What makes a good kids club on a cruise ship?

Family Vacation Sanity Saver – Kids Club

Although I admit that traveling with kids is not a stress free proposition, I would rather deal with a little adversity than stay home.

Our family has taken some fabulous trips with the kids to land based resorts like Beaches and Club Med. We have embarked on wonderful cruises with the family.  Whether we choose a land based resort  or a cruise, we always find out if the location has a kids club.

What makes a good kids club at an all inclusive resort or cruise line?

A good kids club is a safe and friendly environment with lots of activities for children of all ages. Family friendly resorts and cruises offer programs that educate, entertain and supervise kids.

Family-Friendly cruise lines

Below are our favorite cruise lines:


Celebrity Cruises

Disney Cruise Line is a family-friendly cruise line that gets high marks for their innovative kids club programs.  A Disney Cruise offers group babysitting for children as young as 12 weeks and as old as three.  The babysitting program is available for a fee where the kids club for ages 3 – 17 is included in the cruise fare.   Disney’s Oceaneer Club provides a play space specifically designed for ages three to seven, while Disney’s Oceaneer Lab is for ages eight to 12.  Lastly, Disney offer teens their own space on board, which includes big-screen televisions, a lounge area, a dance floor and an Internet café.
