Default First time cruising

I would like to take my family on a cruise in January of 09. We are a group of six adults-age range 30 to 60 and 3 children ages 3,8, and 16. Other then the very expensive disney cruises are there other cruises that would offer something for all of us? Especially the kids?

Hi!
The only first thing to do is to meet a TA who has experience in cruising.Don't be shy to ask any question,even if you think it is silly.Some ships are very oriented for chidren program,the TA should know about and
at the same time the adults & children excursions.After your visit to the travel agency,you can check by calling the ship company yourself and ask the same question.Let me know or write to me for more information.
Good luck. Mateli

I would suggest either Carnival or RCI. Both have great kids programs,& lots to do for everybody..The newer RCI ships, like the Freedom, have an amazing kids pool area...

RCI - check the larger ships with their innovations.
