Caribbean Cruises

Caribbean cruises are the perfect romantic getaway, which is why it makes sense to choose a cruise line which offers adult-only options, so there’s nothing to spoil your special moments. Royal Caribbean recognised the need for these private getaways long ago, beginning with the introduction of adults-only solariums on its Vision Class ships. 

More traditional cruise lines such as Cunard and Fred Olsen also offer fewer facilities for children and are another good bet -no less because they have also mastered the art of truly luxurious travel.

Family Cruises

On the other hand, if you’re on the hunt for a family-friendly cruise option, there are also a wide variety of cruise lines that specialise in keeping the kids occupied from dawn until dusk, whilst providing lots of opportunity for Mums and Dads to either join in or kick back and relax whilst onboard. 

If your nippers are Sponge Bob fans, then Norwegian Cruise Lines Nickelodeon-themed cruises could be right up your street. Alternatively, if adrenaline-thrills are more your family’s thing, then look no further than cruising stalwart P&O’s fantastic Family cruises. With ships fitted with al fresco cinema screens, water parks, climbing walls and ice skating rinks, there’ll never be a dull moment during your voyage. Celebrity Cruises certainly offer the kids dedicated treatment, with Fun Factory passes, and kids-only discos and parties.

Whilst it is always possible to break the bank on a long world cruise, with so many lines in the market, it is certainly the case that savvy shoppers can pick up some great Cruise deals that let you to knock £££s off the cost of your getaway.
