FAMILY TOUR CHALLENGE SHORE EXCURSIONS: WHY SOUTHERN CALIFORNIAN FAMILIES WILL LOVE THEM

AUGUST 12, 2014

Wondering how to entertain the whole family while in port during a cruise? Celebrity Cruises has you covered with our new Family Tour Challenges, which incorporate in sightseeing in select ports with friendly competition and activities. Your family will have the chance to compete against other families in activities like treasure hunts or learn new skills such as sailing. Southern California families will especially love these dynamic new shore excursions. Here’s why:

Social Excursions: The Family Tour Challenges incorporate in a group activity that involves the whole family and gets you talking, laughing, and having fun together. Southern Californians are social creatures and you’ll love the interactive dynamic of these shore excursions.

Active Events: With the beach to the west and mountains to the east, there are a plethora of ways to stay active in Southern California and the Family Tour Challenge Shore Excursions also offer ways to stay active. Family Tour Challenges include a Flamenco dance-off in Barcelona, Spain; a treasure hunt through Palma, Spain; gondoliering in Venice, Italy; Douro River sailing in Porto, Portugal; Bermuda Gold Cup sailing; races at Panathenaic Stadium in Athens, Greece; and a rainforest treasure hunt in Ketchikan, Alaska.

Shorter Tour Time: In Southern California, we like to go at our own pace. The Family Tour Challenges are often shorter in duration than other shore excursions, meaning you get a fun and educational way to see a destination, but then still have time to see the port of call in your own way on your own time.

Other benefits of doing a Family Challenge Shore Excursion (or any shore excursion through Celebrity Cruises)? You get to be first off the ship, which means more time in port for your family; there’s no cancellation penalty so you can easily change your plans, always a plus when accommodating multiple family members; and you are guaranteed to be back to the ship before it departs for the next port – or your transportation costs will be covered.
