So you’ve finally got around to planning that family reunion everyone has been talking about for years. Now the biggest challenge is finding something that will appeal to every generation, from the littlest kids to Great Uncle Joe. That’s where cruise holidays come in.

Here are seven great reasons to lock in a family reunion cruise:


Something for everyone

Cruise ships today offer something for everyone. You only need to look at the ships of Carnival Cruises, Princess Cruises, P&O Cruises and Royal Caribbean to see that the whole family will be entertained. Even the teenagers will forget to scowl when they spot the video arcades, rock climbing wall and pools.


Great value for money

Not only do family reunion cruises provide great value for money, but they are also often cheaper than reunions on land. The all-inclusive price you pay for a cruise typically includes your family’s accommodation, meals, 24-hour room service, entertainment, most onboard activities, kids club and, of course, travel between destinations. What more could you want?


Less planning required

When it comes to big group holidays, planning can be an absolute nightmare. Transportation, accommodation, dinner reservations, excursions – it’s a full-time job getting everything lined up. But with family reunion cruises, practically everything is taken care of for you. And those things that aren’t, like shore excursions, are incredibly easy to organise.


Kids’ Programs

No need to worry about the kids being bored. Family cruises offer a seemingly endless list of activities for younger cruisers. Most cruise ships offer a complimentary kids’ club where your little ones can enjoy fun and games under supervision. And teens won’t be left out – many ships offer an exclusive teen-only club with age-appropriate activities, like mocktail making, karaoke, video game tournaments, teen club nights and more.


Less stress along the way

The wonderful thing about a family reunion cruise is that everyone gets to relax. Washing and cleaning are taken care of. Dinner is made. Entertainment can be found all times of the day and night. So there’s more time to kick back and relax.


Be together and apart

Even with a family reunion, there comes a time when you want some space away from your loved ones. And cruise ships provide plenty of opportunities to enjoy some “me” time. While the youngsters are entertained in the kids’ club and grandpa is learning to ballroom dance, why not book yourself in for a spa treatment or Yoga class? Then everyone can come together over dinner and a show later.


Unforgettable family time

The whole point of a family reunion is to get everyone together for some quality time. And there’s no doubt that family reunion cruises tick that box. Whether onboard or onshore, you’re guaranteed to make magical memories together that everyone will cherish for years to come.
