What is there to do during Sea Days?
The idea of embarking on a cruise is fantastic. It allows you and your family to experience multiple different cities in a short amount of time with minimal effort. Whether cruising through the Mediterranean, Caribbean, Norwegian Fjords or Northern Europe – there is no better way to see the world than on a cruise.
Despite this, many people are put off by the prospect of spending endless days at sea between destinations. Combine this sense of nervousness with the prospect of having to keep the whole family entertained and you could have a real mission on your hands. This needn’t be the case, however, as there is always something to do whilst on board. Pullmantur takes a closer look at the amenities and activities that will keep you entertained during your cruise.
Ensuring your children don’t get bored during sea days is paramount. Therefore, parents will be glad to know there are a number of children’s clubs to suit all ages. Young children aged between 3-6 have plenty to do in Guppy Club ‘Minis’, whilst older children, aged 7-11 will feel at home in the Guppy Club ‘Guppys’. Additionally, there is also a Teens’ Club, a specially designed programme for young adults aged between 12-17. Each club is available free of charge and supervised by professionals – so you can rest assured, safe in the knowledge that your children are having the time of their lives.
With the children catered for, why not climb to the top deck and soak up the sunshine? Have a swim in one of the pools, or relax in the Jacuzzis before enjoying a drink or two at one of the bars. All drinks are included in the price you pay*, from the fresh morning coffee to the ice cold beers. There are three drinks packages available: All Inclusive Guppy (Ideal for kids and includes water, sodas and juices); All Inclusive Plus (includes alcoholic drinks such as beers, liqueurs, and cocktails); and All Inclusive Premium (includes all the above but with more branded items and access to a premium gin bar).
If you fancy something a little more special whilst on board, there are many options that will help you to indulge yourself. The Spa del Mar can provide a range of refreshing treatments such as an ocean wrap massage, full-body exfoliation, Frangipani scalp massage, manicure, pedicure and so much more. After a trip to the spa, why not venture into the duty free shops, where you can purchase a wide range of designer products at attractive prices. In the evening, the casino is the perfect place to try and win a small fortune. Games such as blackjack, poker and roulette are all available in the casino, as well as the opportunity to bet on live sports events.
For those looking to spend some time together in the evening after a full day of individual activities, there is plenty to do. Spectacular shows such as Rock Never Dies and Histoire d’amour are performed in the on board theatre, whilst families looking for a quieter night in can take advantage of Films and TV Channels available in each cabin. There are many lounges and bars, some of which will feature live musicians, and for those looking to party the night away – the on board nightclub is the perfect venue. Other on board amenities include a fitness centre, open-air jogging track, table tennis court, basketball court, climbing wall, buffet bars and a library.
Wherever you decide to travel, you can rest assured that, during those long sea days, you will never get bored on your Pullmantur ship. Our all-inclusive cruises cover your meals, drinks, gratuities and taxes. All that is left to do is sit back and relax!
