One of the best family holiday experiences is a cruise. Setting sail for distant shores from the comfort of your cruise cabin is one of the most memorable holidays your family can take together. The reasons for cruising are many but here are 4 of the best.

Visiting several countries in a week – A typical seven night itinerary includes four to five countries. Each morning your ship arrives at a new port and you can spend the day exploring the city. Venice, Rome, Barcelona, Dubrovnik…these are just some of the exotic destinations waiting to be explored.

Activities for all the family:

Imagine a holiday where there are kids and teens club activities to keep your children busy all day. This is what a cruise offers all the members of the family. Rock climbing walls, water slides, mini golf, parties and snacks are just some of the day time activities for children of all ages.

All Inclusive holiday:

A cruise includes all day snacks and meals and some drinks on-board at no additional cost. This can mean savings for the family which makes the cruising experience is value for money. Pizzas, burgers and hot dogs are available all day while fresh meals are served all day long and late into the evenings as well.

Ease of stay:

Packing and unpacking while on holiday – it can prove to be tiresome, especially for Mum. One of the advantages of cruising is that once you’ve boarded the ship, you can unpack and relax for the duration of the trip.
