Family cruises don’t need to cost the earth as Ambassador Cruise Line is proving with its multi-generational summer cruises where kids sail from just £1pp! So how can kids be kept busy onboard?
Family cruises 2023 are still available to book with Ambassador for those looking to sail to the Mediterranean on an unforgettable adventure this summer.
Ambassador Cruise Line may normally be an adults-only line, but during the school holidays, the no-fly brand welcomes children on board thanks to an array of summer cruises so everyone in the gang can travel together, from nans to nippers.
It’s not just the diminutive prices that will tempt parents with little ones, but also the plethora of super fun ways your tiny travellers can be entertained during their time on the high seas.
Ambassador family cruises activities
This summer discover a multi-generational cruise Summer Balearics Getaway with Ambassador – departing from the UK on August 12.
On this cruise for families, the brand is ensuring the boat is well and truly pushed out for kids whether they’re after workshops, live performances, or gameshows.
Why are pirates called pirates? Because they arrrrr! That’s right, in true nautical style, Ambassador is giving kids the chance to dig out their inner cutlass-swinging, scull-and-crossbones-flag-wielding scallywag with a day of pirate-themed crafts and a special pirate dinner!
Gather yer hearties around and get stuck into a range of crafting activities with a pirate twist during the day and in the evening, don your finest tricorn and eyepatch at a fancy dress dinner fit for a pirate king.
Of course, real pirates historically ate dry biscuits, salted beef and beans but we have a feeling the feast on an Ambassador family cruise will be a lot more nutritious and tasty. (And yes, parents can sample the ship’s rum if they wish….).
If children get really into their acting roles, be sure to sign them up for the family drama classes – characters other than pirate ruffians are available.
For thespian inspiration (or should you prefer watching to participating) on the multi-gen Balearics Getaway, make sure to check out the Ambassador Theatre Company’s vignettes that take place around the ship. These mini-plays and shows are packed with drama – and are ideal for shorter attention spans!
Perhaps dancing is more your bag? Ambassador delivers the swag – Just Dance sessions and TikTok dances will be put on for younger cruisers as Ambassador show team dancers lead guided dance classes. We have a feeling there might be an awful lot of dad dancing…
Don’t want to boogie with the oldies? Children can put their moves into action at the kids’ disco too.
However, if you’re more into singing than sashaying, you won’t be left without on a multi-generational sailing with Ambassador.
Travellers old and young can test out their vocal cords at family karaoke while kids can escape (embarrassing) parents at the kids’ choir class.
That’s still not all. The grey matter can be tested at family trivia events and Mini Me gameshows while cruisers who fancy a challenge can take on family scavenger hunts and selfie hunts! Losers may be asked to walk the plank…
