Ambassador Cruise Line offers a selection of multi-generational cruises every year that children can set sail on with their families – here’s how to pick the best cabin for your group.
Ambassador Cruise Line cabins cater for a range of budgets and requirements, so whether you and the family are looking to save money or splurge on your cruise getaway, there will be a room that suits.
The British brand’s multi-generational cruises are the perfect opportunity to bring everyone from the family together during the school holidays, whether you want to sail the Mediterranean or head to the majestic Norwegian Fjords. However, there’s no denying choosing the right cabin could make or break the holiday.
Ambassador family cabins
Let’s have a look at the Ambassador cabin options available on these family cruises to ensure you nail the decision.
Want to bunk in en famille but without breaking the bank? Ambassador offers third and fourth berth cabins that are ideal for when the kids are in tow.
A selection of Ambassador cabins have either pullman or foldaway third or fourth berths; the former are moved down from the ceiling by a cabin steward at nighttime and are placed back into the ceiling during the day so you and the little ones can still have plenty of room to relax, play and get dressed for the adventures ahead.
Alternatively, foldaway beds are permanently attached to Ambassador cabin walls and are lowered when required.
Ambassador interconnecting cabins
If you’ve got older children or you’re travelling with grandpa, grandma et al on your family cruise, an interconnecting cabin could be the solution to grant the gang a bit more space.
There are a range of configurations available, such as Premium Twin Balcony Cabins linking to Premium Single Ocean View Cabins. Check out the Ambassador website for further details or take a peek at the Ambience deck plan.
Ambassador family suites
However, for more luxury quarters, a suite might be best. The line’s flagship Ambience – on which the 2023 Ambassador family cruises take place – boasts 14 spacious De-Luxe suites.
These rooms have twin beds which can be converted to a double bed and the majority have a sofa bed that can fit a third and/or fourth passenger, perfect for tucking the kids up into (and giving mum and dad a bit more privacy).
Ambassador suites feature standard cabin facilities as well as en-suite facilities with a bath and separate shower, dressing area and a second flat-screen television (useful if the young’uns are bored stiff by your favourite news channels).
In addition, staying in a De Luxe Suite grants you a separate check-in waiting area, an espresso coffee machine and easy departure with a private disembarkation waiting area. How’s about that for the suite life?
Another Ambassador suite option for family cruises is a Superior Junior Suite, of which there are 36 on Ambience. These similarly have twin beds that can mostly be transformed into a double bed and also have a double sofa/rollaway bed for a third and/or fourth traveller.
Ambassador single cabins
If you’ve got a family member who wants a room to themselves (perhaps they want a break from the little ones?) then Ambassador has several cabins dedicated to single occupancy.
These solo cabins range from Superior Inside Single to Super Plus Balcony Single depending on how much you want to spend on accommodation.
