Find Your Perfect Cruise

Can I cruise with children and teenagers?

Whilst it is true that some cruises are adults only, many providers do have cruises that are specially designed to keep families and children entertained. 

There are many family friendly cruise lines providing kids' clubs for all ages, dedicated spaces for teenagers, family swimming pools, Aquaparks, activities and restaurants that cater to the needs of young children.

The kids clubs usually cater for children between the ages of 6 months and 17 years old and are categorised into different age groups.

There are playgroup sessions for 6 months to 3 years, educational and arts and crafts activities for 6 to 11 year olds and much more to keep them entertained.

Many of the Cruise Lines also offer ‘Tween’ clubs separating the younger teens (aged 12 to 14) from the older (15 to 17 year olds). These Teen areas normally have video games, music, movies and other teen-only activities and some are available later into the evening to around 10pm or even later for a small fee.

Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise line both have fantastic facilities for families as do Disney Cruise line where the experience is centred around the kids but still retains elements for the adults to enjoy. MSC Cruises also offer a Kids cruise FREE policy where children sharing a cabin with two adults cruise for FREE only paying port dues and flights, where applicable

Many cruise lines will also offer a babysitting service, normally  so parents can get some time to indulge themselves and staterooms may have extra storage space and be interconnecting so families can stay together.

Some cruise lines do not have restrictions on children but will have little in the way of entertainment to keep younger passengers occupied so it pays to research and find the most appropriate cruise to suit your needs.

Kerri is the best at booking!

Kerri was so lovely & friendly & helpful in booking my holiday to South Africa & Mauritius. It’s a great website with so many destinations & good that solo prices can be found, but a shame that they are always so much more!
