Top reasons to embark on family cruise to Croatia in 2021
In spite of the pandemic, Croatia has emerged as one of the least affected countries in the whole of Europe.T herefore, going on a cruise vacation to Croatia, with a family with small kids will be quite different from the usual sailing trip consisting of just seniors. This nice little guide will explain to you why you must take the little ones on a Croatian sailing trip in 2021.
Croatia is safe
In these difficult times, Croatia has been designated in the 'Safe Travels' global safety protocol, as such entry is easier than expected. Moreover, the cruise ships hold no more than 40 guests, unlike the large international cruise ships. Croatian cruise ships never venture out of the Croatian waters and adopt extra safety and cleaning measures in all public areas. No matter where you are cruising, you will never be more than an hour away from the nearest medical facility.
Croatia is special
After all we have been through, families need something special and Croatia is the most special cruise destination ever visited.The visually stunning coastline, picture-perfect stone towns, national parks and over a thousand islands to hop in and out to make for the ultimate family holiday. Moreover, the cruise is not limited to just gimmicky features on the ship, instead kids are encouraged to focus on the destinations for an educational experience.
Cruises are short
While parents have the luxury of reading a book and enjoying a beer between cruising destinations, the children need to be kept an eye unless they mess up with your well thought plans.This is the reason the trip is short and flexible. It includes a combination of nice towns, beautiful islands where children can safely play. Once the vessel is anchored in a quiet bay, the choices for the kids are endless as they can swim, snorkel or play on the beach. The vessel usually has a canoe, which is great fun for the small kids.
The itineraries are especially designed to keep the children occupied and happy. To see that they are super active during the day, there should be plenty of water sports facilities on board. The route should include stopovers on pebbled beaches where they can stretch their legs and play. Include visits to kid-friendly places like visiting the aquarium on Hvar or riding donkeys in Korcula island. Shore trips are planned with parents, rather than staying on the ship and watching TV.
Cruise ships are family oriented
When it comes to traveling with children, safety is of top priority. You can easily choose from a variety of vessels which have a safety net, wide beam and a comfortable salon or entertainment area for kids when the captain is steering the ship from one location to the other. While the elders can chill on the deck, you will be ensured that your children are having a ball in the safe environs of the salon.
Ideal for teenagers
In case you are traveling with children who are slightly older, you can create an itinerary which allows them to get off the ship, from time to time, to enjoy themselves on shore. This also includes lots of places to swim, snorkel and take part in water based activities, in order to avoid boredom. A salon with TV, WiFi connection, good music system and iPod plug ins are some of the equipment available on board.
Full board accommodation
For families with small kids, there are options to have all the meals on board everyday. The chefs ensure that the meals are modified for the kids with a variety of choices. Furthermore, the crews are child-friendly and have the patience required to deal with children.
