Alaska Cruises For Families

Cruising to Alaska with your family is an excellent vacation choice!  Today's cruise ships are large and feature a myriad of amenities that will appeal to all ages.  Combine that with the majesty of Alaska's incredible scenery and your family will experience an unforgettable vacation.  Onboard almost every modern cruise ship are multiple swimming pools with one usually reserved for children, casual restaurants serving hot dogs and hamburgers with fries and shakes, video arcades and even the famous rock climbing walls.  together with specialty dining venues, martini and champagne bars, adults-only areas, spectacular Broadway and Vegas style shows and extensive spa facilities, every member of the family is well catered for.

What to do with the little ones when you want a bit of peace and quiet in the spa?  All large cruise ships offer Childrens and Youth Programs.  Programs are usually split into three or four groups, one for two to four year olds, others for five to eight, nine to twelve and finally one for the teens.  One the large ships, each age segment offers seperate facilities featuring amenities suited to the age group.  Of course there are many trained counsellors entertaining their charges and overseeing their safety.  The teens have their own coffee rooms or teen age discos with soda fountains, video games, etc.  Families could meet up for meals but otherwise "do their own thing" if they choose to do so.  The Childrens and Youth programs are all complimentary.

While the kids are off on their (supervised) own, Mom and Dad can enjoy a romantic couples massage or an aromatherapy treatment in the spa, or Dad could go into the cigar lounge for a smoke and a cognac while Mom shops her heart out in the ship's many duty-free boutiques.  After overseeing the kids for dinner in the casual restaurant (no need to dress up formally), Mom and Dad can enjoy a romantic gourment dinner in the Dining Room or in one of the Specialty Restaurants.  Of course, babysitting can be arranged with the Front Desk for a small charge. 

Alternatively for multi genrational families who are cruising together, a good travel agent can ensure that all family members dine together in one or more large tables that are prereserved in the dinign room.  The travel agent can also book shore excrusions for the entire family to enjoy.  If the group is large enough, a private van or motorcoach can be arranged for just the family members to go sightseeing with a local guide.  A private cocktail party can be arranged in one of the ship's lounges if there is a celebration. 

Truly, one of the best ways for a family to vacation together is to take a cruise to Alaska.  Incredible scenery, wildlife sightings, a chance to enjoy the great outdoors together with luxurious accommodations, great food and entertainment and high safety standards all combined in one fabulous vacation.  Call one of our Cruise Experts now!
