Family holidays stay with you forever, so you want them to be full of quality family time and of course lots of fun. A cruise holiday ticks all of the boxes; plenty of entertainment for the kids day and night, fun activities for the whole family to enjoy together and great childminding and crèche facilities giving you piece of mind when you need some time to relax. Many cruise lines are child-friendly and have their own childcare facilities on board. Plus there are some great offers that make cruising really great value for families, such as free child places and reduced 3rd and 4th passenger fares.


Family Activities: You'll find kids clubs and teen-only discos on most family cruise ships, but a family holiday is also about spending time together. We've rounded up the top activities for the whole family to enjoy on some of our favourite ships. To find out more visit Thomson CruisesRoyal CaribbeanP&O CruisesCarnival CruisesMSC Cruises, and Norwegian Cruise Line for a run-down of facilities on board.

Kids Club: Children of all ages enjoy the kids club on board cruise ships. Not only are they full of fun activities, it's a great chance for them to make new friends and learn new skills, meaning boredom is never an issue and you get to enjoy some peace and quiet!

Family Dining: All family cruise ships have a wide variety of food on offer for the whole family. Many of the main restaurants have kids menus or early kids dinner sittings, and there are treats available throughout the ships from MSC Fantasia's pick 'n' mix to speciality ice cream parlours. On many ships, kids clubs host dinners throughout the week where youngsters can eat and socialise in the buffet restaurant.

Accommodation: Booking the perfect family stateroom on your cruise should not be stressful. All the main cruise lines have family staterooms available, in addition to spacious family suites, complete with living area and private balcony.
