      Family Friendly Cruise Lines - Our Top Three Picks

Carnival Cruises

Carnival boasts some of the largest standard cabins in the industry, with interior staterooms as big as 185 square feet and outside up to 230. Some of these staterooms can accommodate up to five people with two lower beds that convert to a king (on most other lines' ships, the smaller-than-normal twins only double to queen size), two upper beds that fold out from the wall and a rollaway.

Disney Cruises

Most of Disney's staterooms include the much-ballyhooed privacy curtain, which divides the room in two, with bathrooms on the grownups' side. Also, unlike a full-size sofa bed that hogs up floor space, the convertible twin sofa with pull-down bed above can stay set up all day (like bunk beds) so each child has his/her own space. A celestial scene spans the ceiling above the bed, complete with Peter Pan, Tinker Bell and Wendy flying through the sky.

Celebrity Cruises

Celebrity’s family-friendly amenities include cribs, refrigerators, children's menus and freshly mashed baby food (must be requested pre-cruise). In addition, Celebrity is one of the few cruise lines that offers in-cabin babysitting.
