How Can I Make the Most of Cruising With My Grandkids?

I am cruising with my grandkids and want to make the experience extra magical.  What kinds of things does the Disney Cruise Line offer for us?

Multigenerational trips are becoming more and more common, and the Disney Cruise Line provides the perfect setting for children, parents and grandparents to create life-long memories.  The Disney Cruise Line encourages you to take advantage of the precious one-on-one time you have with your grandkids and join them for some quality play time!  The Oceaneer’s Club is a great place to start, with amazingly themed rooms to spark everyone’s imagination.  You can also join them poolside for some fun in the sun.  There are endless ways to “play” aboard the Disney Cruise Line ships!!

When you are on a Disney Cruise, you will feel like you have been whisked away to a far-away, royal land.  Spend time with your grandkids and go with them to visit their favorite princesses gathered in the massive atrium, and even join them for photos with Elsa and Anna during exclusive Frozen meet-and-greets.  These photos will provide memories for years to come and can be an amazing souvenir.  If you are sailing on the Disney Fantasy, the Royal Court Royal Tea is a nice way to indulge in some sweet and savory treats with your little prince or princess.

And, before you go to tea, don’t forget…little ones love transforming into their favorite characters- whether they are royal princesses or swashbuckling pirates.  Treat them to an appointment at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, where they can immerse themselves into a fairytale world.  And, on Pirate Night, the entire family (yes, that means you too!!) can be made over to take full advantage of the festivities that lie ahead for the evening.

There are even ways to create memories off the ship.  Port Adventures provide endless opportunities for families to learn more about local culture and explore new lands.  Before you set sail, have a family meeting and decide what sounds most fun for all of you to do together.  I can assure you that the smiles and looks in their eyes will be ones that you will never forget!

Finally, a special souvenir is a wonderful way to capture all of the wonderful memories of the trip that the kids can look at and remember all the fun they had while on this memorable vacation.  Stores onboard and at Castaway Cay offer many mementos and the two of you can choose something that you will both remember the trip by.  Don’t forget to pick something up for yourself too, while you are at it!  Because you deserve to remember all the magic as well!

If you would like some information on planning a cruise with your children or grandchildren, I would love to help!  Family cruising is one of my specialties and I would be more than happy to help find the perfect itinerary to help create lasting memories for you and your loved ones.  Email me at tricia@worldofmagictravel.com for more information and be sure to follow me on Facebook to keep up with the latest Disney news, updates and promotions!
