Best Cruises for Families
Courtesy of Crystal Cruises
Luxury line Crystal Cruises has been making a big play for multigenerational family groups, with its dedicated play areas and kids' programming—especially during holidays and the summer school break. Activities on the 1,080-passenger Crystal Serenity include kiddie cooking classes in the galley and a tour backstage in the theater. Perhaps most attractive to parents are special promotions where kids under age 18 cruise free on select sailings.
Sample Cruise: 10-day northern Europe, Copenhagen to Stockholm, from $4,850 per person. crystalcruises.com
