Princess Cruises' The Ruby Princess and other ships in its "Grand Class" category take pride in the extensive programs for children, ages 3-7, 8-12, and 13-17, respectively. While the youngest participants take part in pizza parties and pajama nights, older grandchildren enjoy video games, arts and crafts, and jukeboxes. The ship also features a splash pool and arcade. Princess ships sail to all seven continents.

Consider bringing walkie-talkies (and plenty of extra batteries) to keep in touch with your grandkids during the day.
Don't forget to tip the youth counselors who help entertain your grandchildren aboard ship.
