Cruising with Kids – The Best Options

Many people are under the illusion that cruises and kids make for pretty poor bedfellows, but that is not the case, not anymore at least. There was a time when cruises were the preserve of the old and well to do but things have changed, and there are lots of family-friendly cruises that children of all ages and tastes will love, and you will too.


If you’re interested in embarking on a family cruise, here are some of the best options available to you:


P&O Cruises

P&O Cruises have no less than five ships that are family-friendly, including the Britannica and Oceana. Each of these ships has a kids’ club and children’s area, with plenty of stuff to keep the little ones entertained including puppet shows,dance classes and even kayaking and biking excursions when you’re on land,, as well as the Reef Club, which will look after the children 24/7, so when you want a little adult time, you won’t have to worry about keeping them safe. Best of all, the ships sail to a range of exciting destinations including the Mediterranean and the Norwegian fjords. A great time is guaranteed to be had by all.


Loveitbookit’s Icelandic Adventure

If your children are a bit older, one of the best cruise deals you are likely to find that will keep the whole family happy is the Icelandic Adventure at Loveitbookit. Why? Because the cruise offers 5-star luxury, which the adults will love, and the kids will enjoy watching whales, chasing the Aurora Borealis and having fun in the snow, skiing, snowboarding and having snowball fights, when you’re on land. Taking in Ireland, Iceland and the Shetlands of Scotland, you will see so many beautiful wonders of nature that you will all be blown away.


The Norwegian Jade

The Norwegian Jade is probably the best of Norwegian Cruise Line’s ships when it comes to all-out family fun. When she’s sailing, adult passengers can enjoy two high-quality restaurants and bars, and the kids will love The Splash Academy which puts on lots of great activities for children between 3-17 years old. From learning circus skills to participating in scavenger hunts and even playing video games, there is no chance of getting bored when you’re on-board this particular cruise liner.


MSC Cruises

If you have kids who simply love playing with Lego, then you only really have one choice  – MSC Cruises. Why? Because their ships hold a dedicated Lego Day where the kids can play with Lego, Lego-based video games, and challenges which can even see them awarded with Lego Mater diplomas, Not only that but the line’s four largest ships also have DJ masterclasses, Formula One simulators, a 4D cinema experience and karaoke events. Talk about action-packed!



If your daughter or son is Disney mad, make their dream come true by booking a cruise on one of the four Disney Ships, Disney Dream, Disney Magic, Disney Wonder and Disney Fantasy where they will have all of the fun of Disney World on the open seas. It’ll be magical.


The sea really is the place to be when you have a young family!
