For those parents who are apprehensive of taking their kids on a cruise holiday, you will be surprised at how fast kids adapt to the fun ambiance on board these kids cruises. Compared to regular vacations where you have to constantly think of ways to keep the kids happy, kids’ cruises offer plenty of fun and excitement on board.
The cruise line has bought many ships from other cruise lines (the former Sun Viking from Royal Caribbean, the former Golden Princess from Princess Cruises and even the former Baltic ferries Athena and Kalypso. There are special kids’ cruises that have amenities and activities especially suited for children of all ages. Always a favorite is scenic cruising in Frederick Sound and Stephens Passage, considered the most prolific whale watching waters in Alaska.
More family oriented facilities that you will find in the many cruises include arcades, family cabins, playrooms, discos, teen centers, and minimally charged babysitting amenities. Disney is also offering cruises combined with three or four days stay at Walt Disney World as a package, which guarantees that the cruises will be sold out. Some of them which are well known are Carnival Cruises, Hebridean Island cruises, Celebrity Cruises, Costa Cruises, cruise Crystal, Holland America, Cunard, Fred Olsen Cruises and Louis Cruise Lines cruises. However, the smaller ships of Star Cruises gives you the opportunity to explore exotic ports of call and some people appreciate flexible dining more.
The Bahamas is an excellent tourist destination all year-round, but only a handful of cruise liners offer short cruises. The Norwegian Gem and Norwegian Breakaway sail from New York to Bermuda, Florida / Bahamas, Caribbean and New England/Canada year-round. By contrast, the main activity on Star Cruises is, as my friend described, queuing for one buffet after another”. It has two sister ships, Serenade of the Seas and Vision of the Seas, which ply exclusively in Alaska.
But even the lowest fare on the best cruises provides for clean and comfortable accommodation and a daily cleaning service. One of the biggest names in cruises today, Carnival is a fantastic choice for senior travel on a budget. Now that Cuba has lifted restrictions barring Cuban-born people from traveling to the island by sea, Carnival will begin offering cruises from Miami. Apart from the mainstream big ships, there are several small ships offering Alaskan cruises for those on tighter budgets. Best cruises are the ones that provide the holidaymaker with an experience they can enjoy and will remember fondly in future years. Not only are these cruises designed just for the pleasure of your kids, you and your spouse can also indulge in many activities exclusively designed for you.
