Oasis of the Seas, Allure of the Seas
Allure of the Seas is the largest cruise ship in the world. Although the two cruise ships of the Royal Caribbean were supposed to be identical, it was later discovered that Allure of the Seas is greater than Oasis of the Seas by 5 cm. In any case, children take the most of them for sure. We are talking about several entertainments areas, including a water park, organized parades and parties for every special occasion. The DreamWorks animation character are there, including Shrek, Fiona, Kung Fu Panda and the Madagascar penguins. They are walking the vessel and of course are very friendly with those who want to take a picture of or with them.
Norwegian Breakaway, Norwegian Getaway
There is definitely an unforgettable experience when cruising with either Norwegian Breakaway, or Norwegian Getaway, especially if you are a child. In case you are, I figure you might be interested in the Aqua Park, the largest waterpark, with five waterslides included, at sea. Basically you have the feeling that you are in a floating city. The ship representatives say the slides can easily enjoy a thousand people per hour. But just in case, water is not your thing, you can escape in the Wii computer games. Did I mention that SpongeBob and his friends are aboard? If you are an adult, take notice, you will have no less than 27 bars and restaurants on board, and concert halls where they are playing Broadway shows.
If your kid is a big fan of the Smurfs, then the MSC Divina is the best cruise ship for him/her. In their program for children, this cruise ship hosts basically everything Smurf-themed, from the songs soundtrack needed for parties, to Smurf parade and even a Smurf cooking class. Children, age between 3 and 11 will be entertained with culinary demonstrations performed by a cooking chef and a pastry chef. Besides the fun features for children, if you are an adult you will surely enjoy the F1 simulator available on MVC Divina, or the casino or the coolness of one of the four pools. If you are a movie fan, you can relax yourself watching your favorite movie on the outdoor cinema or in the 4D cinema. The ship has 18 decks, of which 13 are for passenger’s cabins and they are named after gods from the Greek mythology. Overall, MSC Divina is one of the newest and most modern cruise from all the cruise ships in the world.
Carnival Breeze, Carnival Sunshine
Fun is at home at the Carnival cruise ships. Either you want to have a good time on the deck, or inside, Carnival is the perfect place to be. Carnival Breeze has a Sport Square, an exterior zone, land of exercising and play, a two floors mini golf field included. The resistance piece is SkyCourse, where passengers are running and swinging on 8 rope assemblies, suspended in the air. If you are a fan of the Cat in the Hat or other characters, you will have a pleasant surprise to meet them aboard, all along with Dr. Seuss.
