We received a PLAYMOBIL Cruise Ship to facilitate this review; however, all opinions are our own. Additionally, the manufacturer suggests this toy for children ages 6-10. Amelia is 18-months old and plays with this toy while supervised and with all items that could pose a choking hazard removed until she’s older.
Who hasn’t dreamed of adventures on the high seas? Now, kids can set sail for adventure on this amazing PLAYMOBIL Cruise Ship! Not only does this toy look fabulous, but with features like the lower deck pullouts, it’s the perfect stage for a whole lot of imaginative play!
Your child will love the easy access to the cabin area where she can create and act out her imaginative stories. The guestrooms are decked out like real ones with beds, a private bathroom, and a sitting area.
On deck, the removable roof makes it easier to enjoy all of the cool features topside. The pool can be filled with water, and there’s a slide into it from the sundeck! There are deck chairs to enjoy the view and restaurants for snacks. The lifeboat really floats and can be upgraded (see below) with a motor!
What We LOVE About the PLAYMOBIL Cruise Ship
While the PLAYMOBIL Cruise Ship was created for children from the ages of six and ten, younger children like Amelia can enjoy it too with adult supervision. She loves to move the people around the ship, run furniture around the deck as if they’re cars, and generally just have a great time being a toddler with a massive cruise ship. Dad loves playing with her and acting out stories of the Panama Canal cruise he took a few years ago. He also tells her about the journey he’ll take her on one day!
We love that the PLAYMOBIL Cruise Ship can be enjoyed by the whole family and that there are accessories and add-on’s to extend the play. There are also additional sets that are perfectly compatible! Take the cruise ship to port and check out the water activities, beaches, restaurants, and even a beach house! The quality and imaginative play afforded by this brand is stellar! I’m obsessed with looking through the PLAYMOBIL website for more of their beautiful sets and wonder how it is that I’ve never spent time exploring all that PLAYMOBIL has to offer.
About the PLAYMOBIL Cruise Ship

The PLAYMOBIL Cruise Ship does require adult assembly – an instruction manual included or get them online here – so set aside about two hours to complete the task. When assembled, the cruise ship is HUGE! It’s 29.53″ long x 14.17″ wide x 12.99″ high and weighs 9.17 lbs. Warning. Choking Hazard. Small parts. Not for children under three years.
Upgrades for the PLAYMOBIL Cruise Ship
Yes, you can make this toy even cooler! Purchase the PLAYMOBIL 7350 Underwater Motor to give the lifeboat the power to go underway on its own. You can also buy PLAYMOBIL Singer with Stage (9165) to provide some real entertainment or add PLAYMOBIL 9216 Cruise Ship Officers for additional people. We’ve added additional sets we think coordinate beautifully with this one and extend the play opportunity.
