A few cruise tips on keeping the kids busy.

On a cruise vacation, we're all kids. But if you'll be traveling with some of those types of kids who are less than 18 years old, you'll be happy to know that they'll find plenty to keep them entertained.

For the youngest of the young-at-heart -- 3 years old and below -- there are variations among cruise lines as to what is available for this group. Check with your cruise line to be sure.

For 3-year-olds up to teenagers, there are excellent kids' camps available, such as Carnival's Camp Carnival, and Royal Caribbean's Adventure Ocean. These facilities are ran by a highly-trained and educated staff, and at least some cruise lines require them to have a college degree in education or some similar field. The cruise lines take taking care of your children seriously, and not just anybody gets to fill these positions.

These camps are designed to keep your kids entertained for hours, and are equipped to do just that. Check out is very secure; requiring that the person who checked the child in is the one who has to come with I.D. to check the child out.

After normal kids' camp hours, there is a pay-per-hour service where your kids can stay longer. Check with your cruise line for details.

For the teenagers, there are also teen-type 'clubs,' where they can get away from their younger siblings and talk, dance, and drink non-alcoholic (of course) beverages with other teenagers.

Of course, there are countless other non-organized activities for children scattered around the ship, to possibly include rock wall climbing, swimming, water slides, ice skating, video games, and much more.

There is no need to worry about the possibility of your children getting bored on a cruise ship. In fact, your biggest problem may be getting them to spend some time with you as a family.
