Want to take a family vacation? Worried about the stress of where to go? What to do? What will it cost?
More and More cruise lines are attune to families! You can sail throughout the world with your entire family “stress free”! Traveling to the Caribbean, Alaska, Europe and places in between creating memories to last a lifetime!
Cruising with tots, tweens, or teens can be a fun for all, even Mom and Dad. Kids are big business for cruise lines. Competition to capture the attention of multigenerational families is rising. There is everything from nurseries for babies to activities for grade-school kids and nightclubs for teenagers.
For example, Royal Caribbean International ships, kids ages 3 to 5 can participate in the structured and supervised Aquanauts program with projects leading to the designation of “Certified Junior Adventure Scientist”. There is even a teen Spa called YSpa.
It’s important that Adults feel like they’re on vacation, too. Plenty of activities for the kids allow Mom to escape to the spa and Dad to head to the court for a pick up basketball game.
Royal Caribbean is committed to families. They are incorporating their Royal Babies and Royal Tots program to their other ships. This program caters to ages 6 months to 18 months and ages 18 months to 36 months. It was initially offered on the Allure of the Seas and has since been added to the Oasis of the Seas, Freedom of the Seas and Liberty of the Seas.
Norwegian Cruise Line offers their most popular activities, ‘Family Insanity’, where families compete against each other. They also have “themed nights” for teenagers.
Disney offers a wide range of supervised programs, the most popular being the Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab. For tweens Disney Cruise Line offers a gathering place called “Edge”.
Cruise ships offer so many great “experiences” onboard. Carnival Breeze offers a Carnival Waterworks on their top decks for a “water park experience”. Being outside is where you want to be!
Ask your kids where they would like to go and then contact Cruise Dreams to plan your next stress-free vacation that your family will never forget.
