Travelling as a family

Ferry travel is perfectly suited for families as you can pack as much luggage as you like, including everything you need for the little ones in your group. 

What’s more sea travel is particularly exciting for children and our ferries provide a range of facilities and entertainment for all ages, plus outdoor deck areas to explore and have fun.

Travelling by ferry also provides time to relax and spend quality time together as a family, which can be difficult in our busy lives at home. So step onboard, let your hair down and enjoy.

We’ve thought of everyone in your group. Little ones will love the Pirates' Island and children’s entertainer, while older children will find plenty to do in the games room. And for all of you, our onboard cinema shows a range of films suitable for all ages.

What’s more all of our restaurants have special meals and dishes for children.
