Cruises are a wonderful way for all the family to have fun together; with highly organised entertainment programmes aimed at toddlers, tweens and teens, there will never be a dull moment onboard! Mum and dad can enjoy a well-earned rest and a refreshing drink by the pool while the kids are busy having the time of their lives playing with the onboard facilities and meeting other kids, or the whole family can enjoy activities together.

A wide range of family suites are offered by most cruise lines, featuring connecting rooms, so that both parents and children can enjoy their own space. Plus you'll find children's favourite dishes on all family cruises - including hot dogs and pizza, as well as healthier options, such as salads, vegetables, pasta and fruit. Children can dine with their parents for all meal, and babies are also catered for. If you have any questions or would like to find out more about the selection of baby foods available on cruise lines, speak to one of our dedicated cruise specialists.

Onboard baby-sitting and crèche services will leave parents safe in the knowledge that their little ones are being well looked after by qualified child minders, giving them the opportunity to spend some quality time together.
