Best Cruises for Families
Courtesy of Princess Cruises
In June 2013, Princess Cruises will debut its newest and largest ship, the 3,600-passenger Royal Princess, with expanded space dedicated to kids—even outdoors. In addition to using age-appropriate centers, younger kids can frolic in an open-air playground complete with spinners and a slide, plus space to ride a fleet of tricycles. Kids ages 8 to 12 get a dedicated outdoor space with living room-style furnishings and games. Teens, meanwhile, can linger in their own hip outdoor area complete with cool club lighting, loungers and even a wading pool.
Sample Cruise: 12-day Grand Mediterranean, between Barcelona and Venice, from $2,299 double occupancy. princess.com
