Cruises Kids Love
It's no surprise that Disney Magic and Disney Wonder cruises are popular with kids. Nearly a whole deck on these cruises is dedicated to kid-friendly activities. They are age specific with additional activities available for teens. In fact, teenagers get their own clubhouse at the top of the ship! From Goofy's Detective School to Mexican cooking lessons held on cruises to Mexico, only Disney could facilitate so much family fun for kids. Nightly entertainment is also family oriented and includes contests and other ways for families to participate. An on-site nursery is provided for babies aged three months and up.
Disney also offers seven-night land-and-sea packages that include accommodations before the cruise at one of the Walt Disney World resorts. These packages include unlimited admission to Disney theme parks, water parks, Downtown Disney, DisneyQuest Indoor Interactive Theme Park, and Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex.
As another great amenity, Disney offers a number of kids clubs. The Oceaneer Club is for kids aged three to seven and is designed to look like Captain Hook's ship. The Oceaneer Lab, for kids aged eight to twelve, focuses on the universe in a lab setting and an interactive play area. Add live shows and Disney characters who are liable to interact with kids at any given moment to the mix, and Disney Cruises and all inclusive resorts for traveling families just can't be beat. (
It's the massive waterslides, outside movie nights, and video game arcades that make Carnival Liberty and Carnival Freedom cruises such a hit with kids. Activities are divided into five different age groups so no one gets bored, and a softer play area and wading pool are on deck for the tiny ones. (
Norwegian Pearl and Norwegian Gem cruises travel to Alaska, the Bahamas, Bermuda, Canada, Central America, and South America. These floating palaces even have bowling alleys. Youth activities on these cruises are led by youth counselors. The boats also have “teen clubs,” each with its own juice bar. (
