If your extended family likes to vacation together and you want to include everyone – youngest to oldest – in your next getaway, consider a family cruise. It’s a lovely way to make special memories by exploring new places together.
Larger ships can
be especially good for multigenerational groups because they have activities
your whole crew can enjoy together: think pools, deck games, and live shows.
They also have activities for specific age groups, like toddler play areas, special
clubs for kids and teens, and casinos and nightclubs for adults.
These are a few
big ships we think are terrific for multigenerational family groups:
Cruise Line’s newest ship, the Disney Wish, everyone loves the special
effects-laden trip down the AquaMouse water slide. The whole family can also enjoy
immersive experiences in themed restaurants that are based on the Marvel
cinematic universe, the glittering world of Frozen, and the Golden Age of
Hollywood. There are spaces and activities for kids, tweens, and teens, but also
some reserved just for adults, including the Star Wars-themed Hyperspace Lounge.
If your family
loves amusement park thrills, consider Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest ship, the
Prima, and its three-level, 14-turn go-kart track. Anyone who is under
55” tall (or just doesn’t want to drive) can watch from the observation area at
the top of the track. For even more excitement visit The Drop, a heart-pumping,
10-story-high dry slide. The family can also have fun watching live
entertainment in a three-story theater, splashing at the Aqua Park, or playing virtual
reality games in the Galaxy Pavilion.
Oasis Class ships are some of the largest at sea, with seven different
neighborhoods brimming with activities. Your family can explore the Royal
Promenade, lined with shops, cafes, and clubs; Central Park, where quiet
pathways wind among real trees and flowers; Entertainment Place, which features
live theater and ice-skating performances; and the carnival-themed Boardwalk,
complete with a handcrafted wooden carousel. Kids can play with new friends in
the Youth Zone, while adults can head to the spa and fitness center.
If your family
would rather enjoy some small-ship luxury, one option is the Ritz-Carlton Yacht
Collection’s Evrima. This elegant yacht has a dedicated space where kids
aged 4 to 12 can play and learn, with eco-themed activities led by a youth
