With Plan a Cruise Month being halfway over, we have had a lot of people ask why cruising is a great vacation for families. There are so many reasons cruising is quickly becoming the best vacation for families.
Cruising offers families a chance to literally see the world while only unpacking one time. There are so many destinations and home ports to choose from, you can really customize the perfect vacation for your family. With ports scattered world wide, there is always a new destination to cruise to. From Alaska to the Bahamas and from the Mediterranean Sea to the Panama Canal, there are so many options. You can visit multiple places on one cruise and enjoy the comfort of your stateroom for the duration. Hassle free! Who doesn’t want to wake up each morning in a new destination?
The value of a cruise is one that can’t be beat. With prices for some cruises starting at $100 per person, per night, that can be less expensive than roadtripping to visit Aunt Sally.
Cruising is a family friendly vacation. Most ships offer programs based on the ages of children onboard. This means, your 10 year old won’t be stuck in the same club as their 5 year old sister! These clubs offer different activities based on the age group they cater to. Along with this, there are adult only locations on most ships so you can have a romantic evening poolside with your loved one while the kids are off enjoying time with their new friends!
With so many onboard activities there is very little time to be bored. Pools, sports, shows, and even rock climbing and go carts now keep people of all ages busy. After dinner, why not take in a Broadway style show? Or, spend the evenings hanging out poolside while your kids have fun on waterslides? These are things that can be done on most cruises!

Cruising offers so many ways to bring your family together, but can offer those moments that all parents need. A little romance goes a long way. Leave the kids in one of the clubs and enjoy a spa day. Rekindle your romance with one of the adult only activities that can be found onboard. Fall in love once again under the moonlight while taking a late night stroll around the ship.
There are so many more reasons that cruising should be on your radar, these are just a few. Cruising can be an amazing way to see the world while getting to know your family! I am planning a cruise for Thanksgiving 2018. I let my children take part in picking our excursions. Much to my surprise, they have picked “adventure and history”. They have decided that they want to climb to the temples in Costa Maya and go cave tubing in Belize. Hiking to a Mayan temple in Costa Maya! Who are these kids? I never would have thought that this would be their first pick for a cruise excursion. They amaze me every day! Even a cruise vacation can be thrilling and educational.
