Cruising Europe with Kids

Posted October 29th, 2012

Europe is one of the most majestic destinations in the world, offering travellers cultural beauty, delectable cuisines and access to an abundance of historically significant landmarks. While it remains to be a popular destination for holidaymakers of all ages, it can be challenging when travelling with small children.

With so much transportation involved in making your way between various countries, travel can easily become tiresome

for kids. Cruising provides a great alternative for families travelling with children. Unlike your regular European holiday, you’ll only need to unpack once, you’ll have a comfortable, safe and reliable means of transportation and you’ll also have access to an abundance of on-board activities for the entire family. If you’d like to take your kids on the journey of a lifetime, consider a cruising holiday for your European adventure.

Cruise Dining & Accommodation

One of the most enticing aspects of a cruise holiday, whether you’re travelling with kids or not, is the great range of dining facilities on-board, along with the world class accommodation standards. When embarking on a holiday abroad, it is not uncommon to be surprised by the lack of facilities that your hotel provides; particularly when the brochure photos were so impressive! With a cruise holiday, there are no unexpected surprises, just the best accommodation options available to guests.

While Europe is known for having some of the most delectable cuisines in the world, they may not always suit the restricted palate of younger travellers. With a European cruise, you will still have the opportunity to indulge in the traditional tastes of Europe, while also having the option of eating some family favourites.

Types of Family Cruises

A number of renowned family cruise lines frequent the waters of the Mediterranean, making this the perfect holiday experience for the entire family. Disney Cruise Lines, for instance, offers a number of features that have been specifically designed for travelling families. Various on-board kids’ clubs are great for children of all ages and are sure to keep the youngest ones entertained, while mum and dad indulge in a relaxing day spa or intimate music lounge. In true Disney style, guests can expect to be treated to the best entertainment at sea, with fireworks, dance parties, talent shows and more!

MSC Cruises also offer a range of family cruises through Europe, allowing parents to take their children on a journey of discovery, through Marseille, Barcelona, Valencia, Palermo and Civitavecchia. Cruise lines, such as MSC cruises, often provide travelling families with unbeatable discounts, including ‘kids cruise free – just pay port taxes’.

The benefits of cruising Europe with your kids are virtually endless. Whether you are looking for a short getaway or are planning an epic adventure, you are sure to enjoy your time on-board together. Discover historical landmarks and timeless cultures, all in the safety and comfort of your world class cruise liner.
