Your daughter's Quinceañera is a special event in life. You want to create something your guests will remember. Whether you are looking for an ultimate blow out celebration with the fanciest suites on the newest ships or you are looking for something more budget friendly, there are plenty of options available.
Why A Cruise Is A Great Option For Celebrating A Quinceañera
Known as a Quince, these parties should rival a wedding. Taking your party on a cruise is one of the biggest ways you could celebrate. It gives you so much more for your money than an event hall at a local hotel. Most cruises include everything for the big day. Everyone can sit back and enjoy the celebration. After all, isn't that how it should be? Here are a few more reasons of why this is such a good option.
• They include several parties for the cost of one.
• The activities for the party are limitless.
• You'll have far less stress.
• The whole family gets a vacation out of the celebration.
There are the gatherings at the time of boarding. You get group activities that take the event from one party to a whole cruise. You have to admit, that's pretty awesome. Think of the excitement when you tell her what you've planned for her big day.
These cruises have zip lines, ice skating, surfing, snorkeling, and so much more. All those things are part of the cruise. You can picture the rest of the story, right? It's going to make her smile for years. The family will love it too. No stress, just relax and enjoy.
Disadvantages Of Celebrating A Quinceañera On A Cruise
You need to know the disadvantages. There are a few. This first is that everyone needs to have their papers together. Things can go wrong when teenagers get together laughing, and forget a paper that's needed at a port. It's a lot of responsibility to take a whole cruise of teenagers. Here are a few other things to consider.
• Kids getting lost
• The cost
Luggage is another big responsibility. Teen girls have a lot of bags that you'll need to keep track of for the Quinceañera cruise. It's manageable, but something to consider. When you have a plan before, you can prepare for things that naturally come up. Think color coding and some serious organization.
Have you ever been sea sick? It is a thing to take a moment to think about. Most people take motion sickness medicine, just in case the sea “whoosies” get a hold of you or your guests. You don't want your daughter to feel queasy on her Quinceañera cruise either.
Kids do wander off and get lost. Imagine hitting the high seas with them. Still, if you have a plan, you can handle it. Think organization, and you'll have it all under control. Considered hiring help for this one special event.
The cost can be a bit much for some people. If you save, find deals though, then all this is just waiting for your daughter's Quinceañera. It's so worth it for her special day. She's remember it forever. So will her friends.
Selecting The Right Cruise Line Will Set The Tone For Your Quince Cruise
Frankly, we think that Princess Cruises is the perfect name for a celebration where your daughter will quite litterally be dressed and celebrated like a princess. However, there are plenty of other options as well. Just as each young lady has her own personality and dreams, each cruise line has nuances that will make a difference in shaping your event.
For instance, cruise lines like Princess and Celebrity offer a more upscale - but still affordable - luxury experience. However, other cruise lines like Carnival and Royal Caribbean will generally have more fun experiences going on until late in the evening. On the other hand, cruise lines like Holland America Line and Cunard are more reserved and not as optimized for younger people ... unless you wanted to do a Titanic-themed celebration in which case a classicly styled Cunard ship might be the perfect backdrop.
