5 reasons why you should book a family cruise

The start of a new year can be a bleak time for anyone. Cold weather and short amounts of daylight are just some of the reasons you may be feeling down but you can quickly boost your mood by booking something to look forward to. This may give you the strength you need to get through this winter. 

One of the best things you can book for this is a holiday. However, if you’ve grown tired of the traditional beach holidays or weekend getaways, you may be looking for a new type of vacation and we can help with that.

We believe that cruise holidays could be perfect for you and the family. They’re already super popular types of holidays in the UK with the most recent data revealing that over 1.6 million people travelled on a cruise in 2022.

If you want to find out why a family cruise could be ideal for you and give you the ultimate booking to look forward to, continue reading our guide below. 

Great deals can help you save 

When you book a package cruise holiday, it may prove cheaper than a traditional getaway on land. It’s estimated that a regular family holiday can cost around £4,400, which may be too expensive given the current cost of living crisis

Instead, choose cruise holidays to get a package deal that covers accommodation, food and entertainment for a fraction of the cost. 

See the world 

You can board a cruise from Southampton and travel to destinations around the globe to discover new cultures, see the wonders of the world and meet new people. This can take you to places like the Bahamas where you’ll enjoy beautiful beaches to relax on or fascinating cities like Barcelona to explore. 

The varied nature of the locations you visit means you shouldn’t tire of reaching new places and you can enjoy them at your leisure. 

Onboard fun 

If you’re worried about having too much downtime as you sail the seas, don’t be. Cruises are equipped with fun for the whole family with some of the common activities you’ll find being:

  • Live shows
  • Cinemas
  • Nightclubs
  • Spas
  • Educational experiences

Enjoy quality time with each other 

Family cruise ships encourage families to enjoy quality time with one another through experiences and activities, so you can be confident you’ll grow a little closer by the end of your trip. Quality time requires balance, however, and cruise ships can cater to that, so family members can have time to themselves if needed too. This helps to create a great atmosphere and you can even make new friends onboard too.
