It can be difficult to settle on a destination for your next holiday when you’re in a multi-generational family. Your young kids may not necessarily want to go on the walking holiday that their grandparents do and a holiday geared towards kids’ theme parks may not be everyone’s cup of tea.
Well, we have the solution. A cruise may not be the first holiday idea that comes to mind when you’re trying to cater for your entire family, but it could be the perfect solution to keeping everyone happy. 1.78 million cruise ship passengers in 2015 can’t be wrong!
On-Board Entertainment for All
Your family members, regardless of their age, will find something to keep them busy on a cruise ship. Whether you’re the type of holiday-goer who likes to relax around the pool, or if you want to go for a run around the track, go to the gym or have a treatment in the spa – most cruise ships have all these facilities for their passengers.
On the evening, the entertainment is unrivalled – Broadway-style shows, musicians, comedians and magicians can keep the whole family busy, and many even have cinema screens for guests who prefer to relax with a film.
Good Food and Drink
Okay, we admit it, sampling the culinary delights of a new country is often our favourite part of a holiday. This doesn’t change when you pick a cruise. You can choose from a number of dining options and a variety of cuisines when travelling on a cruise ship.
Take the Regal Princesscruise shipsfor example – they have sixteen dining options for their guests, one of which is a privately-served five-course gourmet meal, complete with champagne. As well as their specialty restaurants, they have a relaxed top deck buffet and bars for after-dinner drinks. So, you certainly won’t go hungry on your cruise holiday!
Travelling the World
A cruise is the perfect way to visit a number of different countries without all the stress of travelling and moving hotel rooms with the entire family in tow. You’ll have one cabin for the entire trip, whilst visiting many different locations.
Take the cruises available at Bolsover Cruise Clubfor example –you could be visiting Rome, Naples, Dubrovnik, Corfu, Corsica and Barcelona (plus others) all in one trip! With so many destinations, there’s sure to be something for everyone at the port stops, whether that’s shopping, exploring or seeing the sights.
If you’re stuck for ideas for where to go on your next family holiday, why just stick to one place? If you choose to book a cruise holiday, you can visit a number of different destinations and enjoy plenty of good food and entertainment on the way, whilst travelling between the port stops. There’s something for the whole family on a cruise - what more could you ask for?
