According to Travel Mole, the popularity of family cruising is on the rise.
One million children are cruising each year, according to the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), which represents most of US cruise ships. Such numbers have propted cruise lines to respond with more options geared toward families.
“Cruising has been one of the travel industry’s biggest success stories. In the US these types of holidays have been genuinely multi-generational.” said Trevor Davis of The Co-operative Travel.
“The major cruise operators have courted parents looking for a stress-free break by fitting ships with increasingly bigger and better attractions for families, as well as improving their kids clubs and entertainment.
“The cruise lifestyle is also appealing to families, giving them the flexibility to eat what and when they want and allowing older children more freedom to roam and try out new thrills such as on-board surfing and climbing walls.”
