There are a lot of perks to choosing a cruise as a family vacation, and the food situation is no exception. Our life hacks expert Amanda Mushro recently went on a Princess Cruises Alaska adventure and shared her top tips for anyone considering a cruise vacation with their family.

There are foods for any appetite
Anyone traveling with their family knows that mealtime can get a little tricky because everyone has their own appetites. Luckily, that's not an issue aboard a cruise ship--you can find options for everyone from the most adventurous eater--to the pickiest one. The best part? everyday dining is all included all included!

The dining room is great for family dinners
With all the daily excursions and on-board activities, the dining room on the ship can be a great way to come together as a family and talk about all of the amazing adventures of the day. There are classic kid and adult options, as well as dishes inspired by the places you'll visit while you're on your cruise.

Room service is perfect for early morning wake-ups
There can be early wakeup calls for on-shore excursion days, and since everyone will be on vacation time, you may not be able to get your kids out of bed any earlier to eat breakfast. That's why room service is the perfect option for those early-morning meals--and it's included! There are a variety of options from coffees and teas to muffins and croissants sure to fill up everyone's bellies and get them ready for an adventure.

The buffet is perfect for quick meals
At the end of an on-shore excursion day--you're going to have some hungry kids on your hands. The buffet is the perfect option for a quick dinner. There's something for everyone, and you don't need to sit and wait for your food!

You can get food 24 hours a day--seriously!
The absolute best part of dining on a cruise? You can get something to eat at ANY hour of the day. That means you never have to break in your activities for a meal if you don't want to--just grab a slice of pizza, enjoy a late-night ice cream--and keep going!
