5 Fun Family Games to Play on a Cruise
Scavenger hunts are fun for family members of any age. Do you have younger tykes? Try finding things that start with each letter of the alphabet. Cruising around a holiday? You’ll find plenty of items to fit a holiday theme. Take pictures of the items you find, or if allowed, bring them back to your room.
Decorate Your Cabin Door Contest
Are you traveling with a large group? Hold a contest to see who can come up with the best door decorations. Like a scavenger hunt, any theme will work with door decorations. Plan ahead to bring your decorations with you, like this Fireworks Cruise Ship Porthole, or hit the gift shop to buy items once you’re on board. Don’t forget to have a prize for the winner!

Find Someone Who… (BINGO)
This game is popular with corporations and classrooms, but it’s just as fun on a cruise ship. Make a BINGO card with one trait for each square (someone who is on their first cruise, someone from a different country, and so on). Have the person you find sign off on the square, and the person to find someone for each square wins!
Where on the Ship…?
Use you phones to play “Where on the Ship…?” Take a picture, and send it to your group with clues on where you are. The first person to correctly guess is the next to take a turn. See what fun you can have while getting pictures for the scrapbook!
Towel Animal Theater
Do you have towel animals greeting you in your rooms? Put on a towel animal production. This technically isn’t a game, but the littlest travelers will get a kick out of putting on a show with the towel animals. Older groups can hold a contest to see who can create the best towel animal.
I hope these games will help your family and friends say connected and have fun. That’s what cruising is all about! Bon voyage!
