Sometimes hiding Easter eggs in the backyard just doesn’t cut it. So how about giving your kids a treat this year with a hunt aboard, say, a cruise ship?
MSC Cruises is one such cruise line that is geared towards families and Easter festivities. Not only do kids sail for free year-round, but for the full week of Easter, there are special rates for the entire family.
The MSC Divina will set sail from Miami on April 19 for a 7-day cruise, visiting Phillipsburg, St. Maarten; Road Town, Tortola; and Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas. The week is filled with Easter-themed activities, including talent shows, Easter egg hunt, costume parades at the Pantheon Theatre, pool games, line dancing and Easter chef classes.
An Easter Gala dinner will take place, in addition to a special Easter lunch. If that doesn’t convince you, maybe the Formula 1 simulator, 4-D Cinema and Infinity pool will!
Celebration Cruise Line also can get you out on the open sea for Easter this year. Their “Cruise, Stay, Cruise Again to the Bahamas!” package has you sailing on the Bahamas Celebration from Palm Beach Florida to the Bahamas to spend 2, 4 or 6 nights at a gorgeous resort on the beach. Kids can enjoy some on-ship fun with the game room, splash pool and 180-foot water slide. You can either depart on April 15 or 17 to spend Easter where it’s warm and sunny.
If you’re hoping for a more extended vacation, then hop aboard the Oceania Regatta for a 12-night Caribbean cruise with Oceania Cruises. Starting in Miami on April 19, you and your family can soak up the sun in Great Stirrup Cay, Hamilton, St. George, Norfolk, Charleston and Port Canaveral.
