The ultimate family holiday


If you think cruising is only for the more mature, think again. More like floating cities than mere ships, today’s luxury liners offer something for everyone.


The popular image of cruising is that it’s the holiday of choice for people in the twilight of their lives. Nothing could be further from the truth! Cruising is an experience that’s equally rewarding for everyone, whether you’re aged 2, 12 or 72, and whatever you enjoy doing on holiday.


Family-friendly ships show just as much attention to detail when it comes to delighting younger travellers as they do for adult passengers. Children’s play areas have all the latest equipment and the friendliest supervisors so young cruisers can enjoy themselves to the full whilst the adults savour their time together without any distractions. From puppet shows and dance and movement classes for toddlers to sports days, music sessions, game shows, teenagers’ karaoke and discos, the facilities aboard larger ships are nothing short of dazzling.


Moving ashore, organised events could include visits to waterparks, trips to see dolphins, mountain biking and more. Your children could learn to cook, kayak or keep fit, benefiting from the patient tuition of expert instructors; in fact the only thing they will not be able to do is become bored. Some ships even have onboard waterparks, complete with huge water slides, zip lines and climbing facilities, so whilst you’re enjoying a stroll on deck, being pampered in the luxury spa or sipping a relaxed drink on your balcony you’ll know the kids are having the time of their lives.


From the very young to the young at heart, everybody is guaranteed an amazing time on a family cruise holiday – and everyone will return home relaxed, refreshed and enriched.
