How are child and senior defined?
Children aged 12 years and under must be accompanied by a responsible adult/legal guardian to ensure that the Children’s behaviour is appropriate for other guests within The Royal Yacht. Subject to availability of suitable accommodation, children aged 12 years and under stay free when sharing a room with two adults. The rate for children sharing with two adults is 50% of the individual adult rate. Children in their own room will pay the full adult rate. At the discretion of The Royal Yacht, children may be excluded from certain events or promotions where deemed unsuitable or inappropriate. Please note that the Spa is not suitable for children under 16 years of age and therefore they are not permitted to use the Spa’s facilities. As a result, we would like to offer children under 16 a complimentary pass to Aquasplash swimming pool. Clients must read and follow the conditions of use displayed at such facilities.
We have children; can we get extra beds/cots in the room?
We can accommodate children under 12 years old when sharing with adults. Maximum occupancy in one room is 2 adults and 1 child. One extra bed or cot can be provided in specific room types; please check with reservations.
