Best Cruises for Families
Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas
The world's largest ships can also brag about an award-winning kids’ program and attractions that include ice-skating rinks, ziplines, and merry-go-rounds. Thanks to a deal with DreamWorks, characters from Shrek, Madagascar, and Kung Fu Panda make frequent appearances on these ships (as well as Freedom of the Seas and Liberty of the Seas). Complimentary Barbie activities, including movies and storytelling, will tickle some little girls pink.
Sample Cruise: Seven-night eastern or western Caribbean, year-round from Fort Lauderdale, FL, Allure or Oasis, from $799. royalcaribbean.com
