Q. I want my children to enjoy their cruise but I want some time to relax too. Which cruise lines have good kids’ clubs?

A. When it comes to kids’ clubs at sea, you’ll find that the bigger lines, particularly Royal Caribbean, Disney, Carnival, Norwegian Cruise Line, Celebrity and MSC, tend to offer the best range of onboard facilities and activities for children of all ages; you can leave your kids with confidence, knowing they’ll usually make friends quickly (be warned – you may have trouble persuading them to leave the clubs to go on shore. Or go to bed). Some lines also offer character experiences, which are popular with children and their mums alike. The beauty of cruising is that it’s a stress-free way to travel with your family and take them to fabulous destinations around the world.
