Disney Cruise Line
Launched: January 2011
Sails to: 3-, 4-, and 5-night cruises from Port Canaveral, Fla., to the Bahamas
For Kids: As you'd expect from a Disney ship, there is a ton for kids to do here. The AquaDuck, the first at-sea roller coaster (kids have to be 54 inches or taller to ride alone, or 42 inches ifaccompanied by another rider) flies around the ship's top deck and even juts out over the open ocean for a spell. Younger kids have their choice of two pools, a waterslide and a sweet Nemo-themed spash pool designed to accomodate the littlest passengers. The ship is decorated with "enchanted art," which animates when you stand in front of it and some interior cabins feature magic portholes which show a real time picture of the weather outside and feature visits from Mickey Mouse and Nemo. A state of the art kids club and nursery (which may put your kid's back-home daycare or preschool to shame) is run by CPR trained staffers and of course at any minute your kids could run into a famous passenger like Tinker Bell or Snow White!
For Grown-ups: On Deck 11, you'll find an adults-only pool; there's also an adults-only area on the line's private beach. Onboard at night, there are two adults-only restaurants: Palo, which is Italian, and Remy, which serves French fare, offers wine-pairing menus and is inspired by the movie Ratatouille.
Babysitting: The Small World nursery has quiet places for babies 3-months to 3-years to sleep, and the amazing Oceanear Club keeps 3- to 10-year-olds happy and playing. Parents get deck phones to use on ship to keep in touch with their kids.
