The Super Ships for Families

Vacation voyages aboard these ocean liners are sure to please the grandkids — and you!

By Ludmilla Alexander

Taking a cruise with the grandchildren is a joy when they are happily exploring their floating hotel, making friends with other youngsters, and marveling at exciting ports of call. It's important to choose a ship that provides plenty of age-appropriate programs to occupy kids while the adults play, and that offers great recreational areas where the generations can come together to splash, compete, or kick back.
