Before booking a cruise you need to make certain just what sort of cruise you are looking for. It is not worth booking one if you are mature in age, and the ship caters more towards families and teens. This also works the other way, so if you have kids, then certain cruise ships need to be avoided.
Best cruises for kids by ship – so you have made your choice to go on a cruise that caters for families with children, and plan to sail in June or July, before prices start to increase.
The likes of Disney and Carnival always cater for young sailors, which is evident in the daily and evening activities and entertainment. The number of children going on cruises is increasing each year, and so other cruise companies that never catered too much for children are now starting to.
If you have your heart set on a Royal Caribbean cruise and have children to take, then you need to consider booking to go on Allure of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas. These are the largest ships in the fleet and so are ideal for families with kids of all ages.
For those that have Norwegian Cruise Line in mind Norwegian Breakaway, Norwegian Getaway and Norwegian Epic are the three ships that will be ideal.
Carnival Breeze and Carnival Sunshine do a superb job catering for kids, although Vista will be even better, although not until 2016.
Disney Dream, Fantasy and Magic cater more so for children aged 4 to 11 and have a range of facilities to keep them occupied throughout the day.
Other ships to consider are the Royal, Ruby, Crown and Emerald Princess, as well as P&O’s Ventura. You can find more details on each of these ships here.
