KIDS CRUISE FOR FREE! We're serious!

Are there any cruises on which KIDS CRUISE FOR FREE?

YES!  But not many. We’ve listed them all below. 

Be sure to contact us if you’re looking for a cruise in which kids cruise for free - as new ships and dates are announced all the time, and often the web site pricing will not reveal the correct kid-free price!

If you’re a military family in Europe you’re in luck, as kids age 12 and under cruise for free on almost ALL MSC CRUISES in Europe, (when they are the 3rd and 4th person in a cabin), while kids ages 13-17 pay a very reduced rate, sometimes as little as $99 each!! 

MSC is top-tier, large Italian cruise line and most of their sailings are in Europe.  So if you’re in Germany or Italy, it’s likely you won’t have to fly to an MSC cruise departure port. 

MSC has a complimentary kids and teens program with all sorts of fully supervised activities in secured areas starting from early in the morning until late in the evening. 

NOTE - there is an additional military discount available on balcony cabins or better that is often NOT shown in pricing on the web site.  

So this is what you should do:

1. Check out THIS LINK that will show you ALL of MSC's cruises that are 5 days or longer.

2. CALL US to get the lower rate applied to the cruise of your choice - 866-964-5482. 

For families in the United States.....

Kids cruise for free on these MSC cruises to the Caribbean.

The *new* MSC Divina is a gorgeous, sleek new ship that typically sails roundtrip from Miami to various ports throughout the Caribbean!

Additionally, Costa only offers a KIDS CRUISE FREE promotion on a select few of their cruises from time to time.  So, be sure to CALL US to help you find your best kids-go-for-free cruise deal. 

For right now - that’s it! No other cruise lines are offering any kids cruise free deals. However, we know you want that. So we’re constantly on the lookout for it and all other great cruise deals and will let you know as soon as we know.
