Family Cruises – Some Points to Consider

The family cruise market is buzzing with agents reporting an increase in interest from families for their offerings. The stereotype of cruises being only for OAPs no longer holds any ground. Modern cruises provide excellent entertainment for all members of the family. From waterparks to cinemas and casinos, there is lots to entertain those young and old. The Disney cruise is one that is particularly popular with kids (and big kids) and you can get great Disney cruise deals throughout the year.

However there are some points to consider when booking a family cruise.

• Health conditions of the particular cruise you book should be checked thoroughly. For example, some cruises won’t allow pregnant women on boards.
• Like any trip always check the additional fees. Always book travel insurance. Kids are lovely most of the time but they have a nasty habit of picking up illnesses at exactly the wrong time. Most travel insurers will refund the holiday if a member of the travelling party picks up an illness that makes them unable to travel.
• Another tip is to check the onboard prices. Drinks are notoriously expensive on cruises so be sure to check out the prices of food and drink when working out your costs.
• It is also worth having a look on the tipping policy on board the ship.

Great family cruise deals are available at a huge variety of locations so find one and enjoy.
