Happy Traveler Comment
I am writing you this note because I want you to know what a great employee you have in Robin! We have worked with her now for at least two if not more cruises, and she always handles everything quickly and promptly and with ease for us. We have had to change dates a couple of times with the latest cruise we are booking with your company and she always handles it graciously and with ease. Robin is great to work with, and with customer service as good as hers is we will keep coming back to her for our travel needs! Thanks! — Tyson B.

During the day, there are water activities including some of the greatest waterslides in the world. If you want to relax, lay by the pool to soak up some sun, or ease your stress away in the hot tub.

Many ships have miniature golf, basketball, driving ranges, and other sports. For children, there are age-appropriate activities and learning experiences.

Onboard Activities

The size of your ship will have a lot to do with the available activities. Cruise lines with huge ships usually have water parks with water cannons and designated splash zones, crazy water slides that twist and turn at great speeds before depositing you into a final pool.

Carnival Vista’s Kaleid-o-slide features 455 feet of twists, turns, and visual effects. Some Disney ships have the 765-foot AquaDuck waterslide ride, and FreeFall is found on Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway.

Ships have special water park activities for children to keep them cool and busy. Cruise lines also have children’s clubs or camps with fun activities and entertainment for all ages. Special activities are available for teens as well. Parents wanting a romantic dinner and dancing can utilize babysitting services provided by most lines.


Cruise ships offer wonderful evening entertainment. You can watch movies under the stars, listen to live music at a lounge, attend a musical performance or play, enjoy a comedy club, relax to a classical music performance, or even participate in karaoke or a fun family game show.

Each cruise line has its own brand of entertainment. Some offer Broadway-caliber musicals. We can help you find the ship that offers all the things you want on your vacation.

Exercise and Relaxing Spas

Many people want to keep in shape even on vacation. State-of-the-art gyms on many ships are the perfect fit for the health-minded cruiser.

Unwind and relax in the spa with an amazing massage and a refreshing facial. Hot stones, aromatherapy, and amazing lotions and creams will pamper your muscles and body.
