Why Cruising is the Ultimate Family Holiday with the Kids to Start Planning Post-Lockdown
We all feel the same way, excited to get out and explore our very own backyard, but don't forget the incredible cruising options for family holidays around Australia.

Carnival Cruise Line is a holiday that will suit the whole family. Each day there are over 45 activities offered on board, from Broadway-style shows, arts & crafts, games, trivia and many more activities to suit all ages.

Each ship also features swimming pools, mini golf and waterslides on board. Friendships will be made at the free Kids Club, as parents can take a few hours out and relax as the kids enjoy the many activities available. At Camp Ocean, 2–11 year-olds stay busy, keep active and have fun as they enjoy ocean-themed age-appropriate activities and entertainment tailor-made for their enjoyment. While the older kids and teenagers keep busy with basketball, arcade games and karaoke jam sessions in Club 02.

While on board, make the most of the incredible dining experiences. Awaken and delight yours senses with delicious main dishes, tempting desserts and general yumminess everywhere you look. From 24/7 pizza, to hand-made sushi, fresh Mexican fair, Guy’s Burger Joint to name a few, you’ll be spoilt for choice and savour in satisfying even the fussiest of appetites.

Carnival Cruise Line also offers a whole range of shore excursions for families. Spend a day exploring the white sands of the world-famous Whitehaven Beach on cruises that call into Airlie Beach. Book a glass-bottom-boat day tour on the turquoise waters of the Coral Sea or enjoy a high-speed catamaran in the magic of the Whitsundays on Great Barrier Reed itineraries.
