Seamless cruising on Silvesea & Seabourn; Honeymooning With the Kids at Great Wolf Lodge

 

Kids, parents and even grand folks frolic together in the 78,000-square-foot indoor water park climbing on and off a variety of exhilarating (and sometimes scary) water slides. Children hang onto their parents, couples hold onto each other for dear life on the spine-tingling Coyote Cannon with its 40 foot plunge and the awesome Alberta Falls— where three four-story tube slides twist and turn propelling you at top speed outside the Lodge and back into the pool. Equally exciting, the Totem Towers—a pair of fast-paced, three-story body slides is not for the feint hearted while Whooping Hollow is ideal for tiny tots.  For tamer adventures you can sit in a tube and sail around the lazy river, play in the gentle wave pool, shoot basketball hoops or simply plotz in a lounge chair and watch the non-stop action.

 

Isn’t It Romantic?

 

Couples can and do find romance at Great Wolf Lodge.  While most of the 404 suites bear children themes, there are a number of romantic Whirlpool Fireplace suites, with oversize Jacuzzi tubs, king size bed, two TVs, microwave, coffee maker and refrigerator, and plenty of places where adults can escape for a peaceful interlude while the kids go wild in the water park, arcade or game rooms.

 

Romantic tip #1:  Order in a pizza and open a bottle of wine and sit by the fire.

Romantic tip #2: Enjoy much-needed pampering and quality time and book massages, facials or other indulgences at the serene, Aveda-scented Elements Spa.

Romantic tip #3: Take a leisurely stroll around the bucolic countryside surrounding the resort.

Romantic tip #4:  Leave the kids in the able hands of the Wolf staff in the Cub Club, a recreation center offering activities, crafts and walks for the kids, and do your own thing.

Romantic tip #5:  Feed the kids at the Bear Claw Café/Pizza Hut Express, then enjoy a leisurely meal in the Bar & Grille restaurant, where you can pick and choose from an extensive, gourmet buffet.
