Family-Friendly Cruises

To see discounted family-friendly cruises, use the Find a Bargain box on the left.

A cruise ship is an ideal setting for a family vacation. Cruise lines with extensive youth programs allow parents to relax and enjoy themselves while their children are being well taken care of, making new friends and having fun. Ships feature kids-only facilities, trained counselors, planned activities and, in many cases, babysitting services. The table below summarizes the amenities offered by family-friendly lines.

Note that some travel restrictions may apply to infants and pregnant women (click here to read more).
