What's Trending in 2015? - Part 2

It’s 2015, and that means a brand new year and with a new year comes new things.

At CruiseKings, we like to keep on top of all the top trends and in this blog post we will be looking at things that will be big hitters in 2015. We will give you ideas of what to have on your cruising itineraries, and what you should know about the cruising world this year!

Family Cruising

There was a time when cruises were for adults only with little on board to entertain children. Times have changed and cruises are now the perfect place for a family destination.

These floating resorts offer child-friendly food, a vast array of entertainments and plenty of indulgence opportunities for parents.

2015 will see increased demand for family cruising, and Royal Caribbean are top for families with extensive family facilities and new ships Anthem and Quantum of the Seas.

Royal Caribbean International is one of the biggest names in cruising and with that comes a responsibility to cater to everyone, old and young.

Familycruises (1)

You want your kids to be engaged and active whilst you can kick back and relax, which is why they offer their award winning programme - Adventure Ocean.

They will keep the younger ones (ages 3-8) entertained whilst at the same time, educating them by conducting fun experiments and becoming “Certified Jr. Adventure Scientists”.

For the older ones there are teen-only spots for teens and tweens where they can hang out with other cruisers or play games and sports as well as parties where they get to meet people of their own age.

Other great cruise lines that offer great family cruises are Norwegian, with their 'Freestyle' cruising model are geared up for the family market and MSC with their 'FREE CHILD' policy.


A great destination which you should visit this year is Venice, and we wrote a review of it so we won’t go into too much detail, we will just bring up the highlights and why you should visit it and take advantage of our Cruise & Stay offers.

If you are going to visit Venice either by cruise or before you cruise, we suggest that you stay a few nights because there is just far too much to do and see to fit all into one day!

For culture vultures, Venice is packed with famous museums, art galleries and churches (in the churches your shoulders must be covered and there are no photographs are allowed).

St Mark’s Square is more magnificent than words can describe and the views across the canal are truly something to behold.

If your time in Venice is limited I would highly recommend that you do your research, make plans and get a good street map as there is so much to fit into a short break.


Take some time to meander around the shops which are on every corner, leather goods in particular are very reasonable or take a trip to the islands of Murano for glassware and Burano for delicate lace.

No visit to Venice would be complete without a gondola ride.

With all this in mind, why not book your next cruise with CruiseKings. Our Cruise Experts are here to advise you on all of these things, ensuring you are best placed to have the most perfect holiday and choose the right cruise for your needs - Call now on: 0800 197 8050.
