Family-Friendly Cruise Ships Coming in 2024

Cruising has always been a popular choice for families looking to spend quality time together on a fun-filled vacation. With the year 2024 just around the corner, several new family-friendly ships are set to sail the high seas. Here are five of the most exciting ones to look out for:

  1. Icon of the Seas: This Royal Caribbean ship boasts a variety of onboard activities for all ages, including a suspended family raft slide, Crown’s Edge thrilling obstacle course, and a suspended infinity pool with beach-club vibes. Icon of the Seas also features a massive pool with a swim-up bar and a range of dining options, making it perfect for families who want to enjoy a luxurious yet action-packed vacation.

  2. Sun Princess: Princess Cruises' Sun Princess offers a more laid-back atmosphere, with activities like movie nights and trivia contests. This is a dream ship for multi-generational families. The ship features an adults-only sanctuary area, as well as plenty of kid-friendly options like a splash pad, Sea Breeze Rollglider, Firefly Park Kids Club, Neon Grove Teens Club, and The Underground Teen Lounge.

  3. Disney Treasure: As the name suggests, Disney's newest ship is filled with family-friendly treasures from elaborately themed kids’ spaces and an attraction at sea. Main dining rooms include Plaza de Coco, Worlds of Marvel, and 1923. There is a Hero Zone for action-packed family adventures. Adults also have their own spaces onboard including The Haunted Mansion Parlor, Skipper Society (think Jungle Cruise), and Periscope Pub (think 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.) This ship is a floating paradise for families.

  4. Utopia of the Seas: This Royal Caribbean ship is set to be one of the largest in the world, with plenty of space for families to spread out and enjoy themselves. This is the biggest weekend with 3-night and 4-night cruises to Perfect Day at CocoCay. There is a 10-story plummet called Ultimate Abyss, a mini-golf course called Aqua Dunes, and plenty of ways to splash.

  5. Explora II: This Explora Journey ship allows you to experience the Ocean State of Mind. This is a luxury cruise ship with cabins designed to feel like your home at sea. Onboard kids 6-17 years old can find activities in the Nautilus Club. You will find thoughtful touches for your kids as well such as smaller bath robes, slippers, and hangers.

No matter which ship you choose, a family vacation on the high seas is sure to be an unforgettable experience. Contact Adventures by Amaris to begin planning.
