Your Family Getaway Awaits

Summer is for vacations, and with summer in full swing; it’s a time when families get together and they do something fun, where memories are made, laughs to be had, inside jokes are formed. So, with school out for the summer, it’s a prime time to  get-away together, and that’s the core important factor with regards to family vacations, that you can all be together on one trip.

What’s great about taking a cruise is all the amenities that come with it, the idea that once you board that ship, you can check your worries on land, because everything from the time you get onboard is amazing, I mean you’re actually sailing to Paradise! Parents don’t have to worry about what can the kids do? Do I need to bring a babysitter? Is there fun stuff for the kids to do?  What can we (parents) do? What can we all do together as a family? We try to alleviate those common worries by giving the best experience onboard, such as:

  1. For the kids: We have the Kids Programs, which are completely supervised, organized by age groups with interactive activities and are complimentary! Here’s a breakdown of The Kids Program:
    1. Kruzers Club: Ages 3-6 – this is for the youngest “cruisers” it has plenty of supervised space for the kids to have fun with activities well suited for this age group.
    2. Club Chill: Ages 7-12 – perfect atmosphere for energetic “cruisers” with interactive games and enough activities to keep them entertained all day long.
    3. Vibe: Ages 13-17 – Plenty of space for these adolescent “cruisers” to make new friends and hangout, with arcade games, board games a much more to keep these teens entertained while you are away.
  2. For the adults we have some amazing entertainment: you can catch a show, test your luck in the Casino, have a romantic dinner or sip on a cocktail poolside.

You can choose between an adults-only pool and a family friendly pool – Activities aren’t just either or. This is just a sample of a few activities that are available onboard, there are so many more options to choose from, that best suit your family.

Once you dock, there are many adventures that await you on Grand Bahama Island, your vacation may start when you check-in at Port of Palm Beach but it continues at the Bahamas. Some cool excursions to check out prior to setting sail (to see which one you and/or the whole family wants to do!) are below:

  1. Inland Blue Hole Snorkel Adventure
