I think that you will be lucky to get any meaningful discounts as that is peak time. Several of the cruise lines, notably RCI, have family cabins but more than that I don't know....regards ....Nei.

Have you looked at MSC Cruise line - their policy is that children sharing the same cabin as two adults travel 'free' on the cruise. The only thing they have to pay for is the flight plus Port Taxes.

Christmas and discounts are not two words that go together when cruising. You need a minimum of 5 pax to get the Family Stateroom [sorry Neil!] but with 4 in a room you should get a good 3/4 pax discount.

Fred Olsen is a cruiseline that does give decent discounts for families on selected cruises (family friendly) they discount for a 3rd and 4th person sharing a cabin (although there is a limit on the cabins which are fitted with extra (pullman) berths)for kids aged 2-12 they will pay only 15% of the adult fare for uk departures (it will be a bit more for fly cruises though to cover the flights)and good news is there are two of Freds ships in the caribean next Xmas and those cruises are family freindly!

We had 2 days in Copenhagen prior to the cruise and stayed at the Admiral Hotel which is in Nyhavn. The hotel is situated on the river and is a great location close to the Amalienborg Palace. We had a lovely couple of days sightseeing and used the hop ...

My holiday on Celebrity Reflection… What was the entertainment like? Well there is of course the bars and lounges but this ship had something special…….Silent Disco – Now ive got to say i haven’t been to a disco since 1985, so I would imagine a lot has changed over the years and to my amazement we had the Silent Disco, actually the ship arranged two of them, one on the top sun deck and one in the Solarium, which was by day a tranquil place to snooze, swim or try ...
