Family Cruise Holidays

Family-friendly cruise lines like Princess Cruises, P&O Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, Carnival Cruise Line, and MSC Cruises offer supervised kids’ programmes. From toddlers to teenagers, your children will be grouped together with others their own age. These programmes will entertain your young ones with activities tailored to each age group like arts and crafts, play areas, scavenger hunts, dance parties, and cooking competitions. For some family bonding time and an opportunity to make magic, Princess Cruises invites families to participate in a live theatre audience and a music competition on board.

With flexible hours, kids’ clubs allow you to drop off and pick up your kids at your convenience. And if they’re old enough, they can come and go as they please. If you fancy a night out without the kids, most cruise lines have got your covered with after-hour babysitting services for a small fee. Our family cruise deals have something special for everyone.


Cruise lines prepare a wide range of dining options, including kids’ menus and specials meals for your family members with special dietary needs. With something for everyone’s tastebuds, you can try out new regional cuisines at a special family dinner. On a P&O Australia cruise, you can socialise with other cruisers while your little ones attend a special evening teatime, serving their favourites with some healthy options as well. Kids up to three years old can eat as much as they want for free on Norwegian cruises, and complimentary menu options are available to kids between four and twelve. If you’re cruising with MSC Cruises, you can gift your teenagers with a special Teen Card, so they have the freedom to have their own fun. The card also comes in prepaid options, so you can set a spending limit.


Regardless of your holiday budget, you will find the perfect stateroom to accommodate your family. You and your loved ones can opt for connecting cabins, mini-suites, or one- or two-bedroom family suite options that can accommodate up to eight guests.

The family suites on Royal Caribbean ships come equipped with an in-suite slide, an air hockey table, and table tennis. You won’t need to worry about doing your children’s laundry on Princess cruises as they offer a special laundry service for kids up to six years old. Whether an extra bathroom to avoid queues or accessibility options for guests with special needs, your family can have it their way in the customisable family staterooms on Carnival Cruise Line ships.
