What makes a great family holiday?

Is it the freedom from worry, the comfort of knowing how much you'll spend, or is it the knowledge that there are plenty of activities for kids of all ages, and adults?

With years of experience, our family cruises take care of all the details so you can relax and enjoy your family holiday. All our ships have a kids club onboard, available for children ages 6 months - 17 years.  Kids will love the fun activities, learning sessions and meeting children the same age. We also offer a babysitting service, so mum and dad can have the best time too.

Activities vary by ship - if you'd like to compare all our ships, please view this quick reference guide.

Ice Skating

Ice-skating at sea? Yes really! Our Oasis Class, Freedom Class and Voyager Class ships have an onboard ice rink – where you can take lessons or take to the ice in style.

Think kid heaven. A mini water park complete with fountains, waterfalls, geysers and water-squirting cannons, where kids can splash about to their hearts content.


Ever played a round of golf at sea? Why not? There are golf courses on board many of our ships such as Independence of the Seas and Legend of the Seas, where you can work on your swing or perfect your putt.

Shore Excursions

All our ships offer a wide range of shore excursions, especially designed for family holidays.  Try swimming with dolphins, 4x4 adventures or making pizzas in Naples.
