Royal Caribbean attracts children families with playful island in the Bahamas
The interest in traveling on cruises is great among families with children. As many as 50 percent are interested in going on a cruise with their children or young people, Royal Caribbean's survey shows 12 000 travelers. Every fifth passenger on Royal Caribbean's cruises last year was under 15 years.
As part of making a cruise even more attractive as a family vacation, presents Royal Caribbean Cruises now cruises to their upgraded private island CocoCay in the Bahamas.
Wide range for families with Royal Caribbean
Unique experiences and exciting destinations are what especially attracts. It shows a survey among just over 12 000 travelers that Royal Caribbean Cruises let together with the travel company Ving.
- Our survey shows that 50% of families with children are interested in going on a cruise and of these, 17% are very interested, says Christian Træland, marketing manager at Royal Caribbean Cruises in the Nordic countries.
The secret of the great interest, says Christian Træland, lies in the wide range available on a cruise and that most things are included in the price:
- On cruises there is something for everyone. Children and adolescents can go to 3D cinema or test their knowledge in our science laboratories, challenge themselves to surf simulators, test climbing walls, water slides and much more. At the same time, the adults can relax on the sun deck, work out or go to the casino.
Island of Cococay, as a whole entertainment world
As part of making cruises even more attractive for family vacations, Royal Caribbean is opening its own eco-certified vacation island, CocoCay, in late May.
- CocoCay has a totally incomparable environment and there are good opportunities for the whole family to enjoy both relaxation and fast-paced activities, says Christian Træland.
On the isolated island of CocoCay, which belongs to the island group of the Bahamas, Royal Caribbean has built up a whole vacation world for its cruise guests. There is a water park with cable car, water slides and plenty of water activities, a beach club, restaurants and bars.
The area also has several long beaches for those looking for privacy. The idea is that Royal Caribbean's ships will make shorelines on their own island during their cruises in the Caribbean, Cuba, Bahamas and Bermuda.
During the winter season, Royal Caribbean cruises to various destinations in the Caribbean, Bahamas and Bermuda. During the summer season, cruises to the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, Alaska or Dubai are also arranged.
This is most appreciated by families with children on a cruise:
- New experiences every day 68%
- Interesting Destinations 68%
- Good food and good service 59%
- All Inclusive 46%
