4 Family Friendly Cruise Destinations


We first considered a cruise when we were planning our familymoon, all the way back in 2015. They are the perfect way to experience a selection of different destinations, as well as having many of the benefits of an all-inclusive holiday. As the Littles were still quite young back then though, we thought it would be best to wait until they were that little bit older. But actually having looked into cruises a little bit more, there are plenty of cruise ships and destinations that are perfect for children! In this post I'm going to share some of my top family-friendly cruise destinations, to hopefully give you some inspiration if you're considering a family cruise.

Mediterranean Cruise
A Mediterranean cruise has been top of my list for the longest time, stopping at destinations such as Italy, Greece, Malta and Croatia. What's great about these routes is that many of the ships can leave from Southampton, making travel as minimal as possible - perfect if you have children! Lianne has enjoyed a Mediterranean cruise to destinations such as Rome and Barcelona - "The children's activities are just amazing! Always something to keep them entertained no matter the weather. Also endless supply of snacks for them to chose from too".

Baltic Cruise
Keeping relatively close to home again, a Baltic cruise is also another fantastic family friendly cruise destination. A cruise around the Baltic Sea has plenty of history and beautiful scenery to enjoy, as well as plenty onboard to keep little ones (and grown ups) entertained. The cooler weather is also more suitable for families - no worrying about suncream, and much easier for exploring too! Kate was lucky enough to recently enjoy a Baltic cruise as a family - "We went to Norway last year and loved it. The children's club was fantastic - I was very anxious about leaving my daughter but she wanted to be in there constantly! We're looking forward to doing another one now our youngest is older and will be able to join her sister, so we can enjoy the other entertainment on the ship as grown ups".

Disney Cruise
Of course when you think of family friendly cruising, a Disney cruise comes straight to mind! You can actually enjoy a Disney cruise in a number of destinations, including the Caribbean, Europe, Canada, Mexico, and even Transatlantic! Whatever route you travel on though there's plenty to enjoy onboard. As well as stopping for excursions, there are character meet experiences, theatre style shows, fantastic pools and so much more. Adults can also enjoy dedicated floors, nightclubs and lounges.

Caribbean Cruise
If you don't mind travelling a little bit further, then a Caribbean cruise is another great choice. The beautiful weather means plenty of opportunity for beach days and water sports - ideal if you're travelling as a family with a range of ages. Older children can go snorkelling with turtles and other sea creatures, while younger ones can relax on the beach building sand castles and dipping their toes in the sea. Perfect right?
