4 Reasons Norwegian Cruise Line is Perfect for Families

Cruising

Cruising seems tailored for families. With great deals (and there are a lot right now), endless entertainment and great shore excursions catered to children, it seems like you can’t go wrong, but not all cruises are created equal. Choosing a line specially designed to accommodate families with children is crucial when planning a family vacation and Norwegian Cruise Line makes your decision easy.

 

Norwegian offers family suites, giving travelers enough space for the whole family to be comfortable. Safety is a major concern for families with kids and these suites ensure you all get to stay together either in a multiroom suite or with interconnected cabins. These options provide plenty of room for families to have fun spending time together, while still giving kids and parents some much-needed privacy. These rooms come with private balconies and many also include concierge and butler services.

 

Norwegian’s family-friendly cruises offer great kids programs for all age groups. The Guppies program is for children aged 6 months to 3 years and offers two options — a nursery program where parents can drop off their little ones or an option for parents to stay and engage with them in activities like sensory play. Kids aged 3–5 can participate in Turtles with storytelling, treasure hunts and arts and crafts, while kids aged 6–9 can join Seals, where they can play video games and sports or learn circus skills like juggling and rope spinning. Kids aged 10–12 can take part in the Dolphins program where they engage with kids their own age. These activities culminate in family fun when kids get to perform circus acts or musical acts for their parents or when the whole family gets together for activities like game shows, pizza making and sports challenges.

 

While these programs are created to keep your kids busy with scheduled activities with other children their own age, there are still plenty of off-script adventures for family to have on board Norwegian’s ships. Water slides, bowling alleys and live entertainment keep everyone having fun during long hours at sea.

 

In addition to all the incredible activities and amenities Norwegian offers for families, they go a step further by offering many cruises where kids cruise for free. Itineraries like an 11-day Panama Canal cruise; a nine-day Scandinavia, Russia, and Baltic cruise; a seven-day cruise of Alaska; or the Greek Isles, are all great opportunities for a family to see the world with the kids, while putting those savings toward bigger and better vacations that may otherwise be unaffordable.

 

Families who take the time to find the right family-friendly cruise line don’t just have great vacations, they have great times together. When everyone enjoys themselves, great memories are made.

How to Prepare Kids to Eat Foreign Foods Before a Trip

While adults may consider new foods among the greatest joys of visiting new places, unfamiliar food may be the biggest hurdle for parents traveling with young children. Most kids are instinctively resistant to new flavors and to foods that look strange to them. A little advance planning can help ease kids into new cuisines and flavors.
