Let’s take a look at some of the cruise offerings that can make your vacation just as awesome for everyone in your family.
Clubhouses for the young cruisers
Cruise ships like the MV Grand Celebration are well equipped to keep young ones entertained. Between the age group of 3-6, there’s the Kruzers club with trained supervisors to watch over your kids while they explore the jungle gym, outdoor kids pool, slides and much more. For kids between 7-12 the chill club offer gaming consoles, mini movie theatres to keep them entertained. Children between 13-17 can hang out at the Vibe, an arcade with interactive games, basketball shooting contest and a place to meet and make new friends.
Multiple dining options
The highly ranked family cruises offer multiple dining options on board. From fine dining to buffet options – food is not a problem. Kids are known picky eaters. Most family-friendly cruise ships offer a special kids menu with items like Mac n Cheese and other food items that are a hit with the kids. Rest assured, with the ambiance and menus items offered your kids won’t be throwing a tantrum on board. And as for the parents, what could be better than a gourmet dinner for two by the soft glow of a candle light while you gently cruise across the Bahamas?
Clubs & Casinos for the party animals
If you or your significant other love to let your hair loose, then that’s covered too! Most luxury cruise ships have clubs and casinos, where you could grab a few drinks, move to some heart-pumping music, and even dabble in a few card games. The MV Grand Celebration, for example, also houses the Voltage disco for all the party animals on board. You can also try your luck with a hand or two at the Vegas-style Par-A-Dice casino on board.
Family-friendly theatre entertainment
For a more family-friendly time together, choose a cruise ship with an on-board theatrical show that can be enjoyed by all members of the family. The Grand Celebration hosts the Legends Grand Theatre which is the perfect spot to enjoy some light-hearted entertainment. Hilarious stand-up comedy acts, choreographed dance routines, magic shows – this stage is the perfect place on board to spend some fun moments with the entire family.
Relaxing spa experience for young parents
While the kids are off playing or exploring the ship, the parents can de-stress at the on board spa, which is a popular feature on most luxury cruise liners. If you’re sailing aboard the Grand Celebration, then you must drop by the Indulgence Spa & Salon for a few hours. Therapeutic massages, body wraps and other relaxing spa treatments will rejuvenate your mind, body and soul. We recommend an early spa visit so that you can recharge your batteries to take on all the adventures that lay ahead of you.
Things to do at the Grand Bahama Island
The real challenge of the vacation starts, however, when the ship reaches its destination. While young parents might be more interested in heading out into the town and getting some shopping done, kids are definitely more drawn to the exciting beach activities. When the Bahamas Paradise cruise ship docks on the Grand Bahama island, you can have the best of both worlds. Your holiday in the Bahamas can be either about relaxing on the beach, indulging in fun water sport activities, or heading on an excursion to check out the major tourist spots in the vicinity.
These are just a few examples of the different factors that play a major role in having an enjoyable family vacation in the Bahamas. Plan your trip keeping these in mind, and you and your entire family will come back home with memorable moments to cherish from your holiday in the Bahamas.
