Best of Cruising: Family Fun

060216_royalcaribbeanfamily.jpgA cruise vacation is ideal for families with children. With a safe environment and enough facilities and activities to keep everyone amused, parents can relax, and kids can have fun. Put these cruise lines at the top of your list when you want to bring the kids along.

Disney Cruise Line. Disney works its legendary magic by creating not only top-notch youth programs, but also activities with adult appeal as well. Add a dash of pixie dust and appearances by Mickey Mouse, and there’s a lot of family fun to share.

Carnival Cruise Line. Kid- and teen-friendly spaces packed with toys, games, and activities—combined with nonstop adult action—offer families a casual, laid-back vacation with something for everyone.

Royal Caribbean International. Well-conceived areas for children and teens, plus sports facilities that invite active family members to play together, are bonuses for parents who want to spend quality family time with the kids.

Norwegian Cruise Line. Facilities for teens and tots on the newest ships, especially Norwegian Spirit, have to be seen to be believed. Water parks, playrooms, and discos are elaborate, and even picky kids should find the active programs enticing.
