All you have to do is show up. All the planning and activities are ready and waiting for you. Let’s face it.
Sometimes the same old theme parks and water rides just don’t get the kids excited.
On a family cruise vacation you have a wide variety of entertainment available practically at your fingertips. And it’s all while enjoying the pleasures of a floating resort.
The activities on a family vacation cruise are endless. Pools, tennis, wall climbing, nightclubs, spas, massage, casinos, live entertainment, snooker, card games, organized kid’s activities, whirlpools, shore excursions. These are just some of the things offered by the different cruise lines.
Disney Cruise Lines is especially tailored for the kids. They offer an endless variety of individual areas and special activities for families, kids, teens and adults.
There are fantastic programs just for kids and teens, and there's even something special for the littlest of cruisers. And while the kids are having a great time on their own, the adults can enjoy a special pampering designed just for them.
Many ships now provide an internet café where you can surf the web and keep up with your email. For those of us who are addicted to the internet this can be a real godsend.
When you are planning a cruise vacation with the family you need to evaluate your vacation budget. There are many cruises that meet a wide variety of budgets. Do a little research and make a list of the ones that fit yours.
Then you need to take a close look at the activities and entertainment offered by those cruises you have chosen. Make a list of the ones that are most important to you and choose the cruise that offers the closest fit for the things that you want to do.
If you have children you will want to be sure that the cruise you pick has activities that will keep them occupied and having fun. That shouldn’t be too difficult.
For young children be careful. Some cruise lines will offer babysitting services while others will not allow you to bring very young children. If you have an infant be sure to bring the baby things as the ship may not be able supply diapers, formula or other special infant needs.
Another area to investigate is the medical facilities. Kids can present special problems, especially when they get excited. The ship must be equipped and ready to deal with those occasional injuries from all the running, jumping and climbing that kids tend to like.
A family cruise vacation can be perfect because it has something for every member of the family. Nobody gets left out. Try it once and you just may get addicted to this great vacation.
