Many cruise lines are known for being booze cruises – full of casinos, bars, and music-thumping nightclubs. But there are more than a few cruise lines that are family-friendly and suitable for travelers of all ages. You can still pop into one of these cruises’ bars and have a beer (or two), but you’ll also find that there’s no shortage of fun activities that will also keep the young ones busy while you’re out at sea.
So pack your bags, say bon voyage, and head out on any one of these ships to experience an unforgettable family vacation.
1. Norwegian Breakaway
Norwegian Cruise Breakway is ideal for families, especially if you’re traveling with young kids and tweens. Children can join the Splash Academy that features arts and crafts, karaoke, and video games. A jungle gym can also be found onboard, as well as flat-screen TVs playing the latest kid-approved movies.
Teenagers will also have a ball in the Entourage lounge that comes equipped with an air hockey table, rappelling walls, bowling alleys, and rock climbing.
For an additional fee, you can drop off your kids at the babysitting station, but we wouldn’t be surprised if you decided to stick around and have some fun in the kids center!
