Cruising & Kids

One of the biggest things parents look into when booking a cruise whether it be their fifth or first is on board facilities for their children and let me tell you, the facilities on board are far better than any kids club you will find on a land based holiday.

My sister was 12 when she first cruised. I decided in the summer of 2010 that I would bring her with me for a 2 week cruise around the Mediterranean and she loved every second of it.

She was a little apprehensive at first about going into the kids club which is understandable. It was a summer cruise so you can imagine how many kids were on board. After eventually getting over her butterfly’s that was it, I barely set eyes on her when we were on board.

I made a rule that because it was just the two of us we would eat together every evening then after that she was free to do as she pleased, I guess you could say we slept in the same cabin and ate together, that was about it when we were on board.

Every other day she was coming back to the cabin with things she had made including crispy cakes  and other wonderful things (I say wonderful because I can’t be entirely sure what some of them were) but they looked good!

To this day she still goes on and on about when she will cruise again, she is desperate to get back on board and I also think it ignited a love of the ocean and ships inside her. She is quite the little cruise ship boff now, forever coming out with oh Royal Caribbean this and P&O that. She truly did have the time of her life.

I’m not a kid (honestly, I’m not!) so I can’t really give you a firsthand account of what it is really like for children on board but, as we speak my sister is writing a very special blog piece. Cruising for kids by kids. Who better than to really tell you what it is like than a kid? So, parents! Please check back in a few days, maybe you are travelling on board with children for the first time, I am sure another 14 year old explaining what it is like will carry more weight than if you try to explain yourself. (I know you know exactly what I mean)
