What is your best insider tip for cruising with the
To create a memorable holiday experience for your
whole family! You will all experience the same
holiday, but remember it for a variety of different
reasons. In today’s hectic life, cruising provides a
great way to reconnect with the family and enjoy
quality time together.
What are the highlights?
All your main meals, on board entertainment and
activities are included in the cost of your holiday.
You know upfront what the majority of the cost of
your holiday will be and it’s an easy way for families
to budget for their holiday. We always say that a
cruise is the ultimate parent’s holiday, because we
don’t have to cook or clean.
Themed dinners and special events mean that you
and your family will have the chance to dress up like
super stars and strut your stuff down the red carpet.
It’s always special to get a bit fancy and capture a
memorable family photo, and you don’t often get the
chance to do so.
Are there opportunities to do things together, as
well as separately?
Absolutely. There are many activities where
everyone can participate and have fun as a family.
Every cruise ship has different specialty activities,
from giant outdoor chess to mini-golf and even
family-friendly trivia events. During the evening, you
will have the opportunity to sit on a deck chair and
watch a movie on big screen, dance the night away
at an all-ages deck party, sing karaoke and watch
the amazing dancers perform spectacular stage
The combination of Kids Club and adult only areas
means that you can spend as much or as little time
together as you want. Cruise ships today offer so
many features that it’s easy to slip away if you need
some time to yourself, whether it’s a sunny corner
where you can read your book, or a session in the
Is there any valuable learning that my family can
take away from a cruise?
I think this type of travelling is great for small
children, as they learn to engage with others and
make the most of one location.
Enrichment and educational programs are all the
rage on cruise ships these days, so passengers of
all ages can come away with new knowledge. These
programs don’t just focus on the history and culture
of the destinations visited; they also teach skills such
as cooking, dancing or even a foreign language.
Any other tips or insider information?
We always recommend to take their own power
adaptor in case the ship they are travelling on does
not have Australian power points, and if they are
are cruising to an island paradise, always invest
in a good pair of reef shoes to wear on the beach,
especially for kids. Often you can have a bit of a walk
out to the beautiful sandy beach and reef shoes are
comfortable and suitable footwear that protect you
from any stray coral. Pack walkie talkies to keep
track of the family whilst they are on board the ship
and before your board a Pacific cruise make sure
you have the snorkel and flippers pack for everyone.
Family friendly cruises are on sail now, with P&O,
Royal Caribbean and Carnival starting
from $349 per person quad share.
