Norwegian Cruise: Norwegian Bliss
Featuring the largest race track at sea, an Aqua Park with a tandem water slide, and the Bliss Theater showcasing the Tony Award®- winning musical Jersey Boys, Norwegian Bliss is one of the largest ships at sea, and one of the most incredible. With 180-degree panoramic views, the Observation Lounge lets you absorb the natural beauty of the sea and land while enjoying cocktails. In addition, foodies will delight in the variety of dining options from Cagney’s Steakhouse to Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville at Sea. If you are looking to travel in sophistication, book The Haven. The posh accommodations on the top of the ship features a 24-hour butler service with private dining and a sundeck.

Disney Cruise: Fantasy
The most magical place on earth, Disney’s Fantasy does what the brand does best: bring out the kid in all of us. With over the top on-board entertainment, guests enjoy Broadway style shows and deck parties filled with fireworks. Beginning in 2020, two popular experiences, Star Wars Day at Sea and Marvel Day at Sea, return for limited engagements. In addition to character appearances, these epic adventures will include themed activities, live shows, and special merchandise. Off the ship, swim with stingrays, shoot down water slides on the 2400 floating platform or sneak away for a relaxing cabana massage on Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay. Aside from the plethora of activities, there is plenty of space for families. Book one of the Concierge rooms and enjoy a large private veranda, separate bedrooms, and premium amenities.

Celebrity Cruises: Infinity
If you’re looking to embark on a luxury cruise, look no further. Celebrity Infinity is the only premium cruise line to offer the Retreat Suite. Upon arrival guests are welcomed with a bottle of champagne, personal butler, and chocolates, but it doesn’t end there. Retreat guests also enjoy a private lounge with complimentary beverages and bites, as well as their own restaurant the Luminae. Besides exclusive dishes, Luminae’s Michelin Star Chef creates a dining experience like no other with Skull Mapping™, 3D table animation art which comes alive in a brilliantly choreographed menu. As luxurious is it may be, there is still plenty of on-board activities and excursions for the littles.
