There's a huge choice of ships and companies which offer contemporary style cruising with ships generally ranging in size from around 2,000 to 6,000 guests. These value-packed mainstream holidays have a wide range of facilities, often exceeding those found on a comparable land-based holiday. 

Not many holidays have what it takes to keep the whole family happy but choosing the right cruise means children will be entertained from dawn until dusk. These family friendly ships have incredible that rival the most sophisticated resort hotels. Many have dedicated pools and waterparks plus round-the-clock programmes.  More often than not, these are divided into age groups with as many as five different age bands. Teams of experienced, qualified staff are dedicated to looking after children with a vast array of play and leisure activities, with everything from face-painting and talent shows, to dens kitted out with the latest computer games and interactive workshops. It is not just all for the children - the whole family will love the bowling alleys, surf parks, ice-skating rinks and rock climbing walls on some cruises, or relaxing together for evening movies under the stars or a West-End style show.

And once ashore, there are often tours especially designed for families which include trips to theme parks, beaches, cycling tours, canoeing or snorkelling.
