Family Mediterranean Cruises

Posted August 13th, 2013

For entertainment, activities, kids club and cultural experiences our cruise consultant finds much to recommend in Mediterranean cruises

When my family decided to go to Europe for the first time we chose to go on a Mediterranean cruise; it was a decision we didn't regret. Cruising can be as relaxing or active as you want.

Our reason for going to Europe was to see amazing places, experience different cultures and try amazing food. There are a lot of options when it comes to shore excursions to cater for different tastes and budgets.

My favourite places were Rome and Istanbul. There’s a bit of history everywhere you look, the food is fantastic and they are a heaven for shopaholics. Make sure you allow plenty of time to see the Grand Bazaar and that you have a good sense of direction or a map!

For adults the entertainment options aboard your cruise ship are endless. You may want to lie by the pool all day and work on your tan or burn off some of the food at the gym, exercise or dance classes. Or perhaps bingo or cooking classes are more your style.

You can go to a cocktail party on formal nights, followed by a show or enjoy a concert under the stars. You can dance the night away or try your luck at the casino. The entertainment team have something new every day and night to make sure everyone is enjoying themselves. Meanwhile, the children will be well looked after in the kids’ club.

The food onboard was fantastic. You can choose between buffet or à la carte for breakfast and lunch, while dinner is a seven course extravaganza. The menu changes depending on the region you are visiting that day. If that is not enough for your taste buds why not try the midnight buffets. Who can resist a midnight chocolate buffet?
