Looking to book a holiday that the whole family will enjoy? Want to embark on a cruise but wondering if they’ll be suitable for kids or elderly grandparents? At Cruise Deals, we understand how important it is to choose a holiday that pleases everyone you bring on-board.
Whether you prefer a beach holiday in the Mediterranean filled with water parks, scuba-diving and fine cuisine or you’re considering one of those luxury cruises your friends have told you about, CruiseDeals.co.uk family cruises provide the perfect holiday for the family. Here’s a quick guide to help you pick the best cruise this summer.
Choosing the right cruise
A summer cruise provides the perfect means for you and your family to spend quality time together. Many cruises offer a selection of on-board activities and daytime port excursions that are perfect for your children to stretch their legs and get a taste of culture.
There’s many adult-only cruises centred around entertainment, lounging and partying, so it’s worth taking the time to find cruises that are suited to your children. Take a look at some of the family-friendly cruises available on-site filled with poolside kids’ clubs, play areas and special teen discos.
Have you been on a cruise before?
If this is the first time your family have embarked on a cruise, it’s probably a good idea to test the waters before you set sail across the Atlantic. Get a taste of cruise life with short trips across the Mediterranean Sea, filled with plenty of entertainment and poolside activities on-board. You’ll also explore some of Europe’s best cities and indulge in cultural excitement, wine-tasting and delicious local food. A lot of cruise ships also offer babysitting and nursery services. Why not visit the Acropolis in Athens or maybe venture into Venice for a fun gondola experience?
Family cruises are designed to cater to all generations from your little kiddies to the adults and grandparents at the top. You’ll find that a family cruise has all the same amenities and activities that you’ll come across on your standard poolside holiday. Things like kids’ clubs and teen discos are abundant, as well as a selection of child-friendly restaurants to enjoy your evenings spent out at sea.
Looking for something a little bit different?
More and more families are beginning to choose something a bit different when it comes to their cruise holidays. A trip to the Norwegian Fjords provides exceptional scenery, calm waters, and all the same family-friendly activities you can expect while on-board a cruise liner. Offering something a little bit different to your standard Mediterranean cruise, the Norwegian Fjord experience is perfect for easing you in to your first cruise holiday with the family.
What about small children and teenagers?
Choosing the right holiday can be difficult at the best of times but when you have moody teens to deal with, it can make your choice a lot harder. Look out for cruise packages that stipulate exactly the type of activities on offer. Some even split their activities into suitable age brackets so you can be sure you teens and younger kids will be happy on-board. There’s activities like surfing lessons, games rooms filled with consoles, cinemas and special teen discos where your teens can get some time away from their parents. For the little ones, designated play areas and kid’s clubs are usually on offer.
Whether you fancy the relaxation and poolside fun that a Mediterranean cruise supplies, a relaxing journey around the Canary Islands or something a little different with a Norwegian Fjord experience, you’ll have no trouble finding a selection of fun activities for all the family to enjoy.
