Nickelodeon Cruises for Families

All prices shown for:

As of 2017, Nickelodeon cruises are not offered. Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) used to be the official partner of Nickelodeon, offering Nickelodeon cruise ships with Dora, SpongeBob and more themed programming. However, the partnership ended in 2015. Instead, consider these great alternatives for your next cruise with kids.

Dr. Seuss Bookville onboard Carnival Vista.Carnival – Seuss at Sea
Parades, story time, character meet-and-greets and even a Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast are featured on Carnival Cruise Line. We highly recommend the new Carnival Vista.

Kristin Chenoweth posing with DreamWorks characters Shrek and Puss in Boots onboard Anthem of the Seas.Royal Caribbean – DreamWorks
Hang out with Kung Fu Panda, Shrek and other DreamWorks characters when you sail on select Royal Caribbean ships. Character dining, parties, trivia, scavenger hunts and more are part of the fun for kids. Plus, you can watch DreamWorks movies onboard! Not sure which ship to try? We like Harmony of the Seas!

A LEGO-themed playroom onboard one of MSC Cruises ships.MSC – LEGO
A European-based cruise line, MSC’s partnership with LEGO means families can find LEGO-themed playrooms and activities on select MSC ships. And good news — MSC’s first US cruise ship will make its debut in late-2017, sailing out of Miami for Caribbean destinations. Bonus: Kids cruise free on MSC!

Andy's Toy Room onboard Disney Wonder.Disney
It goes without saying, but Disney offers a unique opportunity to visit with your favorite characters – minus the crowds of a theme park. Deck parties and awesome waterslides add to the fun, but its kids’ clubs – which include a life-life version of Andy’s Toy Room (Toy Story) — are what make Disney Cruise Line stand out.
