Five jaw-dropping family cruises

Cruise lines have a long history of trying to outdo each other with unusual attractions and unique experiences. We’ve selected five cruises that will make your jaw drop.


Plus - if you book a cruise before Sunday 30th September 2018, you'll also receive triple dividend* with selected partners.

Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Dream

This cruise liner is the closest thing you’ll get to Disney Land on the ocean. There’s plenty of Disney-themed activities which young children and the young at heart will love.

The force is strong as there’s a virtual Star Wars Millennium Falcon cockpit on board. Take on the Empire, pilot the famous ship and go on a virtual adventure across the galaxy.

For those who love princesses and classic Disney, the enchanting musical productions are for you. There’s live performances of Beauty and the Beast that use innovative puppetry, cutting-edge theatrical design and breakthrough story-telling techniques designed to dazzle and delight.

Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas

You’ll be amazed at how much they’ve managed to fit onto one ship. The Quantum of the Seas is like no other cruiser and is at the forefront of bringing advanced technology and entertainment to family holidays.

The first thing you’ll notice is the strange crane that sits at the top of the ship. Don’t fret it’s not under construction! It’s the North Star, a glass capsule which takes cruisers up 300ft in the air to look over the seas – like the London Eye on water.

You can also step into the future and try a cocktail mixed by a robot. Yes, really! At the Bionic Bar, revolutionary new mechanical bartenders serve the drinks.

Royal Caribbean and CocoCay island

Although it may seem you can fit almost anything onto a cruise, Royal Caribbean has gone the extra mile and created its own private island filled with adventure and fun.

This is exclusively for Royal Caribbean guests, located in the Bahamas. You’ll find endless ways to chill out and enjoy beautiful beaches and pristine water, plus exhilarating experiences like the incredible Thrill Water Park, ziplining and every water sport you can imagine.

Norwegian Breakaway

If you’re a bit of a daredevil the largest ropes course at sea on the Norwegian Breakaway should be on the top of your to-do list. Sprawled across the top deck you’ll find this outdoor obstacle course is not only a way to get your adrenaline going but is perfect for the best views of the ocean.

For those who want something unique to their drinking experience the arctic-like frozen chamber is guaranteed to give guests the ultimate chill. The bar, seating and glasses are made entirely from ice and the bar is kept at -10 degrees – brrr!

Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas

Thrill seekers will not want to miss this! Harmony of the Seas brings with it the most water slides at sea, including the world’s tallest slide with a 10 storey drop, known as the Ultimate Abyss. After all the excitement you can end your day by snuggling up in their largest, most luxurious rooms on the ocean. Even if you have an interior room you can still enjoy the sea with virtual balconies. These stream real-time footage from the deck, so you can watch paradise draw nearer and the sun rise in the morning.
