Some cruise lines are more geared towards families than others, with fantastic children and youth programs for different age groups. With a wide range of fun activities on offer, you might not see your kids at all between meal times! Highly trained and experienced staff will supervise and interact with your kids, allowing you to focus on yourself for a change.

Your kids could enjoy:

  • Rock climbing
  • Ice skating
  • Parades
  • Themed parties
  • Talent shows
  • Wave riding
  • Theatre performances
  • Chill out areas
  • Juice bars
  • Karaoke
  • Treasure hunts

Teenage Cruisers

Teenage passengers are exclusively catered for on most cruises, with dedicated 'chill out areas', sporting competitions and night time parties on offer. These are a great way for teens to hang out with their new friends in a safe and supervised way that won’t feel like a ‘kids program’ at all.

Childminding Services

For a reasonable hourly fee, many cruise lines provide a childminding service so parents can enjoy a night on the town while their children are looked after. Childminding is usually offered on a pre-book or first come first served basis, so plan ahead as much as possible.

Top tip: Involve children and teenagers in choosing a cruise that they’ll enjoy as much as you will. After all, happy children make happy parents.
