A family cruise is an adventure for all ages, from the young to the young-at-heart. There is truly something for everyone, from toddlers to teenagers, to nan and pop. Plus, with all food, accommodation and entertainment included, it's great value too!
But, this value isn't a secret, and as more and more families take to cruising, it is important to book early! The popularity of a family cruise means that the limited children's space onboard each ship can fill up quickly!

Family-friendly cruise ships offer a boatload of activities for kids, adults and the family unit alike, but which one is best suited to your family? From our top family cruise lines, we have picked our favourite cruise ships, sailing both from Australia and internationally. So, what are you waiting for? Take your pick!
Cruise fares include nearly everything you need for a great family holiday - food, accommodation, daytime and evening entertainment and transportation between travel destinations. On some lines, kids even cruise for free or at discounted rates when sharing a cabin with two adults. It's value for your holiday dollars that you just can't beat!
On a family cruise, there is no cooking, no cleaning and no grocery shopping. Just unpack once, and let your floating hotel take you from city to city, or island to island, while the ship's crew do it all for you! From cleaning your cabin twice a day, to 24-hour room service, it's all included for you!
From tots to teens, and nan to pop, family cruises are fun for all ages. Many ships have extensive, age-appropriate kids facilities and programs, as well as activities for families to enjoy together. You can also have peace of mind that your children are safe and looked after at all times - youth facilities are supervised, and many cruise ships offer identification bracelets for kids so you don't have to worry about them getting lost.
With more and more family-friendly cruise ships coming to Australia, there is no need for a long international flight to take your family on holiday. This can save your family hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars, meaning more money to enjoy on your cruise!
When was the last time you all sat down to dinner as a family? On a cruise, you can do that every night! And, the best part is there is no clean up afterwards! P.S. If you want a quiet dinner away from the kids, that can be arrange too with a babysitting service!
