Top Ten Cruise Lines for Families

A lot of people like to go on cruises for vacations. But sometimes they pick a cruise line they isn't suited for their family, so they often don't have much to do at sea. Here are the top ten best cruise lines for families (in my opinion)
The Top Ten
1 Disney Cruise Line

Disney Cruise Line's ships were built for families. From the Disney-themed restaurants to the teen's club located in the ship's funnel, to people in Disney costumes wandering the ship, DCL is the best cruise line for families. They have waterslides, and the Dream and Fantasy even have a water coaster at sea!

My life has been changed by these people. It's an amazing experience.

2 Royal Caribbean International

Royal Caribbean offers some of the finest ships out there for families. Their Oasis- and Freedom-class ships feature the FlowRider, an onboard surfing simulator, youth programs, mini-golf, and other activities.

These are the biggest cruise ships in the world, way bigger and better than any other cruise line.

3 Carnival Cruise Lines

Carnival is the go-to cruise line if you want an affordable cruise that will make your kids happy. They offer 3-7 day cruises at reasonable prices and provide activities like Camp Carnival, Circle C, Club O2, mini-golf, waterslides, and so much more.

The ship is very fun, and the kids' clubs are great!

4 Norwegian Cruise Line

Norwegian is a good cruise line if you enjoy waterslides. They have lots and lots of waterslides. Don't worry. They also offer youth programs, and the Breakaway class ships even have mini-golf.

5 Princess Cruises

In my opinion, Princess Cruises has one of the biggest innovations in cruising: freshwater pools. This allows your skin to not be irritated by the water. They also offer a mini-golf course called Princess Links, as well as teen and kids' programs.

6 P&O Cruises

Normally, P&O goes for a more British style of cruising, but it also offers teen and kids' programs. The Ventura is a departure from their traditional style and is more family-oriented. They offer facilities, pools, and even a bungee cable (the type that you bounce up and down on, not the type where you dive down).

7 MSC Cruises

While MSC Cruises may seem adult-oriented, they actually offer several facilities for younger passengers. First, they have a kids sail free policy, which allows children to sail free year-round. They also offer kids' and teens' clubs, waterslides, and plenty of spaces to just chill out.

8 Celebrity Cruises

Although this cruise line markets toward leisure, it still offers plenty of onboard facilities for teens and toddlers. Celebrity Cruises provides four different groups for different ages of kids: Shipmates for ages 3-5, Cadets for ages 6-8, Ensigns for ages 9-11, and Teens for ages 12-17. They also offer shows onboard, and there are pools on their ships as well as the Celebrity-exclusive AquaSpa.

9 Costa Cruises

Costa Cruises brings many things to the table, such as an F-1 racing simulator (not on all their ships) and Costa Kids (their youth program, I believe). As mentioned earlier, there are also plenty of places to relax.

10 Holland America Line

Overall, HAL isn't as kid-friendly as other cruise lines, but they still have facilities such as Club HAL, The Loft, and many programs aboard. I would recommend HAL to those who prefer laid-back cruising.
