These cruise ships are making waves with new kid-friendly rides, shows, and even more spacious cabins.

Carnival Breeze

8 of 11

Carnival's newest ship serves up a family-focused experience that includes a water park with slides and a giant dump bucket, which elicits squeals of delight as it soaks those underneath. A SkyCourse ropes course, meanwhile, lets kids dangle 150 feet above sea level. The 3,690-passenger ship has also introduced a lively game show in conjunction with Hasbro, where families compete at larger-than-life versions of Sorry! and Yahtzee. An all-cruise pass ($14.95) grants access to the 24-seat Thrill Theater, whose 3-D movies include special effects like blowing air and squirting water.

Sample Cruise: Six-night southern Caribbean, round-trip from Miami, from $399. carnival.com
