Traditional family vacations don't allow for any adult only time - cruising is the ultimate family vacation because of the CHILDCARE (oh and because of the shows, ambiance, ports of call and amazing food of course)
I'm a mom who doesn't leave her kids with anyone I don't know well, so I was afraid that I wouldn't want to leave my kids in the Oceaneers club on our Disney cruise. I'm so glad to tell you that the environment, security checks and security measures at the Oceaneers club left me with NO worry about leaving our kids in their very capable hands.
My husband and I took a mini second honeymoon when we left our kids on the ship and explored Jamaica by ourselves. It was AMAZING. Once back onboard we relaxed in the adult only area, took a nap and then picked the kids up for dinner. The kids were so in love with the Oceaneers club that we felt no guilt enjoying some much needed husband-wife time.
We also were able to spend ever coveted one-on-one time with each of our kids enjoying the many activities onboard. I can't say enough about how this was the most amazing family vacation we've ever been on.
I was nervous because I get VERY motion sick. I got a prescription for the patch and tested the patch for 3 days before I booked our cruise. Other than making me very thirsty I felt fine. Once onboard I didn't feel motion sick during our entire 7 days.
Disney cruises (although the best IMO) aren't the only amazing options for families. Each of the other cruise lines have their own version of well thought out, safety-minded fun childcare.
We will discuss where you want to go, your budget and what kind of experience your family is interested in and begin the vetting process. We'll also look at current deals and promos to find the best value for your family.
Cruising has it's own vocabulary - so here I'll get you started with some basics.
