Each of the family-friendly cruise lines offers something different. Families with teenagers might want an action-packed ship with waterslides, zip-lines and rock-climbing walls.

We've hand-picked a selection of cruise deals which are great for families. The prices displayed are based on one or two children sharing with two adults. Actual prices for families may vary depending on the ages of the children in your party and the stateroom type you choose.
Why is the total family price more than three times the per person price?
The per person price is based on two adults sharing the cheapest available stateroom. Sometimes, these small staterooms do not have extra beds for children. The family price is based on an upgraded stateroom which can accommodate the whole family.
