Whether you want a school holiday cruise from Sydney, Brisbane, Auckland or Melbourne, a long voyage or a short break, you’re in the right place. We’re leaving this sale page up permanently so you know where to go when planning your family adventure at any time of the year. Bookmark it and check back regularly - it will be updated as we seek out the very best school holiday cruise deals for the upcoming months!
  • Pro Tip:  Most cruise lines only allow a limited number of kids onboard and child spaces sell out fast during the school breaks, so make sure you book early to secure your spot!
Setting sail for the holidays is fast becoming a time-honoured tradition, and there are many ways it makes the perfect family getaway. Ships offer numerous highlights for young passengers: sports and other organised activities, shows and music, pools, entertainment facilities and a range of places to eat. Kids programs are both fun for the children and convenient for the adults who need a little grown-up time, and with a little planning  you should be able to find plenty of accommodation options to suit family groups of various sizes.

With entertainment, food, transport and a place to lay your head all wrapped up in one simple booking, a cruise is a family holiday that causes no planning stress - especially when booked through Cruise Sale Finder’s simple-to-use booking engine. Once onboard, everyone from young to old will benefit from a style of travel that puts everything at your fingertips: meals cooked, dishes done, shows laid on, a crew ready to keep you as occupied as you care to be, and all in one place so there’s no taxis or transport to worry about. Make the next school holidays trip the best one yet!
