Cruise ships are often magnets for families, with activities and entertainment designed for an all-ages crowd. But certain ships really cater to kids, offering everything from age-specific clubs where they can hang out and make new friends to crazy water parks with racing slides, character breakfasts, all-you-can-eat taco bars, and dining rooms that keep the mac-and-cheese and ice cream coming night after night. But these ships are not all about the kids. You'll appreciate the cabins built for more-than-two — as well as the cocktail bars, casinos, and adults-only pools, not to mention the babysitting services. Here are our picks for the best cruises for kids, and exactly what they offer. 1. Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy These two ships (Disney's newest and largest) are both family-friendly wonderlands, with extensive kids clubs, plenty of places to splash, well-designed cabins configured to make families comfortable, and a nursery that welcomes kids as young as six months old. Dining: If you can convince your children to order something other than a hot dog (again) you'll find that kids’ menus in the main dining rooms go beyond the standard choices to healthier options. Mickey Mouse ice-cream pops are available day and night — a great inspiration for finishing, say, their vegetables.
