Travelling with kids can be a daunting task. Screaming babies and tantrum-prone toddlers can be enough to make parents want to shy away from taking a trip at all. It’s just a bit too stressful. But is it? Does it really need to be such a nightmare? Absolutely not!
When you travel by ferry forget the endless worries you might consider ahead of your trip – like strapping your kids into a seat for hours on end or not being able to carry their favourite toys due to luggage restrictions.
The excitement starts as soon as you step on board. There is nothing quite like the freedom of running on the deck for the first time. The fresh air and the long stretches to run are perfect for tiring out kids with endless energy.
Plus the chance to spot wildlife – birds or sometimes even dolphins or whales, and what about the excitement of seeing land coming into view and docking in a new port.
