Planning Family Cruise

Check on the children’s facilities.

Verify if the ship provides essential items that your children will need. If you have a young kid traveling with you, check if they have cribs, high chair, toys and other stuff that children need. You might as well ask if they have a special menu for children.

Ask if they provide babysitting services.

Now this is really important, as you cannot be with your child all the time. The reason you had the cruise is to relax and unwind, hence, you cannot always be with your child. A babysitter can give you the break that you need so you can go to the spa, have a swim or enjoy the dancing. Do not forget how much it cost, by the way.

The activities conducted onboard.

Inquire on the programs they have for the family. Cruise liners have a program of activities for the whole family to enjoy as well as those intended for children depending on their ages.

The cabins.

You can either get a separate cabin for your children or get one that can accommodate the whole family. Whatever your choice is, make sure that everybody will be comfortable and safe for the children. If you are a family of four, I would suggest you get the standard cabin, as it has 4 beds.

Your luggage.

Ensure that everything you need is packed inside your luggage. Traveling with kids would entail to bring more kid’s clothes. Toiletries such as lotion, baby wipes, alcohol, etc. must be included in your luggage. Bring a first-aid kit, and have plaster, seasick pills and other medical items that may be needed during your travel.
