Celebrity Cruises has taken a creative leap toward enhancing its onboard activities for kids of all ages by working with LeapFrog SchoolHouse to provide engaging, multisensory learning tools and instruction that align with Celebrity's travel itineraries around the world. Shipboard youth programs typically are designed to provide kids with fun activities while cruising, but Celebrity's goal is to go beyond that concept, providing kids with an environment where they can learn while also having a great time.
Widely recognized for their interactive, electronic education programs and products for the pre-kindergarten through grade 8 education market, LeapFrog SchoolHouse's writers and editors have worked with Celebrity to make available onboard a variety of their most popular products, and created six exclusive educational modules for children ages 3 through 9.
The new programming onboard focuses on topics including dinosaurs, science and space, sports, the world, art and music, and wildlife. Additional activities tailored to specific Celebrity itineraries also have been developed to enlighten and entertain children on the heritage, customs, crafts, art, and music of Alaska, Bermuda, the Caribbean, Mexico, and the Mediterranean-all regions where Celebrity generally attracts a higher percentage of families traveling with children.
