With the World's Leading Cruise Companies

Family Cruises

Cruising has shaken off it's reputation of being for the retired and family vacations are firmly on the ocean radar!  As ships get larger, certain lines have developed an enviable reputation for ocean-borne resort-style holidays, perfect for familys.  Each ship will have a age related kid's club with a range of activities for the kids in a safe and supervised environment, allowing parents the opportunity to relax and enjoy the holiday themselves.

These are our favourite family friendly cruise lines.  Contact our Travel Team to discuss your options!

Foreign & Commonwealth Office and the NHS have up-to-date advice on staying safe and healthy abroad.

The advice can change so check regularly for updates.

As the ships get larger, the facilities get bigger too and MSC Cruises is pioneering the super ship brigade.  With a number of departures from Southampton, MSC is firmly positioning itself as a UK cruise brand with some great value deals and offers throughout the year.

Also interesting to note, that their ship, MSC Presziosa is specifically targeted at the UK market with tea & coffee making facilities in the cabins - oh how we love our cuppa in the morning! 

TIP::  Did you know that MSC also operate a Southern Hemisphere summer sailing schedule from Durban?  With great island destinations, a cruise is a great add-on to your Southern African holiday.

P & O Cruises is another firm British Cruising favourite.  With many departures from Southampton and a more relaxed, less formal style of cruising.  We've travelled on all of the P & O ships and have yet to be disappointed. 

We have always found P & O to be a good, all-round cruise experience with a good mixes of ages on board.  Longer cruises outside of school holidays tend to have an older demographic It's important to note that both Arcadia and Oriana are adult's only ships meaning that P & O have a cruise product for all markets.  The larger ships, Ventura & Britannia are much larger whereas Oriana and Aurora are much smaller. 

TIP:  Keep an eye open for the stunning new ship, IONA!

Celebrity Cruises has become a firm favourite of ours and our guests.  Originally viewed as a premium American Cruise Line, we have always found their ships to be beautiful, creative, elegant and often design-led.

With a number of departures from Southampton, Celebrity has been making waves this year with the arrival of Celebrity Edge, soon to be followed by Celebrity Apex.  We like Celebrity for taking the cruise experience to another level without the tackiness found on some other ships. 

The Cruise experience is outstanding, on-board facilities on-point and accommodations spot-on.

TIP:  Dont miss Edge and Apex - WOW!
