There’s no better way to give that father figure in your life a holiday to remember than by celebrating on a cruise. Good old dad has probably spoiled you since day one, picked you up when you’ve been down and been an inspirational figure in your life. Now it’s time to return the favor – so here’s the ultimate guide to spoiling your dad rotten on a cruise…

Cheers to being a great dad!

Sometimes the simpler gifts are much more appreciated – so why not head down to the onboard pub for a pleasant pint? Cruise ships are actually one of the best places to enjoy the perfect alcoholic beverage – working with brewery companies from all over the world, there’ll be a great selection to choose from.

Indulge in pale ale, worldwide brands or the classic pints you’re used to seeing at home. There’s so many bars onboard too that the choices are never-ending. If a few beers have gone down well, why not finish it off by seeing a live band onboard? Whether your dad is into a bit of jazz, rock or he’s a massive eighties fan – you’ll find just the tunes to get his toes tapping. Just remember to say cheers!

Surprise experiences

If there’s something your dad has always dreamed of doing but he’s never got round to doing it – what better time is there than now? With so many great shore excursions to choose from, those bucket-list adventures will soon be ticked off. Surprise him by booking him up on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure – it could be anything from zip-lining through the jungle, a hiking experience like no other or a maybe a desert safari. Or how about a relaxing day swimming with string rays or a wine and cheese tour? He’ll get the best surprise – and it also means you can the whole family can join in on the fun too!

A fancy four-course feast

If you didn’t already know, cruising is the perfect place for foodie lovers – whether it be trying all kinds of cuisine from around the world or enjoying a first-class Michelin starred dish onboard. The food is simply second to none – and with specialty restaurants onboard too, your taste buds will go crazy. Book you and your dad up for a top-notch meal and be prepared to be whipped up a gastonomic delight by celebrity chefs or gourmet experts. He won’t taste anything quite like it – and with so much choice available, you’ll be feasting on everything from juicy steaks to fresh lobster. Mmm!

A night at the West End

The entertainment onboard a cruise ship is just as good as the real thing – and that’s why we recommend taking your dad to catch a show. He’ll feel like he’s stepping right into the heart of the West End! With many of the performers trained by the official show production teams, rest assured you’ll experience a show nothing short of sensational! Be amazed by your favourite productions such as Mamma Mia, We Will Rock You and Grease. You’ll both be blown away – it’s the perfect way to spend a night at sea. Afterwards, head for the nearest bar and finish your night off with a few drinks!

A treat or two

If you haven’t had chance to grab a gift yet, the onboard shops have everything you need. Spoil him to a designer item or two, a bottle of  his favourite aftershave or something truly unique to remember your cruising experience. Most cruise lines also offer gift packages – a meal, spa treatment, and a bottle of champagne for example. This is more than your standard Father’s Day!
