From zipping down the water slides and traversing the suspended ropes course to enjoying a delicious family-style meal in the Cucina del Capitano Italian restaurant, Kelly and her children demonstrate why family cruising is the industryâ€™s fastest growing market.

Designed as the ultimate family vacation, the 130,000-ton floating resort offers more than 19,000 square feet of space dedicated to children and families, including a WaterWorks water park with the legendary 312-foot-long Twister slide, an outdoor recreation area called SportSquare and dedicated play areas and youth programs for kids in three age groups ranging from 2-17.
