Many people don’t think that they can travel with family, they dread the thought of looking after kids as they struggle to sight see and get themselves around, and as a result many people who end up wanting to travel end up putting it off until after their children have grown.
We are here to tell you that waiting for the kids to grow up before enjoying your travel dreams is not necessary!
For those travelling with Kids under 5, or just wanting a relaxing break the easiest option for your travels with family is to do a Cruise or Resort Stay Holidays where the kids can be looked after by the Kids Club while you chill, indulging in the occasional day tour or adventure.
With companies like Sunlover Holidays, NCL Cruises, Qantas Holidays and Princess Cruises there are a world of options out there where you can get away, relax and leave the majority of looking after the kids to the professionals, while you kick back and relax. Though you should recall that most kids clubs need children to be at least 3 years of age.
For those with kids over 5 that is still an option, but there is a world of travelling opportunities out there that are specifically built for families, and will still allow you to get out and see your dream destination – like Peru or Kenya or Vietnam – and bring the kids along on what would be a fantastic journey.
Some operators like Trafalgar, Peregrine and Intrepid have family specific tours. Other companies like G-Adventures, the Africa Safari Co and Adventureworld can prepare tailor made itineraries for you and the family to have a fantastic holiday away that will keep you all enthralled.
Many options can be prepared to be fully escorted – so you have someone else (usually a guide) to help with the kids ! Or you can mix a self drive adventure with some escorted arrangements.
So if you have ever thought of travelling with Children, now is your best opportunity to look into it as we have twenty of our industry experts gathered for one night – most of whom can look after trips with families, be they small children, or teens. So for all the family travel information you want we suggest that you join us for ..
My Travel Expo.
4pm til 7pm, 22 September 2016,
@ Shoalhaven Ex-Servicemans Club Worrigree.
Call (02) 4421 5577 for more information
One of the Cruise Lines that many people seem to know the name of for Cruises in and around Australia, as well as for the Inside passage is Princess Cruises – though their sailings cover more than those areas! We are excited to announce that Princess Cruises will be one of the Exhibitors that will be at My Travel Expo on the 17th March 2016 at Worrigee Ex-Servicemans Sports Club from 5pm.
Princess Cruises offer a fantastic array of voyages from Australia to New Zealand, the Pacific Islands, around Australia up into South East Asia and beyond. They have regular cruises operating in Alaska and Canada journeying up the Inside passage, they have ships stationed in the Caribbean, the Mediterranean and throughout the world at any given moment. Princess Cruises also annually offer the traveller an opportunity to Cruise The World – leaving and departing from Sydney on a voyage of over a hundred days.
While Princess Cruises run smaller ships than the mega-liners that are starting to come to Australia, the level of indulgence, facilities and on-board activities rival them making room for a more intimate and less crowded cruising option, and while children are welcomed aboard and have a fantastic kids club available, Princess do limit the number of children on each sailing making it the perfect cruise for the elderly couple, young honeymooners or those seeking a break away from their families. Princess Cruises combines casual elegance with day to day comfort in an appealing blend that will have you appreciating the small things that make your cruise more enjoyable.
Which in a way is what Princess Cruises is all about, a great voyage, fantastic sights and an experience to remember. Whether it is dining on a recipe developed by their celebrity chef Curtis Stone, or relaxing to a hot rock massage in their Spa Facilities, or simply enjoying the pool-deck and a cool drink, with Princess the Voyage is as important as the destination.
Princess Cruises also regularly work in tandem with tour suppliers like APT, Scenic and AAT Kings so that you can combine a Princess Cruise with incredible land tours. Combining Top end and Queensland Cruises with the Red Centre and Ghan Tour Programmes, or combining Inside Passage Cruises with Rocky Mountaineer Rail Journeys.
Princess Cruises are an incredible way to discover destinations, or voyage between them in style, comfort and good company!
So if an experience with Princess Cruises sounds like something to consider then why not come and see the Expert from Princess Cruises at at My Cruise Expo, on the 17th March 2017 at Worrigee Ex-Serviceman’s Sports Club from 5pm till 8pm!
If you have ever wanted to get away on a cruise then this is the day and age to do so, with more cruise lines coming and going from Sydney and other Australian Ports than any time in the past. With cruises to suit all manner of people Princess stands out as a cruise line for a more discerning market.
Up until the 29th February 2015 there is a fantastic sale aboard a select number of Princess Cruise voyages and Sailing that will (dependent on the trips duration, destination and category) give up additional inclusions beyond the normal for a Princess sailing including up to $600 on board credit, up to $500 of Shore Excursion Credit, and Specialty Dining Credit for two.
That is a fantastic amount of savings with Princess Cruises and well worth the investment of booking aboard their cruises which tend to to be aboard an incredible arrange of mid-size cruise ships that have something aboard for almost everyone!
So why not book aboard a Princess Cruise today and explore the world with added Extras!
If a cruise with Princess Cruises though does not appeal there are a slew of other specials available that are currently in process with lines like P&O, , Norwegian Cruise Lines, Oceania Cruises, Royal Caribbean , Carnival and more.
