Do the children travel for free on cruises?

In some cruise lines children travel on cruise for free, this means that there are special offers for children traveling together in cabin with adults. However, although the passage is free, you must pay registration fees, port taxes and airport taxes, flights and transportation if needed, as well as insurance. In each cruise line conditions and ages vary, but in most of the ships there are daycare facilities with highly qualified personnel. Activities for children on the boat are usually divided by age and are specific to each one of them. In case of adolescents are even companies that provide prepaid cards for kids to make purchases on board.

It is common in most of the cruise lines that children under 18 travel for free in the cabin accompanied by two adults. Even though it is necessary to confirm the gratuity for children while booking.
Some companies also offer family rates, which tend to be cheap and are a good strategy to enjoy a family cruise.

In case that you are travelling with a baby it is necessary to apply cribs or high chairs needeed for the baby through the travel agency.

There is also nursery service during the time of excursions, so in most of the ships, children between 3 and 17 years could be served in the nursery during stopovers.

As for the food, the ships have a wide variaty of  menus and many of them are especially suitable for children.

Usually, all activities for children on board are free. The activities designed for children are included in the total price of the cruise so there are no additional fees for activities for children on board. Cruises are usually a economic way to travel for families because children are considered from under 18 and the times when you can enjoy free children promotions are very common . It is important to note that the gratuity usually affects all types of cabin, so we should not take the suite with balcony or outside cabin if we had not planned, only because we are traveling with children. It is usually offered for user convenience and comfort but it is the customer who selects the cabin wanted. Usually, the difference between going in a cruise just with a partner or also with children is not much, so the cruise is a fantastic choice for a family trip.
