Cruising with kids is a wonderful experience as it creates memories lasting a lifetime. That said, not all cruises are created equal. With a developing trend in adults-only and adult-centric cruising, choosing the right cruise line can be key to a successful family travel cruise, especially with a bucket-list cruise like Alaska.


Disney is synonymous with family fun and the cruise line is no exception. Hands down, it is one of the most popular choices for families cruising to Alaska. In addition to all the great things you will experience in Alaska, from whale watching to spotting glaciers to fun shore excursions like dog sledding adventures, Disney Cruise Line packs the whole trip with onboard fun.


Disney Cruise Line designs activities and experiences to deliver Disney’s signature enchantment with character greetings; showings of new, first-run Disney movies; and live stage shows like Frozen, A Musical Spectacular. The little ones can also enjoy kid-only pools and Disney’s Oceaneer Club, where they can play in spaces combining the timeless storytelling of Disney. The whole family can dine in style with a variety of themed restaurants.


When it comes to affordability (because let’s face it, cruising for a family can get pretty pricey), Carnival offers great deals. These budget-friendly cruises let families enjoy this trip of a lifetime without breaking the bank. When the family isn’t busy exploring the beauty of Alaska’s ports and waterways, kids will love Carnival’s fun, kid-friendly activities like the Build-a-Bear Workshop at Sea (offering a unique Carnival-themed design); an onboard candy shop; ZSpa, which offers spa treatments just for teens; and plenty of the cruise line’s signature Dr. Seuss-themed activities.
