This allows you to escape that guilt of “letting yourself go” while on vacation. For the kids, there are scheduled activities to keep them entertained and allow them to interact with other vacationers. There are even a playground and a game room! They can go in there and challenge someone to a duel in one of those games and it will feel like they never left home.
