Someone to Watch the Kids
Today's modern cruise vessels have great play-time facilities for kids and well-organized children's
programs for kids of any age. Cruise lines hire professionally-trained
youth staff members, who typically have a teaching background.
While the kids are having a great time together, you can do some of the
things you find so rewarding on vacation. Parents can relax by the pool,
enjoy a good book, watch a movie, attend a cooking
demonstration or enjoy the spa. It's all possible on-board
At the end of the day, the entire family can dine together at dinner or
split-up into smaller groups, it's your choice. If parents are more
comfortable having children dining in a less formal atmosphere than the
adults, many of the youth programs allow the children to dine together as
part of the program. So while Mom and Dad enjoy a 5 course meal, the
kids can go to a pizza party of their own.
Best of all, parents won't hear "are we there yet?"
on this vacation. Kids bored on a cruise ship? NEVER!
