Cruises provide families with the convenience of a pre-planned itinerary, and the reassurance that kids will be entertained every step of the way. With the variety of options available, there’s no doubt you’ll find something to suit your travel needs! Hop from country to country with a cruise through Northern Europe, or spend time journeying through Japan and other parts of Asia. While Disney Cruises let youngsters hang out with some of their favorite characters in the United States, Alaska Cruises bring you through unique landmarks and natural wonders, some of which aren’t accessible by foot. Royal Carribean is available for everything in between, whether you’re looking to spend a day lounging at a waterpark, or some time cramming as many excursions as you can. Multi-generational trips, traveling with babies, and shorter, but more extensive vacations are all made easier with a cruise!

We had heard so many good things about the Royal Caribbean’s Oasis class of ships (the largest ships in the world). So we decided on the Harmony of the Seas. This was a 7 day cruise, stopping at St. Maarten, Puerto Rico, and Labadee, Haiti.Read More
