With the number of special offers growing daily, and companies tripping over themselves to cater to the ever-expanding family market, cruise holidays with kids are a much more tempting option than in the past, when they were often regarded as the preserve of the elderly traveller. 

Cruises will never be everyone’s cup of tea, but there are many reasons to at least try one out. First of all, they allow you to visit several destinations on one holiday but also to spend plenty of time chilling by the pool. Secondly, they offer a vast array of activities and facilities that differ by cruise but might include watching movies under the stars, dolphin- and whale-spotting, crèches, children’s and teen clubs, decktop climbing walls, basketball courts, surfing pools and even ice-skating – in addition to pools, gyms, spas, cinemas, theatres, shops and a choice of restaurants.

We’ve handpicked a small selection of the most tempting family cruises currently available along with any deal or discounts currently in place.

Tips

Test out the waters on a ferry-based ‘mini-cruise’. 
 
Choose a family-friendly cruise company with entertainment suited to your kids and where there also likely to be kids the same age who speak the same language. 
 
Opt for a ship with a ‘relaxed dining’ policy, so you can eat when you want from a choice of restaurants offering food everyone enjoys.  
 
Choose a big cabin with adequate storage space and, if possible, a private balcony.
 
Check which currency you’ll be expected to pay in – exchange rates may negatively affect your bill. 
 
Pick a cruise with staff who speak good English, especially when it comes to childcare.
