Thinking about sailing off into the sunset? A family-friendly cruise might be just what you are looking for!

Have you ever thought about going on a cruise? I have always wanted to go on one, and in December 2018 I was lucky enough to get my wish! My husband, mother-in-law, two children and I sailed from Melbourne to Tasmania at Christmas time, stopping at Adelaide, Kangaroo Island, Hobart, Port Arthur and Burnie on an 8 night cruise with P&O.

Fremantle is, of course, our port for departing and returning within the Perth metro area. You can sail from Fremantle to Exmouth, to another state and to Southeast Asia.

What you may not know about cruise however, is that some cruise companies cater to families better than others. Princess Cruises and Cunard both sail from Fremantle, and they are both family-friendly companies. Before we get into the cruises from Fremantle, here are a few things to know about cruising with kids, and you can read a more comprehensive article about this here.

Children generally have to be 6 months and older to travel on domestic cruises and 12 months and over for international cruises.
You cannot cruise if you are 24 weeks pregnant or further along (this includes if you start your 24th week at any stage during the cruise) and will need to provide a letter from your doctor or midwife stating your due date if you are pregnant.
There are no kettles or microwaves in the rooms for boiling water for formula or heating milk, but staff are usually accommodating when it comes to providing hot water and full cream milk.
Kids clubs and activities are generally available to kids aged 2 and over and children aged 2 and under must be supervised at all times.



If you have decided you want to try a cruise, here are some family-friendly cruises that depart from Fremantle.
