Child-friendly Cruises from Brisbane to Add to Your Bucket List

Queensland kids know how to turn on the sunshine and their lifestyle is truly full of fun and sun on a Carnival cruise from Brisbane.

Carnival is renowned for its family-friendly cruise offerings to exciting Australian and international destinations. Setting sail from Brisbane provides your fun-loving kids with a non-stop adventure from the moment they step onboard.  

A funbelievable holiday for the kids

For starters, Carnival offers cruise ships that are widely recognised as being an all-age party at sea. The ships are jam-packed with an irresistible array of fun-filled activities, dining and entertainment options. Camp Ocean  kids’ club for children, aged two to 11 years old, are a favourite with kids and parents alike. Night Owls babysitting club also watches your little ones until the wee hours, so that mums and dads can kick up their heels.

The kids can make a splash at one of the largest waterparks at sea. Carnival WaterWorks features sky-high thrills with the Green Thunder Waterslide. There’s also a range of swimming pools onboard that are ideally positioned to catch an afternoon breeze or provide a prime location for access to 24/7 ice cream and pizza offered on deck. As well as, dive-in movies that offer on-screen entertainment and a chill-out zone, all in one.

Sporty types will have a ball at the vibrantly designed mini golf course, basketball court, jogging track and other fun-filled action zones that team personal-best times with awe-inspiring open-sea views.

Food the kids will love

Food, glorious food onboard your Carnival cruise ship. The kids will be ravenous after their non-stop activity and all taste buds are tempted. The children’s menu options, which include traditional favourites such as spaghetti bolognese, chicken nuggets, mac ’n’ cheese, hot dogs, peanut butter and jam sandwiches, and, of course, fruit and vegetables, are offered at most of the onboard restaurants. Kids’ desserts, including jaw-dropping banana splits and chocolate fudge brownies, are also a specialty on your Carnival cruise.    

Family fun cruises

Of course, with so much onboard fun and adventure, the journey is the destination on your Carnival cruise. But let’s not forget the cruise deals. Carnival sets sail to a range of Australian and South Pacific locations from Brisbane. You can grab the gang and hop aboard for the short but sweet, and action-packed, Weekend Sampler cruise.

These three-night cruise deals are designed to provide a tempting taste of cruise-style fun and relaxation. You and the kids can also set sail to the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef from Brisbane on four-night cruise deals. When you consider the endless fun and onboard bonding experience, Carnival cruises from Brisbane are designed to leave you and your family with a taste for more.
