Cruising is the Best Family Vacation!

Cruising is the Best Family Vacation!
by Maddy Cohen

Vacation time is looming on the horizon, and you still haven't found the perfect place to go? Perhaps, when Jupiter aligns with Mars, the Great Idea will hit and you'll frantically make the calls --and pay the price. The family will have its vacation after all.
  • But Mom, will you get to escape to a spa for the afternoon just by taking an elevator?
  • Dad, will you be able to sprawl out on a chaise and not have to make one decision all day, except what flavor margarita to order?
  • Teens, will you disappear for hours and not get any flack when you show up because, after all, you can't have gone far anyway?
  • And kids, will you get to watch new-release movies all evening while your folks are out and not need a baby-sitter?
If your family is like ours, you've been to a few lakes, a few beaches, the mountains, a few big theme parks, a couple of major cities. Maybe you have a time share or rent the same cabin every year. No doubt, you've eaten in every chain in America. But after a while, you get tired of the long car rides, tempermental weather, high admission prices and pit stops.

Most of all, you tire of the stress of wondering, "Will this be a great vacation?" When you consider that the cost of an average Boomer family vacation is about $3,000-$6,000 for a week of fun in the sun, it's understandable that no family wants to feel ripped off or emotionally unfulfilled when they get home and have to face the rat race.

In our case, the questions and complaints ended on our first family cruise. We all got to do exactly what we wanted, sometimes together, sometimes not, but no one felt compromised and no fights ensued. Sounds miraculous, doesn't it?

Although Matt, my 11 year old, began cruising with us at the age of two, we had not tried it as a foursome until our nine year old, Ben, joined us on what is becoming the next classic family vacation, the Alaska cruise.

The scenery alone would have been enough, but now that we have experienced the curative powers of cruising, I don't have to hawk the concept to the tough customers in my house. After all, Matt and Ben have walked on a glacier, panned for gold, steamtrained through the Klondike--well, those are tales we'll tell in good time.

I can assure you that unless you suffer from thalassophobia (yes, it's real; fear of the sea), you won't find a vacation experience that offers more to each member of your family.

To those of you who are nature lovers and tend toward soft adventure, I can tell you that seeing bear and eagles close-up in Alaska, swimming with the sting rays in Grand Cayman, and birding in Costa Rica, all possibilities on cruise ships and merely the tip of the, excuse the mention, iceberg, is a fabulous experience, especially when the family does it together, bonding all the way.

As terrific as whitewater rafting or sleeping under the stars are, an entire vacation without a hot bath or air conditioning might make certain family members just a bit touchy. But with cruising, the kids build a context for their lives, Dad gets the video, and Mom doesn't have to cook or pick out a new restaurant for the evening.

Unlike resort vacations, you're not continually sizing up restaurant menus to figure out if you've gone off the deep end of your food budget, or nixing an activity toward the end of the week because you've spent too much overall.

Yes, we've had fun at Club Med and other all-inclusives, but the evening activities and dining on cruise ships are a lot more grown up. It's really nice at day's end to go on a date with your spouse, knowing the kids are being entertained in kids' or teen programs, or safe asleep in the cabin with night patrol checking up on them.

I can dissect every earthbound vacation we've taken and identify the good, bad and ugly, but why bother? There are at least 10 top reasons why family cruising beats a vacation on terra firma. Try a few of these on for size to see if you can picture yourselves in our shoes:
  • You don't have to be together all of the time, but you won't have to worry where everyone else is.
  • You can be together as much as you want; swim, play bingo, take an excursion, play basketball, see a movie, and you won't have to figure out what else there is to do. There's always something.
  • You can eat your meals together but you don't have to eat the same kind of food.
    Thanks to buffets and grills, the kids can eat on their own if they're old enough to make decisions.
  • Kids have the option of kids' programs instead of dragging around with the old folks.
  • Vice versa.
  • You don't have to worry about the kids getting lost; in a day or two, they'll know their way around better than you.
  • You'll be staying in a beautiful environment without stained carpets or worn bedspreads.
  • You can drink and not worry about driving back.
  • You can see a show, gamble and go to a party all in one night without having to call the baby-sitter.
I must stress that one family's Big Red Boat could be the Titanic for Princess customers. It's very important that, based on your family's needs, ages and lifestyle, you select the right ship for you.

After you've made that decision, you'll find the specifics of planning for, shopping for, packing for, and experiencing cruising family-style here in the family and kids' sections of CruiseMates.

Best of all, our community of cruisers enables you to communicate in advance with other families like yours -- and kids like your kids -- who'll be with you on your cruise. Everyone who's on to CruiseMates can get acquainted beforehand and eliminate those first few days of feeling "new." (You've got to check out Kuki's advice on how to hook up in advance --he's The Man on that subject!) Making friends in advance of departure can enhance the experience so much for everyone in the family.

When it's time for the family to decide, "To cruise, or not to cruise?," don't harbor any reservations. Everyone at CruiseMates promises you'll be on those message boards the day after you get back, converting more innocent families to the ways of the waves.

A Recent Visit to Jamaica, My Island in the Sun

By: Marjorie Randall , Referring Travel Agent and Owner of Marlee Travel

As my flight descended over the blue waters of the Caribbean Sea surrounding Montego Bay, I reflected on the warmth of the ocean and the calming waves on the white sandy beach I used to enjoy and it was as if it were welcoming me. After going through the long lines and the formalities of the local immigration my next stop was baggage claim where I discovered my luggage did not arrive with me. The airport personnel were however reassuring and convinced me that the luggage should be on the next flight that night. I have to say they handled the situation very professionally and I did get the luggage to begin a well needed getaway. I couldn’t wait to get a fresh look at the island I last visited some five years ago and to get to the beach for a swim.

It was surprisingly much warmer than I expected and I was glad I heeded my friends’ warning to dress accordingly. Montego Bay had a few surprises for me. The Airport had undergone much improvement and the landscape of the city had changed so much. There were so many new developments and traffic was everywhere. They drive so fast on the narrow streets; I was expecting an accident to happen anytime. I love the hilly countryside in Montego Bay though, and I was lucky to be staying with my friend, who has a lovely view of Montego Bay. The view is breathtaking and the sea breeze exhilarating. Oh!! How I miss home.

Being away from the island for so long, I now crave the fruits and foods I missed. There were mangos, avocados, naseberry, sweetsap,.ginneps, papayas, jelly coconut and breadfruit all available on the trees just waiting to be picked. Oranges and tangerines were out of season but I sure enjoyed the fresh supply of all the others and I had my daily fill. Talk about hospitality and generosity. If you don’t have fruit tress but your neighbour has, you can call it yours too. You will never go hungry here. Every family I visited ensured that I had a taste of the local foods, ackee and salt fish, served with cooked green bananas and fried bammy. Yummy!!! I am also on a vegetarian diet so fresh fish fried or steamed was always on the menu.

Of course I had to visit the resort areas. There are so many new hotels under construction in Negril and Montego Bay. The Riu Hotels seems to be in every town, Montego Bay, Ohio Rios, Lucea and Negril. I visited the one in Negril and was really very impressed with their service and the relaxed atmosphere. What intrigued me though was how huge these new hotels were. They covered many acres of land and I wondered if tourism was doing that well. I guess they are doing something good, coupled with the beauty of the island which sells itself. For more on Hotel Rui, see our separate post on this wonderful hotel.

Hotel Riu, Negril, Jamaica ~ A Review

By: Marjorie Randall, Referring Travel Agent and Owner of MarLee Travel

The Riu Hotels seems to be in every town, Montego Bay, Ohio Rios, Lucea and Negril. I visited the one in Negril and was really very impressed with their service and the relaxed atmosphere. What intrigued me though was how huge these new hotels were. Hotel Riu is a Spanish Hotel chain. The locals are saying that history is repeating itself as the Spaniards are back – (Christopher Columbus discovered the island in 1494). The Negril hotel lies along the beautiful seven mile white sand beach approximately 48 miles from Montego Bay. It features 420 deluxe guestrooms and is just minutes away from Negril’s shopping area and nightlife. Yes, it’s all-inclusive and some of the staff is required to speak Spanish. They pride themselves for their hospitality and superior service from the moment you check in. First rate food and drinks are available free to guests around the clock and you can dine at any of the tempting buffets and the a la carte specialty restaurants or enjoy a drink at one of their cozy bars. They offer activities and entertainment for the entire family, among them beach volleyball, table tennis snorkeling, billiards sauna and Jacuzzi, gym, live music, night club and a variety of theme shows. You can also enjoy their on-site spa.

The Riu has all the amenities for a restful vacation. I was captivated by the spectacular views from the guestrooms overlooking the turquoise Caribbean and beautifully landscaped grounds. Oh! The sunset views are spectacular. The sunset seems to change colors from a golden hue to fiery red. It is the perfect place for an island getaway and the ideal holiday choice for couples, singles and families.

Rui also offers great wedding packages. They are dedicated to making the wedding and honeymoon experience an unforgettable one and they have the surroundings to do just that.

Think about your last purchase. Did you just go out and spend $50 on a perfume or cosmetic product just because you seen a commercial?

Jewelry Palooza

Jewelry Showcase ~ Featuring Jewelry Designers & Stores Owned by Women


Lena Gott created Milan Jewelry Design in 2004. What started as a line appropriate for office wear, quickly turned into a bridal favorite. Milan Jewelry now designs jewelry exclusively for special events, including weddings and proms.

Brides and bridesmaids are welcome to browse the entire catalog (see link below) or contact Lena directly for suggestions. Here are a few ideas:

For a formal wedding, she recommends the following pieces:
Serena Necklace and Earrings set
Bella Chandelier Necklace and Earrings set
Leilei Bracelet
Grace Necklace and Bracelet set
Larissa Necklace paired with Cecilia Earrings

Grace Necklace & Bracelet

For a more casual wedding, she recommends the following pieces:
Melody Necklace and Earrings set
Marianna Necklace and set
Carlie Necklace and Anklet set

Melody Necklace & Earrings

A few designs work equally as well for formal and casual affairs.
Adrianna Necklace and Earrings (best selling set!)
Hannah bracelet
Dot Necklace and Bracelet set

Adrianna Necklace

The neat thing about Milan Jewelry is that the pieces are meant to be mixed and matched. The entire bridal party can wear a variety of designs and still coordinate well together.

For example, a bride might prefer the Larissa Necklace for herself because it has the most sparkle and substance, then outfit her bridesmaids in the smaller proportioned Bella Chandelier Necklace and Cecilia Earrings. The flower girl could then wear the coordinating Hannah Bracelet or Callie Earrings and the mother of the bride would look lovely in the Dot Necklace and Bracelet set. The entire bridal party would be appropriately adorned with coordinating, yet not exactly matching pieces. Notice that this example doesn’t include exact matching sets for earrings and necklaces, either. This is because although most necklaces have an exactly matching bracelet or earrings, brides like to mix up the combinations.

Some people prefer larger necklaces with smaller earrings, and some people prefer earring and bracelet sets instead of necklaces. For example, many bridesmaids order the Cecilia Earrings to compliment the Bella Chandelier Necklace instead of the matching Bella Chandelier Earrings. Another unique pairings is the Leilei Bracelet with the Adrianna Necklace.

Bella Chandelier Necklace & Cecilia Earrings

If a bride isn’t sure which pieces work well together, Lena would be happy to make recommendations based on the dresses the bride or bridesmaids will be wearing as well as bridal party preferences. Some wedding parties are outfitted in a dress style that allows for mixed and matched tops and bottoms; now the jewelry can be mixed and matched as well!

Customized/personalized jewelry created from fine and sterling silver is my passion. Creating treasured heirlooms with loved ones' names, dates, quotes, quips...anything personal and/or deeply meaningful to an individual or their recipient is why I love what I do - it makes me feel emotionally connected to my pieces. I grew up in an East Indian household and the Indian culture is so vibrant and festive, yet always has an atmosphere of elegance and grace surrounding it. I try and emulate that same emotion in my jewelry.
