What is a family cruise?

Looking for a family cruise that the entire clan get on board with? Forget about the usual routine of school and work, opt instead for adventure, relaxation and quality time aboard a family-friendly cruise ship that’s a destination in itself. Thanks to a boom in multi-generational cruising, cruise lines are now offering innovative programs that bring family members together while also offering age-appropriate entertainment. From water parks to bumper cars, character meets and greets to poolside fun, family fun awaits.

There are so many reasons to book a family cruise. Family-friendly cruise ships show just as much attention to detail when it comes to delighting younger travellers as they do for adult passengers. Children’s play areas have all the latest equipment and the friendliest supervisors so young cruisers can enjoy themselves to the full whilst the adults savour their time together without any distractions. From puppet shows to dance classes, sports days to music sessions, game shows to teenagers karaoke, the facilities aboard are nothing short of dazzling.

Where can you sail on a family cruise?

When planning your family cruise, picking a great destination is just as important as choosing the most suitable cruise line. The Mediterranean, with its beautiful beaches and delicious cuisine, is a popular family cruise destination. Explore the charming Canary Islands, the passionate, sophisticated and diverse atmosphere of Spain or delve deep into Portugal’s ancient history and medieval charm. Travel to Northern Europe to discover the enchantment of The Netherlands, fall in love with the most romantic country in the world, France, or head to Iceland, the land of volcanoes, hot springs and the world’s most northerly capital. For sunnier climes, take the whole family to the Caribbean. Enjoy the beauty of Barbados, the calming culture of Cuba or the scorching sun of St. Lucia.

Which cruise lines offer family cruises?

The oldest cruise line in the world, P&O Cruises is a firm favourite with the British cruising market. Though P&O may not initially spring to mind when planning a family cruise, the line offers fun for all; a selection of child-friendly shore excursions, excellent kids clubs for children aged 2 to 17, an abundance of group activities including karaoke, board games, deck games, mini-golf and table tennis as well as swimming pools, jacuzzis and splash areas for the little ones. Princess Cruises offers a voyage like no other. Journeying to over 380 destinations around the world, the cruise line offers unique, immersive experiences for the whole family both on board and at shore. Royal Caribbean wins the title for best family cruise line hands down. With the biggest and boldest ships, the cruise line pairs innovative ideas with one-of-a-kind activities not found elsewhere. Ice rinks, basketballs courts, rock climbing walls, escape rooms, laser tag and much, much more keep the whole family occupied during voyages to all four corners of the world.
