Cruising Destinations


Cruises are no longer just for retirees. They are the hottest family vacation trend we’ve seen in recent years. Cruises offer plenty of activities for families. There are kids’ clubs for the youngest set, special programming for tweens and teens, water slides, surf simulators, stage shows, and enough food options to keep even ravenous teens satisfied.

Most of the major cruise lines offer family cruises, as does the best of them all: Disney Cruise Lines. Cruise to the Caribbean, Alaska, Europe or the Hawaiian Islands. Cruising makes it easy to travel with kids: Unpack once and visit multiple destinations.
