Long gone are the days where cruising is only for people of a certain age and budget. Nowadays there truly is a cruise for everyone.
With an activity to keep every generation entertained, a whole family can enjoy the wonders of a cruise. Grandparents, parents and children alike can all go on one holiday together knowing that everyone is catered for all in one place.
Cruise ships are ever becoming multigenerational. Not only are cruise lines improving what they offer for children in terms of kids clubs and activities they also understand that some of the family might want to relax, so are introducing adult only and quieter areas.
Some of the megaships available today offer not only kids clubs where children & teens can take part in games but a whole host of things to do; rock climbing, bumper cars, rope courses, miniature golf, surfing simulators, slides, ziplines, water parks, IMAX cinema and often the latest computer consoles. Cruise lines to look out for include Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Line, Carnival Cruise Line and P&O.
It is not only cruise lines offering non-stop adrenaline filled activities. On top of this, cruise lines such as Princess offer fun activities that are also educational. They have a partnership with Discovery Science Channel to offer activities and shore excursions which are fun as well as enriching.
The increase in cruise lines offering an option for freedom or anytime dining allows families to dine whenever suits individuals.
Specific family staterooms sleeping 5 or 6 people or the option to have connecting cabins makes it even more appealing for families to cruise.
One myth is often that a cruise will be too expensive for the family. When you consider what is included in the price; all of your food and entertainment as well has many lines offering competitively priced drinks packages, a cruise can be better value for money than some land based holidays. This means cruising can be less costly than spending holidays in expensive hotels and paying extra for food and drinks.
