Cruise activitiesWhat is there to do on board a cruise?

Whether it is a 3 star, 4 star or a luxury 5 star cruise you’re boarding, the perks included are almost endless, with something in store for young, old and everyone in between. Kids are definitely spoilt for choice on ships cruising the South Pacific, but it is important to take the ages into consideration before you book as some cruise liners have more specific activities for teens compared to toddlers.

The recreational activities on the Carnival Cruise Line are inclined towards teens, but there are a handful of perks for kids under the age of 9 as well. The expansive outdoor pool, large water park, 10 whirlpools and 22 foot screen for movies is most inviting on Carnival, followed by a host of recreational fun divided into categories depending on their age.
The Toddlers Group caters to kids between 2 and 5 years of age, and includes activities such as coloring and drawing, singing and artworks. The junior category consists of kids of ages between 6 and 8 and includes activities such as scavenger hunts and talent shows. Pre-teens and teens are welcome to indulge in a number of water based activities, rock wall climbing and even ice skating on some cruises.

Anytime is good to take a break from the bustle of everyday life, and departing Sydney on a cruise line allows you to do just that! Most people returning from a cruise claim that they achieved a general sense of overall wellbeing and one of the most relaxing ways to vacation. For many passengers, sailing through clear waters and visiting exotic sites is an absolute thrill complimented with endless hours of pampering. Most cruise ships that depart from Sydney including Cunard, Princess Cruises, P & O and the Holland America Line are appointed with state of the art spa facilities.

Cruise ships have a number of different approaches for spas, with the two most common being onboard and land based spa resorts. Onsite spas are undoubtedly outstanding with creative spa treatments inspired by Eastern Traditions, high-tech cardio machines and fitness centres. These spas based cruises are best for travelers seeking an all inclusive vacation as these facilities are usually including in the package. To add to this are the host of swimming pools, musical events and tantalizing dining options.

Holidaying is all about relaxation, but as there are a number of different forms such as casinos, shore excursions and deck massages, researching the ones you specifically desire prior to booking a cruise is key to a memorable experience.

Action is an unlimited component on many cruise lines starting with Wii consoles streamed through large screens, special game kiosks for children, cooking classes and the Royal Caribbean’s full size boxing ring to name a few. That’s not all; there’s also surf and theme parks, innovative yoga and cardio facilities and skating rinks to explore. Dining is probably one of the best all inclusive perks of cruises, and although it is free in most instances, there are a few packages that do require you to pay for snacks and beverages. Whatever the case maybe, the dining options on a ship include succulent world class dishes that are prepared by renowned chefs from different parts of the globe.
