Big Family Cruises
 



Cruises for Families of 5, 6, 7, 8

 

Only a handful of cruise lines have state rooms that will accommodate families of 5-8. Big state rooms are limited, book very, very early!

Please note that sometimes it is cheaper to book two state rooms or two connecting cabins instead of one large state room suite - plus it gives you a second bathroom.

Below we've compiled a list of ships with cabin staterooms that sleep 5+ and ships that have connecting cabins.

  • Concierge 1 bedroom suite with Verandah sleeps five
