Default Children travel free

We are planning to go on a cruise next year. I was wondering if there are any cruiselines or specific cruises that offer free cruises to children under 16 years. Obvioulsy they need to be accompanied by paying adults. Can anyone help me out? Thanks

I thought I would check and find nothing. I was wrong. MSC allows children under 17 old years of age to cruise free. *Kids 17 and under sail free when traveling with two adults in the same stateroom (some restrictions may apply.) Here is a link to the website.

Just make sure that the cost for the adults with free kiddies is not more than other cruise lines where the kids are not free, but the prices are lower overall. Make sure you are comparing apples to apples. And, ask about the gov't taxes and fees, etc, so you have total costs to compare. The days when one cruise line would consistently be a better deal than others, etc., are over. Cruise prices vary by cruise line, the ship, and the exact sailing date. I know it requires a lot more research, but you could save a lot of money by going to the cruise lines online and doing your own pricing before calling a travel agent. I used to have an agent who always got me the cheapest fare....never could beat his deals. Now, they want you to tell them when and what ship, and they just book it.
Good luck!

Regent www.rssc.com has many cruises where children cruise free. One caveat, although shore excursions are included, you may have to pay extra for shore excursions for kids.
