This week Out & About With Kids caught up with the Carnival Cruise Line Family Fun Force Panel to get all the tips and advice for a stress free holiday this summer..

  • Allow time. Carting children anywhere always takes time but when you’re loaded with luggage bags and beach gear in tow it’s often a good idea to amend travel time and allow for urgent pleas. Don’t forget also, extra time will likely be needed for toilet breaks, pit stops and tantrums!

  • It’s okay to say no. While there are many fun parties and activities happening during the festive summer season especially while holidaying with others, you don’t have to say yes to everything! It’s important to prioritise family time and some downtime for you and the kids.

  • Rethink your holiday. With time off often few and far between for parents, we know it’s vital that families want to make the most of every minute! A cruise holiday is unique in that the fun and de-stressing for parents starts straight away – airport maniais eliminated. Plus, keeping kids entertained onboard is a dream. Carnival Cruise Line offers a Kids Club that boasts activities for kids of all ages. Best of all, while the kids stay entertained, parents can chill out and reconnect in the child-free Serenity™ Retreat, featuring a pool, bar, chilled live music and sun loungers.

  • Get plenty of rest and sleep. While it’s sometimes hard to avoid, holidays are not always meant for late nights but instead, a chance to re-charge. While the days may be jam-packed, don’t be afraid to keep kids in a similar routine of bed-times to keep them energised and well-rested and to keep yourself sane!
