As we say: if the children are happy, the parents are happy too.
Approx. 10,000 children travel on the Baltic routes per year, and this number is growing. So to be on trend and keep focus on our little travellers, this year the on-board service team added some extra initiatives dedicated to children.
Irina Matulienė of the on-board marketing and communication team says: “Starting from the Easter period, all children aged 4-12 receive special welcome packs with various funny and educational games according to their age. Besides, on International Children’s Day on 9 June, for the first time a children’s entertainer ‘pirate’ was invited on board the Klaipėda – Kiel ferries to create even more positive emotions and great experiences with DFDS for the little ones. We got a lot of positive feedback from parents and therefore we decided to book eight round trips with children’s entertainers on the Klaipėda – Kiel route during July and August.”
“On these round trips, we had 620 kids on board who all had a wonderful time. The entertainers were dressed as pirates and organised a really nice varied children’s programme with a treasure hunt with prizes for the kids. The parents were also very pleased with the activities and participated in many of them together with their children. We think this initiative works very well and we plan to invite entertainers on board again for the next high season.”
