Family cruise holidays

A cruise holiday can be one of the best ways to enjoy memorable family time. It’s an exciting holiday with so much to offer, whether it’s just you and the kids, or the whole extended family as well. With Kids clubs, activities, swimming pools and parks, and even unique dining experiences, a cruise holiday makes for the perfect family getaway.

Fun activities for the kids

Many cruise ships offer kids clubs. These clubs cater for groups of young cruisers depending on their age group. There are toddlers clubs where babies are cared for by certified child minders in a fun and engaging way with toys, videos and activities.

Kids are also separated, usually from ages 2-5, 6-8 and 9-11 and are given the opportunity to mingle with their own age group as they play and make new friends while enjoying a variety of games and activities.

From ages 12 to 14, there are also lounges where the tweens can sing karaoke, play video games or play mini-golf and so much more.

For ages 15 to 17, there are discos, lounge areas to watch movies, or just hang out and make new friends.

Family togetherness

On-board many cruise ships there are fun and exciting amenities for the whole family to enjoy. From water parks to in-door ice skating, basketball, swimming pools, and more, there is something for everyone. It’s a place where the young and the young at heart can easily come together and enjoy quality time together while having the time of their lives.

Exciting destinations to visit

A cruise holiday is the best way to explore a variety of wonderful destinations across the world. It’s safe, easy and very convenient, which makes it ideal for a family. From Asia to Europe, Alaska to the Caribbean, your family will love the day excursions as you explore the history, culture and fun things to do on land, no matter where you are.
