    My extended family wants to take a Disney Cruise. The ages of children range from 5-15 years. Which cruise do you recommend?

    Welcome aboard, Kendra! How exciting that your extended family is looking to book a cruise with Disney! You're all in for such fun!

    Each of Disney Cruise Line's ships is unique, but they all have fabulous Family Activities, Adult Activities and Youth Clubs. If the Youth Clubs will be a big draw for the kiddos, check out the differences in each of them on the ships. The teens will love Vibe, the club just for them, and the Dream and Fantasy certainly have the coolest Vibe at sea, with more space for the teens and their own pool and sundeck! But, Vibe on the Magic and Wonder is a great hangout too, with many of the same activities and events. 

    The Magic just underwent a huge re-imagination, especially with the Oceaneer Club and Lab, for kids ages three to 12. If you have superhero fans, check out Marvel's Avengers Academy, where they can virtually create their own Iron Man suit and even meet Captain America himself! I was just onboard last month and boy is this space cool for kids! 

    I couldn't recommend just one ship over the other, as they are all so unique, but again, offer many of the same experiences, so no matter which you choose, you're all in for fun! Play around with the different itineraries and ships and see which sailing best fits your family's budget, then go for it! You really can't go wrong with any of Disney's pixie-dusted vessel! Have fun planning, Kendra!
