We are looking at holidaying with 6 year old, 4 year old and 1 year old boys. My husband is considering cruises that depart from Australia. We’ve never been on a cruise before. Would it be suitable for kids? Has anyone done a cruise with small kids? Would you recommend it? Any tips?

  • No I haven’t, but my friend did and she’s all positive about it !

  • A cruise is a great family getaway. They have activities just for the kids so mum and dad have a break, as well as activities to enjoy together as a family.

  • My son was 8 when we took him on a cruise and he enjoyed it immensely any thing under that age I tend to think I wold be stressed as toddlers are full on and a cruise ship is big! However in saying that people do take littlies and seem to enjoy the experience, its just more hands on than relaxing.

  • You just need to check out the different ships and see what they have to offer for children. Some ships have so many activities for children and adults alike. They reall are a great family holiday to take

  • A friend went on a cruise p&o and babies/toddlers weren’t allowed in the pool unless they are toilet trained. Kids club was only for older kids and she had problems with how they dealt with lost baggage so wouldn’t recommend them

  • Good question; following the answers.

  • there are some good comments here

  • the queen mary is a beautiful bat

  • My neighbours just recently did one and she said the kids loved it.

  • I would love a family cruise but get sea sick

  • Sounds like a lot of fun… wish we could afford it :)
