We offer a huge selection of family-friendly cruise packages with exciting itineraries to keep you and your loved ones entertained throughout your holiday. Due to the popularity of family cruises, cruise lines go above and beyond to ensure that cruisers of all ages have an unforgettable time on board.

From local to international cruises, there are plenty of options available to suit everyone’s taste. Most cruise lines offer a range of onboard entertainment and activities catered to all family member, so you can decide whether to hang out with your kids or enjoy some adults-only time. With most ships boasting supervised kids clubs and onboard water parks, your little ones will have plenty to explore while you relax by the pool or enjoy a pamper session at the spa.

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’ programs. From toddlers to teenagers, your children will be grouped together with others their own age. These programs 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 theater 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 you 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 taste buds, you can try out new regional cuisines at a special family dinner. On a P&O Australia cruise, you can socialize with other cruisers while your little ones attend a special evening teatime, serving their favorites 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 customizable family staterooms on Carnival Cruise Line ships.
