A cruise can be one of the best ways for a family to spend a long holiday together without having the hassle of planning the entire trip yourself. The only tough part of planning your family cruise holiday is trying to decide where you should go. Listed below are five of the top cruise destinations to consider for your next family holiday.
There are different options for cruises to Mexico, as ships frequently tour both coasts. Each coast features amazing beaches and allows you to tour ancient Mayan ruins. The best time to visit Mexico is from November to April when the weather is less humid and cooler. However, this is also the time when Mexico’s tourist destinations are the most hectic.
There are even more options for European cruises, as you can choose to sail through the seas of either northern or southern Europe. You can explore wonderful and historic European cities and take in a little culture. The activities for families are better in southern Europe, as it features more beaches and other family activities. The best time for a cruise through the Mediterranean is in the early or late summer, as the towns are very busy in high summer.
Alaska is a great place for any family that loves adventure, although it is best with older children. Take in the picturesque scenery and explore the oceans and shores of this natural wonderland. The activities in Alaska are much more outdoor oriented, so you won’t have to worry about crowds of tourists everywhere. The best time to cruise Alaska is during the summer.
The Caribbean has many scenic beaches and forests to explore, and also features many vibrant port cities unlike any other. Short times between ports of call is a bonus for families who want to spend more time off the boat. Any time of year is a great time to head to the Caribbean. While it can be much more humid and hotter in the summer, you won’t have to fight with thousands of tourists like you will in the winter months.
For families who want to take advantage of all of the kid friendly activities available on the ship, the South Pacific can make for a great cruise destination. The different islands are culturally varied. It is best to avoid the South Pacific during the rainy season.
