Celebrity Century's Fun Factory keeps the little ones entertained.

Family cruises on Celebrity Cruises 2015

These 11 ships are known for their sophisticated cuisine, upscale ambience, destination-focused itineraries and themed cruises focusing on art, food and wine. Still, families cruise Celebrity because it’s more low-key than its sister cruise line Royal Caribbean's ships, and the line offers popular kids’ programming.

What’s New: Celebrity has introduced a new (and free) program called iTake where aspiring young directors learn to shoot and edit video using the latest technology. iTake is available on all ships that have a Celebrity iLounge.

For kids: Celebrity Fun Factory programs are available for kids ages 3-11 from 9 am to 10 pm every day. The programs feature crafts, treasure hunts, theme parties, the latest gaming and more. Thanks to a partnership with LeapFrog Schoolhouse, there is special LeapFrog Edutainment designed exclusively for Celebrity Cruises that allow kids to virtually explore the ports they’re visiting. There are late-evening activities ($6/hour per child), and kids can eat with counselors at least once during a cruise.

Ships are outfitted with Xbox stations for players of all ages. Free play time is also available during certain times for Xbox 360 and Kinect for Xbox 360.

For teens: Cruisers ages 12-17 have their own X-Club with gaming consoles, late-night dance parties and sports. There’s also a special YSpa program for teens featuring massages, spray tans, styling sessions and more.

Around the ship: Kids’ pools and slides, as well as basketball courts, are available almost fleet-wide. In-room sitting is $19 per hour for up to three children. On shore days, some programming is available for an extra fee.
