Family Cruise Holidays

Family-friendly cruise lines like Princess Cruises, P&O Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, Carnival Cruise Line, MSC Cruises create supervised kids programs where they split the children into age-specific groups for toddlers up to teenagers with activities that are tailored to each age group, from arts and crafts, play areas, scavenger hunts, slides and dance parties and cooking competitions, to keep your young ones bustling with excitement. Kids will be thrilled with teddy bear parties, “meet and greet” events where animals are brought onboard. Princess cruises provides families the opportunity to be part of a live-theatre audience, and even get to participate in a musical competition onboard- this gives families time to bond and create magic.

Kids clubs have flexible hours allowing you to pick up and drop them off at any time during opening hours, or if they are old enough, they can come and go as they please. Parents fancy a night to themselves? Most cruise lines have you covered with after hour babysitting services for a small fee. Our family cruise deals provide everyone with a holiday to suit them. 


Any of your family members have a special dietary need? Cruise lines do have a wide range of cuisine options including kids’ menu. Have special family dinners and try out new regional cuisines- there’s something for everyone’s taste buds. P&O caters for your kids dining while you connect with other cruisers; there’s a special children’s tea every night where kids are served with their favourites and a dash of healthy food options as well. On Norwegian, kids from 0-3 years can eat as much as they want for free, while they offer complimentary food menu option for kids of ages 4-12. MSC Cruises offers special Teens Card so your kids can have freedom to have fun on their own, it comes in prepaid options so you can set a supervised spend limit.


There are staterooms to accommodate your family holiday budget. 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 8 guests. Fancy private, indoor fun? Royal Caribbean cruise lines have family suites with your own in-suite slide, air hockey and table tennis, let the fun continue! You do not have to worry about doing the kid’s laundry on Princess cruises as they have a special laundry service for kids aged 0-6 years old.

It’s all about your preference on Carnival Cruise Line- you get customized staterooms with unique preferences of your choice, an extra bathroom in the family staterooms so you don’t have to deal with bathroom queues and also accessible rooms for guests with special needs.
