Last Minute Cruise Cruises For Families - Family Cruise FAQ


Cruise holidays offer great excitement and enjoyment for people of all ages. They are a fantastic way for the whole family to be together away from the pressures of everyday life and enjoy each other's company. Family cruises offer something for everyone, however if you are considering taking your entire family on a cruise holiday here are some tips that can help you make your travel experience a splendid family memory. Ask your agent some simple questions to ensure that a fun time is had by you and your family:


1. Are kids allowed on this cruise?


For a long time, cruises have catered mainly for groups of adults and couples without children. This status quo has rapidly changed during the last few years. However, some cruise ships do still have age restrictions so it is always worth your time checking to find out if your preferred cruise line is one of them.


2. Does this cruise holiday have special children's activities?


While the majority of cruise lines allow children on board these days, not all of them will have special activities that cater specifically for the younger members of your family. Even if your idea of heaven is long lazy days at sea with nothing to do, your children may not appreciate such a holiday. Make sure that there are enough activities on the ship to keep them busy. Find out if there is a children only pool, child-friendly movie screenings, kids’ clubs or any other activities available. Ensure that your preferred cruise will have enough exciting goings on to keep your kids out of your hair so they don’t end up occupying their time by annoying you.


3. Are there kids cabins and menus available on the cruise?


If you are booking with a cruise line that caters for kids, you should expect them to have a full kids menu. Many cruise companies have a policy that does not allow children to stay in cabins without adult supervision. This may mean that your whole family has to stay in one room, so it is good to find out how big the rooms are so that everyone’s trip will be a comfortable one.


4. Will there be someone to supervise my children on the cruise?


If you want to relax without having to watch your children for every waking hour of the entire trip, you need to ensure that babysitting services and children's centres will be available on the cruise ship. Also, find out whether you will have to pay additional costs for these services; and if so, ask how much it will cost and what are the hours of operation for these services.


5. Will this cruise holiday be safe for my family?


Undoubtedly, you want your vacation to not only be fun and exciting, but also safe. To make sure that your children are in good hands you should check whether those who are supposed to be supervising your children have the necessary first aid and safety training credentials. Inquire as to what specific safety measures are in place on the cruise ship to ensure the safety of your children is paramount. You can never be too careful, so leave nothing to chance.


In last few years cruise holidays in general have grown in popularity. They offer vacations that the whole family can enjoy. Multiple locations, sun, great food, and entertainment for everything.
