A cruise can be a sojourn for one, a romantic voyage for two, a fun break for a group of friends, or one of the easiest family vacations you’ll ever plan. Many popular cruise lines have incredible features that are well-suited to families who sail together, whether it’s parents and their kids or three or four generations of family fun. Here’s why you should choose a cruise:
Easy travel from place to place. A cruise vacation keeps you moving, with new things to see and do onboard or onshore every day. But you don’t have to worry about unpacking and re-packing as you go. Your stateroom or suite is yours for the duration, and the crew does the driving (or sailing, in this case), mostly while you are deeply asleep.
Everyone will be entertained. While your ship moves between ports or spends a day at sea, there will be onboard activities for family members of all ages. Depending on the ship you choose, there may be live shows, games and tournaments, lectures, films, libraries, fitness centers, spas, sport courts and running tracks, swimming pools and hot tubs, shopping, arcades, bowling, dance lessons, cooking demos, and ship tours. Some newer ships offer fantastic attractions like surf or sky-diving simulators, ice-skating rinks, ropes courses or zip lines.
Activities just for kids. For families with children, onboard kids’ clubs are a priceless amenity. Major cruise lines like Princess, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian and Disney are rightfully proud of their supervised kids’ clubs, which offer age-appropriate activities and parties throughout the day and evening. Don’t tell the kids, but the activities often include some education with the fun.
Time for family bonding, too. If you’re worried that the kids will have so much fun in the kids’ club that you’ll never see them, be assured that you’ll have family time, too. Dinner in an onboard restaurant is a great time to share the fun of the day. And, there will be lots of options for family excursions on shore, where you’ll discover and enjoy new places together.
Great food. Speaking of dinner, your family will love the wide variety of fresh and delicious food available onboard, from gourmet fare to open-air buffets to pizza and burgers by the pool. Picky eaters, vegetarians and vegans, paleo eaters and foodies will all find satisfaction.
