Multi-generational cruising has become so popular that many cruise lines now offer a wide array of stateroom options. Norwegian Cruise Line is no stranger to the idea of making traveling with your family as easy as possible. Whether your group is small or large, Norwegian offers convenient connecting staterooms or multi-room suites throughout their fleet. Most of their ships even offer two-bedroom family suites that are conveniently located near the kids’ area, so that it’s as easy as ever for your kids to have fun!
Plus, cruise lines are now recognizing that young families are eager to travel as well. Cruise lines such as Holland America Line even offer baby-friendly cruises for infants 6 months or older. To ensure cruising with your little one is as easy as possible, high chairs, booster seats, and cribs are available on board! With options like this, planning a vacation for your entire family has never been ever!
Day Time Activities
From the moment you wake up, there are incredible opportunities throughout the ship to keep everyone in your party happy. From relaxing poolside to taking in educational programs, cruises offer a diverse selection of onboard activities to ensure you have the best vacation experience possible. Cruise lines understand that different age groups have different interests, so that’s why they offer a wide range of age appropriate programs. From toddlers to teens, these programs will ensure your kids are entertained and having a blast all day!
As a top cruise line for families, Royal Caribbean offers exceptional programs and activities for the kids in your party. RipcordSM by iFLY®, bumper cars, a roller skating rink, rock-climbing walls, and exclusive shows and parades with characters from DreamWorks, are just a few of the incredible activities offered onboard. Plus, Royal Caribbean offers specialized programs for teens, kids, and babies that allow them to interact with other kids their age. The only problem you’ll face is finding enough hours in the day to try every activity!
Dining Choices for Everyone
For some, multi-generational cruising means vacationing with the youngest in your family to the oldest. With that age range comes a wide variety of taste buds. But not to worry, cruises offer dining options for even the pickiest of eaters! From casual restaurants and poolside burger stands, to elegant specialty dining restaurants, each meal can be enjoyed as one big family or separately.
Many cruise lines also offer special dining options just for the kids. Princess Cruises offers special events designed for youth and teen age groups. On select evenings, kids and teens can enjoy their own dinner surrounded by their new friends and staff! Whether it’s formal dinners or pizza and ice cream parties, these evenings offer the perfect opportunity for the adults to enjoy a nice and relaxed evening! The best part is that there’s no shopping, cooking, or cleaning for the adults!
After a long day of sightseeing and creating new memories with the children, parents and grandparents deserve some fun as well! From a quiet and elegant dinner, to escaping to a Broadway show, the entertainment doesn’t stop once the sun goes down! Cruises offer a wide selection of evening activities to ensure adults have the chance to relax and unwind.
Cruise Lines recognize that everyone is on vacation and deserves to have fun, so they have created unique ways for the parents to have fun too. Onboard Celebrity Cruises, parents can take advantage of their babysitting services for a small fee. From Afternoon Party hours of 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm, to the Slumber Party hours of 10:00 pm to 1:00 am, you can have some down time while ensuring your children are safely cared for. Plus, you can also enjoy the in-stateroom babysitting service so your kids can rest up for the fun-filled days ahead.
Cruise Lines have truly thought of everything to ensure your cruise is a vacation that’s enjoyable for the whole family. Where else can you experience a vacation that makes everyone from the youngest member to the oldest member of your family happy! Contact your Vacation Consultant today to start planning your multi-generational cruise. It’s better when you are together!
