6 Reasons to Book a Cruise Next Year

Planning a vacation with the kids in tow is always a little tricky—especially if they’re a few years apart. Here’s what we love most about cruising.

1. The food and (some) beverages are almost always included. Enough said. 

2. There are usually free kids’ clubs with activities for all ages. And a built-in sitter onboard means one thing: date night for the grown-ups.

3. You’ve got an indoor or outdoor water park, Caribbean vacation and resort spa all in one. Be sure to drop the kids off with a babysitter and treat yourself to a massage.
4. You can cross a few islands off your bucket list in just one trip. Take in the sights, indulge in local cuisine, try a zip line or sun yourself on a pristine beach.

5. If you pick a Disney cruise, you’ll get a taste of the Mouse without heading to the parks, which is a nice  alternative if you’ve exhausted the Magic Kingdom. 

6.  There’s stuff for teens and bigger kids, too. Many ships offer video game centers, skating rinks and indoor skydiving.
