When considering cruise options for families, it’s essential to find the perfect balance between entertainment and quality time spent together. While some cruise ships focus on fast-paced activities and high-energy attractions, others like to emphasise a more back-to-basics approach that allows families to truly enjoy their destinations in each other’s company. Recently, our Marketing Executive, Jenny, had the opportunity to experience the wonders of sailing on Fred Olsen’s Borealis herself. During her voyage, she couldn’t help but notice the delightful sight of families precious moments together.
Here are several reasons why Fred Olsen might just be the ideal choice for your family getaway.
Swap out screen time for shared moments of fun and games.
Among the highlights of Jenny’s journey were the laughter-filled family game sessions, featuring classic board games like Scrabble and Monopoly. Additionally, children had the chance to master the art of Bridge through daily card room lessons. With a variety of entertainment options, from table tennis to darts and even a pickle-board court, there’s no shortage of ways to keep the whole family engaged. From cosy gatherings at the “Morning Light Pub” to poolside excitement, the ship offers numerous spaces designed to cater to families’ shared enjoyment.
Fewer kids onboard mean more dedicated attention for your children.
During the summer months, a select group of staff members are committed to giving parents some well-deserved “me time” while kids partake in the “Little Skippers Club.” This program not only teaches children how to play shuffleboard but also includes activities like pizza making and more, all conveniently accessible throughout the ship. The attentive staff’s patience and expertise make for a stress-free and enjoyable experience for both kids and parents.
