At Carnival, a family cruise package is more than just a holiday – it's an adventure of a lifetime. Spend your school holidays sliding down water slides, splashing in pools, or simply relaxing on deck. Our family cruises offer a wide range of entertainment for the whole family, day and night.

On top of all the fun onboard, a family cruise package can take you to some amazing ports, allowing you to explore what Australia and the South Pacific has to offer.

Departing from Brisbane and Sydney, our family cruises will give you all a getaway to remember.



There’s nothing quite like a live show after a fun filled day. Kickback and let us entertain the socks off you.


Every meal will be the adventure of a lifetime for your tastebuds. Our talented chefs and bartenders will bring out your inner foodie.


When was the last time that you really relaxed? A visit to our Spa & Fitness centre will leave you in seventh heaven.

We put the fun into Family Cruise Packages

In order for any family holiday to be a success, you need to find generational activities that’ll delight any age group. And that is easy and fun to do on a Carnival cruise. Life as a parent is busy and that’s something the Carnival Cruise Line team understands.

So, why not book a spa therapy or night out while our friendly onboard take care of the kids’ clubs. We even have a teen club, 12-14 years with Circle ‘C’. When you’re done, reunite in the water park or at the mini-golf while a hit movie unfolds on the big screen out on deck. For family dining options, head to Guy’s Burger Joint for juicy burgers or be tempted at Masala Tiger.

As ever, the journey is the destination onboard your family-friendly cruise holiday with Carnival.
