme for 2–17 year olds is called The Reef. Split into four age groups, there are a whole host of exciting activities organised daily by our enthusiastic and well-qualified Reef Rangers, to keep children of all ages entertained safely throughout the day and evening, and to ensure that they have the chance to make friends of their own age. We really have thought of everything, so why not let us take the stress out of family holidays.

 

Age groups are:

 

Splashers 2-4 year olds - Qualified youth staff provide a full programme of age-specific activities.

 

Surfers 5-8 year olds - Qualified Reef Rangers provide activities, adventure, games and sport coaching sessions.

 

Scubas 9-12 year olds - Children of this age can either join in the organised games with the specialist Reef Rangers or simply hang out with friends in the chill out areas.

Night nursery

The Night Nursery is a complimentary service available for children aged between 6 months and 4 years of age, and is open from 6pm to 2am nightly. The latest time children may be checked in to the Night Nursery is 11pm. A quiet area is created to enable an infant to sleep and parents are contacted via a pager, should their infant wake. Room temperatures and frequent checks are made and recorded.

 

Please note for all kids' clubs including the night nursery, allocation is on a first come first served basis due to limited spaces available.

Connection speed

Being able to access the internet in the middle of the ocean is quite the technological accomplishment. However, due to the fact that the internet signal has to travel via satellites over 20,000 miles above the earth, service speeds are significantly impacted. Even the geographical location of your ship (mountainous landscapes in particular) and the weather can affect the on board service. To maximise your satellite internet service speeds, you'll find the strongest Wi-Fi signal in public venues. You may also find that off peak periods - early morning, late evening and port days - provide a better service.

 

Skype and video calling connections

These services are available with The Works package, however please be aware that unpredictable satellite connectivity can impact the quality of the service.

 

Printing and scanning

Should you wish to print pages in the Library, this will be charged at 30p per black and white page. If you require a document to be digitally scanned, please speak to reception (prices are subject to change).

*Satellite reception permitting. Due to limitations with satellite bandwidth, video streaming may be blocked. Other sites may also be blocked for excessive bandwidth consumption or the types of content offered.

Order internet credit

To purchase package internet credit before you sail visit Cruise Personaliser. Once on board, just log on to the ship’s Wi-Fi.
