Fancy a family sojourn at sea? Celebrity Cruises’ ships appeal to adults (martini bar! spa! casino!), but offer tons of to-do’s for children. Shannon Still Wright, Youth Program Manager of Celebrity Century and her trusty crew carefully supervise the four-tiered kids X-Club program. Ship Mates to Admiral Ts (ages 3 to 17) are kept busy from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. so parents can get their groove on from club to cabin! The littles play LeapFrog interactive games and get all kinds of crafty while tweens have “Mission Impossible” scavenger hunts and “Casino Royale” faux-gambling games to earn Celebrity dollars. Meanwhile, teens escape to the X-treme Lounge where mocktails, a dj, Wii, and Guitar Hero help keep eye rolls at bay. Plus, the whole fam can bond over sundae-building, bingo, karaoke, and dancing if they crave together time. Though you won’t spend much time in them, staterooms are a decent size—some inside cabins fit four svelt sailors, though roomy veranda suites are an affordable upgrade (with discounts for the third and fourth mate) if you anticipate cozying up to the buffet every day. Four and five night Western Caribbean cruises start at $269 per person for April sailings.
