One thing I am often asked about cruising with Crystal Cruises is "Is Crystal an appropriate cruise line for children?" The answer is ABSOLUTELY.
Now I must admit that I've never cruised with anyone BUT Crystal. No, Crystal doesn't have giant storybook characters to hug or a three-story water slide into a wave pool, but there is tons of fun to be had by the kid, preteen and teenaged set. Example- the almost-nightly dodgeball games on the paddle tennis court at the top of the ship.
Silly hats and facepaint are not mandatory, but improve the whole atmosphere.
Alix and family friend Chappy Wingo after a particularly grueling game.
Even the Junior Activity Directors get into the game.
Not everyone goes in for dodgeball...the Horne boys took a dip in the hot tub.
Yes, at nearly midnight!!
