Family cruises are incredible way to see the world together. If you want to show your kids more than their corner of the world, cruising is a great way to introduce explorers of all ages to different cultures and experiences.
Who loves cruises? These travelers love cruises:
Cruising works very well for large groups. There is a lot of variety on a ship and this means it can meet different travel goals for different people. Grandma can sit and read on deck while Dad and son go rock climbing and Mom hits the spa. But they can all still easily have dinner together. Cruises are also well prepared to feed large groups at one time, something that can be hard to accomplish with other travel types.
Most parents spend an enormous amount of time taking care of food, cleaning, transportation, and entertainment for their children. The cruise staff takes all that on leaving parents to actually rest and be with their kids instead of all the busy.
Cruising is a great introduction to the world for young travelers. Parents can give kids a taste of other places and help them prepare for more in-depth travels later on when they are older. These shorter interactions are often perfect for a child’s attention span. There’s always something new to see and learn without the need to repack and move your luggage each day.
Cruises are great for explorers. Active travelers want more than a beach to flop on. They want to do and see. Cruises offer the chance to experience different flavors, sights, and activities in each port. You are not limited to the same beach chair each day.
Cruising offers the chance to try new things. Your kids can try a new food. If they don’t like it, no worries. Order something else without worrying about the price tag. You can try a new hobby or activity and find out if your family likes it. It’s also a place where older generations can share their passions for sports, history, food, or travel with younger generations.
Many people live within driving distance of a port. Or, they are able to fly to one on a shorter domestic flight. For many people, this is a preferable option to longer international flights.
Some families have large age differences between kiddos. Cruises work really well at having kid clubs and activities for little guys and separate teen programming that keeps everyone happy.
Sometimes a group of families have different budget needs. Cruises offer a variety of room price points that helps each group member stay on budget or choose luxury options. Cruising also provides a fixed cost for the vacation that allows each family to plan well.
Cruises ships often have room when other travel options have longed booked up. This means that for those who waited too long, they can still have a great vacation.
