family cruise


Postby alexjames on Mon Dec 16, 2013 11:04 am

Can anyone advise me on what is the best cruise to take a family or if there is any difference.

Is there any difference in appropriateness between a Caribbean cruise and a Mediterranean cruise when choosing for a family. I.e. is one more family friendly that the other or am I just being too cautious.

I have been reading about both ( ) & ( ) and from the brief descriptions it would seem Caribbean are more for older but I just wanted to check.

The best cruise for a family may well be the Royal Caribbean line these are fun ships geared to younger people.

You have a vast choice but why not look for a taster cruise (2/3 days)

For a holiday this year try the Indepenance of the Seas sailing regularly from Southampton, it features rock climbing walls flow riders and great kids clubs.

Do shop round for best prices try at least four sites, Med cruises would be better for you rather than the Caribbean as a fist cruise, more to do and see.

You don't say how old your family is but there is also the Disney line sailing the Med next year.
Cruising is like 'Being in the Garden of Eating'
