Launched: December 2009 and November 2011

Passengers: 6,296

Sails to: 5- and 7-night Caribbean cruises

For Kids: These ships debuted in 2009 and 2011 respectively, and are the largest ships at sea. Families will enjoy the onboard versions of Central Park-complete with grass and a carousel-and the boardwalks with artists that do caricatures you'll want to hang on your wall back home. The line has also partnered with Dreamworks to provide meet-and-greets with movie characters like Shrek and Kung Fu Panda, as well as a How to Train Your Dragon ice show.

For Grown-ups: Try the zip line, share morning coffees in the first Starbucks at sea, or catch a full-length Broadway stage performance of Chicago or Hairspray.

Babysitting: The ship has group babysitting for kids 6 months of age and up, with everything from a nursery filled with Fisher-Price toys to a Crayola room for toddlers.
