Cruises make amazing family holidays. With so much to do on-board each ship and so many different destinations to visit as well, one thing’s for sure, you’ll never be bored. And neither will the kids! With all your travel, accommodation, food and entertainment included, cruise holidays offer excellent value for money too.
Today’s modern cruise ships have a huge array of facilities on-board, such as water slides, rock-climbing walls, ice rinks, adventure playgrounds and virtual-reality trampoline parks to name but a few! What’s more, cruise ship kids’ clubs are free of charge, and can keep kids busy with fun activities from breakfast until bedtime, leaving parents to enjoy plenty of quality time together. Bliss!
With a choice of restaurants, flexible dining times and non-stop snack options, cruise ship cuisine will please even the fussiest of eaters. A choice of cabin types is available to cater to families of all sizes and budgets. There’s a massive choice of itineraries too, with cruises ranging from two-night mini breaks to holidays of two weeks or more.

Booking your family cruise holiday
The prices you’ll see online for cruise holidays are usually based on two adults sharing a cabin. As family cruise holiday pricing is more complex than that of a land holiday, with different cabin types and the ages of children to consider, it’s not currently possible for travel agents to display family prices for every cruise. However, here at Cruise118 we have a team of dedicated Cruise Concierge who are perfectly placed to find the best cruise for your family, at the very best price.
Our award-winning team of Cruise Concierge can offer advice about which ships and destinations are best for your family as well as any cruise line promotions offering reduced prices for children. If you’d like to chat to one of our team, just give us a call on 0808 1234 118.
