Are you looking for something for your next family vacation? But your children are bored with the same beach vacation and building sand castles, large hotel complexes without a children’s program? Do your children want to go on a journey of discovery together with other children, head for the next island as pirates and give commands as a captain on the steering wheel? Ships, ports, the wide sea – that means great adventure for children on a cruise. Watch the other ships on deck – every little one quickly becomes a pirate. Play captains and sailors!
Families will be happy here – A > A cruise with children is the opportunity to spend a successful family vacation and to be perfectly happy. Gone are the days when cruises were for well-heeled seniors. Many shipping companies have recognized the trend towards family cruises. In a casual atmosphere and with family-friendly furnishings, the family ships say: Cast off! The AIDA and club ships are particularly recommended "My ship" from TUI Cruises with German-speaking crew. MSC Cruises and Hapag Lloyd also advertise cruises with children on their luxury liners, as do Costa Cruises, NCL and Royal Caribbean Cruises.
On a cruise ship, you and your children don’t have to do without anything: lounging, relaxing, interesting shore excursions and games, fun and entertainment for the kids. Who wants to miss the pirate party or the latest film in the children’s cinema? From children’s disco to handicrafts, splashing, slides to pirate games, where the ship is boarded in costumes, everything is offered. There will be no boredom here! Children from different nations play, paint, do gymnastics and dance together and have fun on the decks during a treasure hunt or safari. For the teens there are disco and game shows in the evenings.
Excellent care and entertainment for your children and yourself!
On the AIDA club ships it is the kids club, in which the children are looked after in different age groups, on the Costa cruise ships the children are in the squok club, on an MSC family cruise in the mini or junior club.
Parents know their children are well looked after on a cruise adventure. Here you can also relax on the sundeck or enjoy the romantic starry sky in the evening, dance or go to the in-house theater. Most cruise ships also offer childcare and babysitting services at a late hour. A family cruise offers the perfect mix of relaxation for parents, but also enough time to spend together as a family.
When cruising with children, it is important that child-friendly food is served and that the children’s wishes are taken into account. After all, the little ones should like it! It should be balanced, no uniform food and nothing too exotic that children do not dare to approach. If a glass falls over, the friendly waiter is at your side – after all, it happens on a cruise with children. Many ships have an extra menu for children and no fixed meal times. Children up to the age of 17 usually travel free of charge or for a small fee in their parents’ cabin. Nowadays, ships with family cabins or cabins with connecting doors are ideal for families.
Discover the world and take part in dream trips!
Particularly popular destinations for family cruises are those that do not require long journeys and that guarantee safe shore excursions for children. Destinations in the Mediterranean are equally attractive and worth seeing as the Scandinavian countries. Go ashore! Family trips entice with adventures and so the little ones experience the treasures and cultures of the world early on and their spirit of discovery is awakened. Children’s excursions go to the zoo, scavenger hunt or to the house of Pippi Longstocking. If the parents are on the move, childcare on board the ship offers an attractive program, whereby mom and dad are certainly not missed.
Who as child was already on a cruise, will certainly want to experience an adventure on the high seas again as an adult!
