Cruise lines like Disney Cruise Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, Princess Cruises, Royal Caribbean International and Holland America Line Deliver Private Island Style Family Fun!
Owned by the cruise lines, private islands offer cruise passengers a textbook tropical island experience that no other stop on the itinerary could provide: sun, plenty of sand, activities or relaxing options all within the confines of a private island – that means it’s just you, your shipmates, and a whole island on which to play.
Most visits are all-day affairs where you can do as much or as little as you’d like. You’ll have the staples that you’d expect on a tropical island, such as scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, and beach games. There are also plenty of excursions if you’re a bit more adventurous, like deep sea fishing and horseback riding. Some of these options do require a fee, so make sure to ask your travel expert for details. Or you can just set off on your own little adventure and take in the island on a hike either down the beach or follow a laid out nature trail.
Kids will find age-appropriate programs that will keep them occupied throughout the day. Island scavenger hunts, games, sports, whale digs, water sports, children’s playground and swimming areas and aqua parks are some of the many activities supplied by cruise lines. Most of these activities are supervised by cruise line personnel, giving adults time to indulge in their own interests during their visit.
Between relaxing and playing, there’s usually an outdoor barbecue lunch where passengers can bite on a burger while sitting on the beach or sip a fruity drink in a hammock. Lunches are usually accompanied with live music.
