SHARE CRUISE LINES NOW CATER TO YOUNG FAMILIES YEAR-ROUND

Family cruises with organized activities for children have gained in popularity so much they are now being offered year-round, not just during holidays and the summer season, says a cruise executive.

A recent trend has been programs tailored for toddler-age passengers, which helps fill the need of parents seeking entertainment and activities for the whole family, according to Bob Dickinson, president of Carnival Lines.Shipboard facilities for kids now include playrooms, video arcades, and children's wading pools, he says. Activities include ice cream parties, finger painting and puppet shows.
