Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — Costa Cruises is making it easier for families to travel on a budget with its Kids Sail Free promotion, valid on select voyages this fall and winter.
With this promotion, kids sail free when travelling together as a family this fall and winter on select cruises into 2018. The cabin also receives an onboard credit up to US$200 per cabin, which can be used towards gift shop purchases, shore excursions, alternative dining and more.
For example, a family of four can enjoy a Costa Diadema cruise from Barcelona for $998, plus port charges and gratuities. For Costa Favolosa’s Nov. 2 departure from Barcelona, rates start at $447 per person for the first and second person in the cabin, with kids cruising free as the third and fourth guests.
Costa offers a wide range of family-friendly amenities and services to ensure the most exciting vacation experiences for families. Its Squok Club gives junior cruisers an endless selection of activities, including sport competitions, pool parties, face painting, dance lessons, themed dinners and the Princess and Captain for a Day programs.
For the youngest passengers, the beloved character Peppa Pig makes every moment onboard fun. Many of the line’s Squok Clubs have been redecorated with Peppa images, while the outdoor swimming pool area reserved for children has been completely redesigned based on a Peppa pirate theme.
Meanwhile, the Teen Junior Club for ages 12-15 and Teen Club for ages 15-17 features activities like music and dance courses, karaoke, talent shows, painting t-shirts, evening pool parties and sports tournaments.
