Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas is currently the largest cruise vessel afloat, and the 5,400-passenger Oasis of the Seas will take over that title when it debuts this December. But you'll find many of the same kid-friendly amenities on the smaller (though by no means petite) Voyager of the Seas. Best of all, you'll save $100 per person on an oceanview cabin, compared with a comparable itinerary on the Freedom of the Seas. Only 27 hours of this Central American itinerary is spent in ports, but there's plenty to keep kids entertained on board: a rock-climbing wall, an ice-skating rink, a miniature golf course, an in-line skating track, and full-size basketball and volleyball courts. Which leaves you scads of time to lounge by the adults-only pool or get a massage at the spa (866-562-7625; royalcaribbean.com).
