Series 3: A Seaview Adventure, which launched online today, continues the story of Kelly, Kloe and their ship captain father. In this three-part series, the girls board MSC Cruises’ new flagship, MSC Seaview in an exciting cruise around the Mediterranean.
• In a two-part feature-length episode, Kelly & Kloe find themselves in a whirlwind of drama with two new kids. Whilst all members of the family are enjoying their holiday, things get complicated when love flourishes, but things are never as easy as they may seem.
• In a special episode featuring a guest star, YouTuber Luciano Spinelli comes aboard to teach guests and crew (as well as the Captain) some of the tricks to creating the very best video and photo content of their holiday to show off to their friends the fantastic time they are having aboard
• As the original Kelly & Kloe theme song has proved so popular, MSC Cruises has developed two brand new music videos: one love song and one dance song to be enjoyed by kids of all ages
All storylines in the new series have been developed using ideas submitted by kids during the Kelly & Kloe Experience Day”, and the third series stars 25 MSC Cruises junior guests who auditioned onboard during open casting running since October 2017. These kids, aged 8 to 12 play a number of different roles across the three episodes.
On board, alongside a whole day of activities including karaoke, trivia and dance lesson, MSC Cruises has added the brand new FAMILY GAMESHOW. Taking place in the main theatre every at sea day across the fleet, two teams of families compete in three challenges; ‘dance with me’, ‘play with me’ and ‘guess with me’, to win a host of MSC Cruises prizes – with kids at its heart, the children from the kids club act as the judges.

• The LEGO Experience on-board – a whole day on every cruise itinerary that is dedicated to fun LEGO® activities, which culminates in the children receiving a Jr. LEGO® Master Builder diploma
• DOREBRO – a dedicated sports programme for kids of all ages
• A range of services for babies and toddlers: including the Mini-Club for children under 3 as well as a dedicated childcare service. Many of these services are offered in collaboration with Chicco® – the leading global baby brand and yet another exclusive MSC Cruises partnership.
