      It’s very limited and only when kids are in school- not summer or holidays

    When you click on the 4 day carribean cruise it doesn’t come up just basic enter and search screen. Which one is it?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hmm, I find that one to load up for me as I click through. Are you using a mobile device? If so, be sure to switch over to desktop view. If not, maybe try a different browser. I had success using Chrome on my laptop. Hope this helps!

      Thanks so much for the helpful comment!

    • SavingsMama

      Lol…peak summer sailing goes until Aug 31? Wow really…first off, that’s already hurricane time in the water and secondly with this virus happening you’d think more deals would be available lol. Thanks for the comment…super helpful. Still love some RC but the Expedia deal has too may exclusions!

    I have tried so many of the dates listed for the kids sail free and I haven’t been able to find a single one? Can anyone tell me the specific dates/cruise you booked to get this to work? Thanks

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Darn! It will apply on select cruises. Here is what will qualify – “free cruise fare for 3rd guests and higher who are 12 years old or younger as of cruise departure date, booked in the same stateroom as the first two qualifying guests in a triple of quad-occupancy stateroom.

      Find the full details through the link near the bottom of the post. Hoping this might help!

    • Tracys Travel Fun

      Alwichma I can try to help! What dates are you looking for?

      • Amy

        I am trying for all different dates…May 22-26 or sept 17-21st. I am open to any dates that others have had succes with?

  6. Amber

    Just know, when kids sail free the first two reservations usually go up and taxes are added on to compensate. I just went on a week ago with a promo code and what they do is skyrocket the cost of the cruise to make it look like you get a discount but in all actuality it may have only saved $20. Instead of it being 1600 without the coupon they skyrocket the price to 3200 and make it look like you saved 50%.

    • Alicia

      Thanks! I looked this up awhile ago and it was coming up as regularly costing even more than my upcoming Disney cruise.I thought no way that’s right!

    • gray757

      You are exactly right. NCL does the same thing. A $799 per person cruise becomes $1700 for the first 2 people when “kids sail free.” Do they think we are dumb? Lol!

  7. Rachel F.

    We did this promo last fall! It was a wonderful cruise for our family! My parents just got back from the same cruise and actually found our two waiters we had!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      How neat! Thanks for sharing your experience!

  8. kari

    I own a cruise agency and this promotion is for kids 12 and under and for sailings that are when the kids are in school. None of the big holidays are applicable. If you want any pricing , feel free to contact me at and I can check pricing for you. This promotion with the kids sail free will continue, it is not ending today.

  9. mstarindew

    I think we will see alot of promotions in the future. Get stuck on a ship with my kids no thank you. They would have to pay me to take a cruise right now.

    • Brooke

      Lol, ditto mstarindew!

  10. Smellyann

    Ooh, free Coronavirus cruise? Count me in!! 🙄 Seriously, though, I haaaaate that kids 12-18 are not included as actual “kids” in Cruise World. Uh, trust me, CLIA, if you saw all the crap they do, you’d change that policy PDQ! 🤣

  11. Mamma

    Why would anyone book a cruise right now? You couldn’t pay me to go . .

  12. Chris

    We sail on Disney in less than 3 weeks, can’t wait. Perused the deals on this link for RCCL and it didn’t tell you what ship so I didn’t book.

    • Beth

      I cruise in 3 weeks as well! Do you think the Coronavirus will pass by then? 😒😷

      • frecklelily

        Nope. It’ll still be here. And we leave for our cruise on March 14th 😬

      • Chris

        Right now we have 3 cases in FL. 2 are Tampa Bay Area, saw another one came up and haven’t heard from where. My state withheld telling us about the first two for 24 hrs so my trust level of them isn’t fantastic. When you consider how many ships/ports FL has overall I’m not concerned and most of the ships are Caribbean itineraries. Bahamas has rules in place about disembarking. This is our 10th DCL Cruise (hello platinum!) so we may not even get off in Nassau. I talked to DCL special needs yesterday and of course they are going above and beyond for cleaning. I read they are cleaning rooms 2x a day.

  13. alissa landerer

    HI. I tried to booking the idea you posted above for 2 adulsts and 2 kids. What is the total supposed to come out to for that cruise with this deal?

  14. Amanda Durham

    We were trapped aboard the RCL norovirus cruise ship in January of 2019 (under the kids sail free promo). While we didn’t get sick, we were dodging barf all over the place & we couldn’t get off the boat in Jamaica or Mexico. We did get our initial fare refunded, we still paid taxes, gratuities & the flights, hotel & rental car to get there. Then, we were off early & had to hang out for 2 days until our flight (read, hotel, car & entertainment for 5 in Orlando).

    • Angela V.

      Oh no, I’m so sorry to hear that! Our cruise (first time cruisers) is set to sail April 4th, and at this point I’m hoping they cancel it. I’m from WA and I think we’re just seeing the tip of the iceberg with coronavirus cases in the US.
