Enjoy A Family Cruise This Season

Jul 25, 2008
While the tourist destinations of theme parks like Disney World or natural landscapes like the Grand Canyon are easy answers, cruising is a great alternative to the norm. While cruises aren't a traditional kid-friendly vacation there are many that are themed for both adults and children, and some especially for spring breaking college goers. As the trend grows the options for families are becoming more available.

There is always a planned event for every person in the family with family cruises. Family togetherness is a premium and no one has a good reason to complain about being bored. Avoid the planned events and there is still always something to do on board. Pools are almost always brimming with toys or a trip to the arcade or media room and entertain anyone.

With the kids occupied parents can reconnect with each other and spend time having their own vacation. With supervision included at most activities the kids will give you nothing to worry about as you enjoy a romantic evening, some luck at the casino, or a stroll along the deck. There are several wonderful restaurants on board for an adult night out. Then rejoin the children in time for some bowling or a trip around the roller rink.

When comparing companies, especially during the school holiday breaks do your homework. You have to ask specifically for a family style cruise. Not all companies make special plans for the kids on board for every boat shipping out. You won't want your pre-scholars getting mixed with the spring break college crowd. Inquire about the activities on board for all family members, and avoid a case of the borings.

On-shore activities are another thing to remember. Ask what you should take time for. Checking out the port cities along your trip is a great learning experience for the children, make them feel like the world travelers they are. The quality of your trip will be greatly advanced as you introduce your family to island life.

There are usually package deals for you to ask your travel agent about. Groups can often qualify for a discount, shop around for one. The convenience of the package deal will make your trip that much more relaxing, especially the all-inclusive ones. All-inclusive trips leave you without having to keep cash on hand, since you've pre-paid with the ticket aboard.

Enjoy your vacations and make sure to look for solid deals for your family.
