At what age do children pay an adult fare?


At what age can children travel before we have to pay an adult fare for them?

The age at which children can travel before you have to pay an adult fare for them differs depending on which line you travel with but as a guide, with the majority of lines,  once a child reaches 12 years old, they will have to pay an adult fare. A number of lines offer special discounted rates for children staying in the same cabin as a paying adult, and in some cases, children can travel for free until the age of 18. Other lines offer promotions for free or reduced child rates during school holiday time. Be sure to tell your cruise concierge how old your children are and how many people will be travelling so they can help you to find the best deal.
