Cruise for the Entire Family
Choosing a family holiday can be very challenging. In addition to making sure that there is something for everyone, there is also the price factor that forces many families to make compromises between their wishes and budget. At a first glance, it thus may seem a little bit unusual that a growing number of families decide for a cruise instead of conventional holidays. But a closer analysis of family-centred cruises reveals that they don’t only offer something for the entire family but also offer a good value for the price. In fact, many families that go on a cruise spend less than those opting for the conventional holidays.
Endless Entertainment for Both Children and Their Parents
Family-friendly cruise lines offer endless entertainment for both children and their parents. The youngest passengers are entertained by their favourite cartoon characters, Disney princesses, strip heroes, action figures, … Then there is the deck pool with waterslides and all sorts of features that keep children occupied for hours. Just about all cruise liners also include a number of sports facilities and various children’s activities ranging from pool games to dances and movie nights, to mention only a few.
Group Baby-Sitting Included in the Fare Price
Parents who would like to have some time for themselves will be pleased to hear that family-friendly cruises also include group baby-sitting at no extra charge with the exception of late evening and cabin baby-sitting.
