Are We There Yet?

Planning a “family” vacation can be a real “wake-up” call. You’re on the internet looking at “packages” for – let’s say one of those family-friendly theme parks on either coast, and you run across what looks like a good deal! Lodging and park admission is included…..whoopie! Then add in the cost of meals and (of course) transportation and you’ll soon realize it’s no “deal” at all!

Lorraine has a suggestion! Why not consider a cruise? Now – there’s a “deal!” And right now some lines are even “sweetening the pot” with family-friendly offers including “kids sail free!” That’s right! Mom and Dad pay – and kids stay in the same room for free – that’s Nada – Zilch! And don’t bother adding in the cost of meals and snacks – they’re all included! Transportation? Just a leisurely drive to Galveston and you’re ready to board.

The best part is – it’s a vacation for Mom and Dad too. Cruise lines feature their own versions of “day-camp” – kiddos are kept busy with arts/crafts, video games, movies and general fun stuff all while fully supervised by trained counselors – while Mom and Dad enjoy the grown-up amenities of cruising. It’s a “win-win!”

You can enjoy “family time” at the pool – watching movies outdoors on a giant screen – or, depending on the line –try your hand at the rock-climbing wall, surf-simulator – miniature golf - or even ice skating.

The nightly entertainment is “G” rated too – you can feel comfortable taking the family to a variety of offerings from individual featured entertainers to lavish production shows. Some lines even offer “late night” adult entertainment – and clearly advise “no children permitted.” See – there’s something for everyone!

So, get back on the internet and plan that “family friendly” cruise vacation – or better yet, let the good folks at Galveston Cruises find one that best fits your family’s interests and budget.

It’s not too early to book for the holidays – and remember, Summer will be here before you know it! So, this year consider a family vacation without having to hear “are we there yet?” You’ll ALREADY BE THERE!!
