Cruise from Brisbane in 2020


Cruise from Brisbane in 2020 thanks to KiteFest sponsor Carnival Cruise Line

Everyday stresses can make families desperate for a holiday or totally dread the thought of one. But a cruising holiday, even a short one, is a great way to rediscover the fun in family life. And there’s one less stress now for Brisbane families who are looking to book a cruise – no need to fly to Sydney! Redcliffe KiteFest’s Fireworks sponsor Carnival Cruise Line is now taking bookings for their 2020 cruises departing from Brisbane.

The team from Carnival Cruise Line have given their five ways that cruising with Carnival can bring your family closer together:

1.The choice is yours

Happy kids mean happy holidays after all. There are plenty of activities to do on board, from waterparks to mini golf, trivia and more! And if the adults want some time ashore, the free kids club remains open if some in the family want to stay and play onboard. Carnival also offers unique teens-only activities and parties. You’ll also find a variety of activities to match your kids’ interests, whatever their age.

2.The family that eats together

If your kitchen is like a 24-hour diner where everyone eats at different times, or your family tends to disengage in front of the TV during meal times, rediscover the joys of eating together. And the food! There’s something for the whole family: spicy, sushi, burgers, a la carte dining – you name it. And no cleaning up means time for a swim together, a walk around the deck, a round of mini golf or some sing-a-long fun in the Piano Bar.

3.Bring the whole tribe

Invite the grandparents along for precious time with the kids, and create happy memories of everyone enjoying family life. There’s plenty of space, plenty to do and, should you need it, places to retreat to. Book a family stateroom or suite – Carnival offers a range of cabins from twin share to triple and quad. Or try interconnected rooms so everyone’s got their own little slice of holiday heaven and time together is easily achieved.

4.Get involved

Their family ships feature amazing entertainment for all ages, from the incredible Green Thunder, the steepest and fastest waterslide at sea (on Carnival Spirit and Carnival Legend) – for the daredevil in you. Enjoy a Broadway-style show, live family comedy, Mexican and 80s themed nights or some karaoke together.

5.See New Places

Whether accompanying your kids ashore at an exotic port in the South Pacific, experiencing new culture or taking them to a dazzling Broadway-style show onboard, expanding their horizons with travel is one of the greatest gifts a parent can give a child. This unique way of reconnecting will leave you with lasting memories, great conversation starters, and stories to tell for years to come.
