Cruise Destinations Your Kids Will Love

Dover, England
The 350-foot high white cliffs of Dover situated along the coast are spectacular for kids to see – best do some reading before you arrive because there is absolutely no doubt that they’ll be bombarding you with questions as to why, exactly, the cliffs are white. You can also take them to see the medieval Dover Castle, which is the largest castle in England and was a key stronghold throughout history. You can explore the labyrinth tunnels, visit the military museum, or do a tour. The castle is educational but also fun, plus it makes for some great photos.

Hong Kong
The bustling Hong Kong might seem an unlikely choice for kids to visit, but trust us. You can visit family-friendly destinations like Ocean Park (there are giant pandas for them to see!) or Disneyland, but there are other attractions which make it a great option for kids and adults alike. Older kids will love the shopping; everything from trinkets and jewellery in the local markets to top-end electronics and even culinary equipment. The younger ones will enjoy a ride on the star ferry or a trip up to Victoria Peak on the tram, both of which will give you amazing views of the city.

Sydney, Australia
Sydney has a whole host of things to do with kids. Watch the boats and ferries come in at the iconic Circular Quay, where you can also tick the Opera House and Harbour Bridge off your bucket list. You can go for a picnic in the Botanical Gardens, visit one of the many beaches (Bondi is very safe for swimming and easy to reach) or stroll around the Chinese Gardens. For the kids who are a little more adventure-fuelled, take them to Luna Park for a few hours. There’s also lots of cafes and restaurants that are child-friendly, so take full advantage and treat yourself to a coffee, ice cream or even a fancy dinner overlooking Sydney’s best areas; perhaps Darling Harbour, Circular Quay, The Rocks, Bondi or Manly beach.

Reykjavik, Iceland
It’s hard not to love Iceland, and kids will be instantly enamoured with the capital city’s magical atmosphere. Coloured, higgledy-piggledy houses and the Icelandic obsession with fairies and elves is sure to convince them that Reykjavik is a real fairytale town. In terms of things to do, you’re spoilt for choice. Want to ride a hairy Icelandic pony? Go swimming in a hot lagoon? Whale watch? They’re all possible. You can see the city with a free walking tour or bus tour or visit one of the many museums, lots of which offer dress ups and interactions to really engage the kids. It really is a beautiful city with a uniquely Nordic feel to it, so don’t skip this one on your next cruise.

Nassau, Bahamas
The capital of the Bahamas is definitely a dreamy travel destination for adults who want a bit of Caribbean luxury, but it’s equally as enticing for children. Water parks, safe swimming, soft sandy beaches and sea creature encounters just about cover all of the water-based activities they could ever want. Plus, did we mention that there’s a pirate museum and loads of forts?
