They may not be resorts on land, but since the upfront price covers lodging, onboard entertainment, children's programs and more food than you could ever hope to eat, cruises are easy to budget. Family-friendly lines offer daylong kids' programs and teen hang-outs, plus spas and dance lounges for adults. The something-for-every-age-group activities keep multigenerational groups busy on board. In port on a Caribbean cruise, you can hike, bike, sail, snorkel and play golf. In Europe, explore real castles, centuries-old cities and world-class art museums.
Onboard many Royal Caribbean
ships, families can rock climb, ice skate, surf and play basketball or mini-golf. Royal Caribbean"s mega-ship, Oasis of the Seas, adds a carousel and a zip line to the fun. Along with extensive programs for kids and teens, Carnival Cruise Lines
offers supervised activities for tots as young as 2 years and counselors who change diapers. To the entertainment lineup, Carnival Dream adds an evening laser show and a comedy club.
