Finding fun family cruises
Your meals are cooked for you, no one needs to worry about cleaning or tidying and there are excellent entertainment options for people of all ages – and you have the chance to see some of the world’s most beautiful destinations.
Search for a family cruise that ticks all of your boxes and look forward to a holiday the whole family is sure to enjoy.
Making sure your choice is family friendly
While a cruise is an excellent way to get the family together on an unforgettable trip, you do need to make sure you pay attention when searching for your dream break. Lots of cruise holidays are geared towards a certain age group and some are explicitly limited to only senior passengers, so make age-suitability one of the first things you check.
Even if a cruise says it’s suitable for all ages, have a close look at the entrainment options available and see if you think it really will work for your grownup children and young grandchildren. You need to know there will be plenty of fun options on offer while you sail from port to port – especially when you have little ones in tow. MiniTime has a nice age-by-age guide to choosing the right cruise for families with children, ideal if your grandkids will be joining you.
There’s also some handy advice for choosing cruises that will suit the whole family from The Telegraph, which has put together some top tips for finding the perfect cruise. The article also points out that many cruise lines offer discounts for children or even let them travel free, taking some pressure off the holiday budget.
Family friendly fun at sea
A cruise is a great choice for a family holiday when there are no grandchildren or young ones involved too. Sophisticated evenings dancing, fine dining options and plenty of time to chill out in a pool or sight see from the deck, a cruise can offer a great way to connect with your grown up children. Be certain that you choose a holiday all of you can enjoy with a little bit of help from Travel and Leisure’s guide to picking the right cruise.
