We have been thinking of taking the kids on a cruise for some time now. But unfortunately, that’s what it’s always been, just a thought. To be honest the only thing that put me off was that our second born was too young to take along. By that I mean, tantrums, not really that compliant and the thought of a massive meltdown on a confined cruise-liner would be horrifying! If you are parents then I am sure you can relate. Saying that he is a little older now and less feral! Hehe and I have since been looking at family-friendly cruise destinations and have received some fab suggestions from these lovely bloggers.
Claire from Life , Love and Dirty Dishes –
We loved the fjords. Lots of outdoor space for the kids to run around and explore. When they got fed up we were never too far from the ship for them to get back to the kids clubs. Plus the awesome scenery.
Disney Castaway Cay
Leyla from This Day I Love –
We love Disney Castaway Cay. It’s Disney private island so the only people there are on the boat with you. As a result, it feels really special to be there. There is a kids club on the island too. Plus because it is part of the cruise all food/drink/ice cream on the island is included too. You can read her lovely post here – Disney Cruise February 2018
Sara-Jane from Keep Up With The Jones Family -Castaway Cay in the Bahamas. We cruised with Disney to Mickey Mouse’s private Island and it’s the closest I will ever come to paradise! I’ve never felt as rested or as pampered – and the boys loved scuba diving and feeding trained stingrays who recognised Mickey Mouse! There were waiters on their beaches, beautiful flowers everywhere and the bluest sea and sky.
Kayleigh from Candy Floss Dreams –
We did a mini cruise to Bruges and it was lovely! Lots of chocolate shops, nice walks for the family and plenty of history too.
Pete from Household money Saving – Several years ago we took a cruise from Fort Lauderdale around the Bahamas. The weather is always lovely and warm and the ships are impressive. It’s quite an eye-opener to see the change in culture from Florida to the islands, especially when you consider how close they are.
Laura from Life With Baby Kicks – We did the Caribbean it was fabulous over Christmas. Lots of winter sun and everyone in port was so welcoming of both us and the kids (ok so more the kids) it’s certainly got us hooked on cruising.
Vikki from Family Travel With Ellie – We did a Disney Cruise around the Mediterranean. It was amazing in every way. We visited Barcelona, Naples, Rome, La Spezia and Villefranche. As you would expect it was exceptionally family friendly, so much fun and adventure and the food and service was incredible.
Are you planning a family cruise holiday? You may want to check out things to do in Lanzarote. A fab place for all of the family.
