Carnival Cruise Lines and Disney Cruise Lines are two of the best cruise options for families, according to CruiseCritic.com. Both offer special programs for kids of all ages, which gives parents some private time while offering plenty of activities that the entire family may enjoy.
The Carnival Dream and the Carnival Breeze have three separate Camp Carnivals, based on age. Both ships have WaterWorks, an onboard water park and SportSquare, an outside activity area with a mini golf course. Family activities include outdoor movies and game shows. Family cabins are also larger.
Disney Cruise Line ships are just as magical as the Disney theme parks. They also have kids' clubs, water slides and family-friendly shows and games. The ships also have Mickey and Minnie and a host of iconic Disney characters who interact with guests.
