Family Friendly Cruise Lines {Press Release}

I've never been on a cruise. Have you? I'm so afraid I'd get sea sick but people have told me that it's probably unlikely since I would barely feel the boat moving. {Perhaps you have some helpful advice on this?}

If I did take a cruise, however, I would definitely want it to be a family event and bring the kiddos along. While I would be looking for something specifically tailored to them, I would also be looking for a cruise that would allow the hubster and I some alone time.

Where would I even begin with a search like that?

The following press release shares a few ideas as well as a website that can help you in your search for the perfect, family cruise as listed by Steven Fischer, a travel expert.

What kind of cruise would you be looking forward to if you were planning one?


A BETTER WAY TO TRAVEL WITH FAMILY Highlights the Best Family Cruise Ships

Orlando, Fla. – March 27, 2012 – Cruise lines reported more than a 50% increase in families setting sail with children under the age of 3 in tow. To accommodate families with small kids, many cruise ships offer kids-friendly pools, children’s menus and 24-hour room service for things like milk, finger foods and extra towels.

Many cruise lines guarantee a balance of family togetherness filled with fun, adventure and playtime with adult-only relaxation and downtime. Parents looking to book their next family vacation should know that the advantages to cruising for families are endless, and planning a cruise vacation can be more simple and easy-going than you’ve ever imagined.

“Tired from a day of exploration?” asks Steven Fischer, vice president of cruise development at Travel Holdings, Inc. “No need to stress about where to eat or how much dinner will cost. Your ship is an all-inclusive floating hotel with all-you-can-eat meals, abundant entertainment and best of all a place to keep your belonging as you venture on excursions and trips. As many parents know, being able to visit different destinations without packing, unpacking and lugging around suitcases is a golden plus.”

Since there are so many ships out there promising a kid-friendly experience, finding one that’s right for your family can take some time. Luckily for you, we’ve laid out the best-suited cruise lines for the most memorable family vacation.

“Disney’s Cruise Line is great for families with younger children,” Fischer says. “Flounder’s Reef Nursery on the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder is well equipped for babies under 3. The Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy ships’ It’s a Small World Nursery cares for children 3 months old to 3 years old allowing parents to enjoy a more adult-oriented adventure while their little one is watched over by trained caretakers.”

It has a nursery filled with toys, bottle warmers, snacks and cribs. There are two rooms to separate active and sleepy babies. With great supervision for both rooms, parents are able to enjoy a romantic dinner knowing their little one is well taken care of.

Royal Caribbean International’s babysitting program is open for in-cabin sitting from 8 a.m. to 2 a.m. for children 12 months and over. This gives parents the relief they need to take in a night of dancing or an hour to relax and read by the pool. If mom and dad want to join in on the fun, the ship’s Aqua Tots and Aqua Babies setup allow them to partake in 45-minute staff-led music and storytelling play sessions.

Both Carnival and Norwegian Cruise Lines offer a kids camp for children 2 to 5 years old. “But one strategic difference may make you prefer Carnival just little bit more,” Fischer says. “Carnival changes diapers.”

While Norwegian has great entertainment like Nickelodeon at Sea and character breakfasts with SpongeBob and Dora the Explorer, its counselors will page you when your little one needs a fresh change.
