“Let your kids get creative with M Crew”

and keep the holiday spirit alive…

  • How to keep your kids busy during the pandemic

    Struggling to keep your little ones entertained in lockdown? Don’t panic – Marella Cruises have called in their onboard kids’ entertainment – M Club – to offer a helping hand. Tailored to 3 to 11-year-olds, M Club is a permanent fixture on all our Marella Cruises ships – aside from adults-only Marella Explorer 2. They host games and arts and crafts sessions, as well as the M Crew Live Kids’ Show in high season. So, how can M Crew help to tide you over until your next cruise?

    While stepping into your home and entertaining the little ones in person might not be on the cards during the COVID-19 pandemic – we know, they’d be heroes if they could do that – M Crew have put their heads together and come up with the next best thing. That is, offering an escape from the everyday and bringing the joy of a cruise holiday to your living room.

    In the spirit of our M Crew’s popular arts and crafts sessions, you can now print off outlines of our entire M Crew cast – Miss Maintenance, Melody Mermaid, Captain Mac, Macho and Quack – and host your own artistic activities at home. Colour in our characters in the classic Marella Cruises colours, or let your youngster’s inner Da Vinci come out with their own custom designs.
