Cruising is one trip the whole family can get behind — the chance to see exotic locales from the comfort of resort-style lodging and endless entertainment onboard. It’s no wonder that over the last 10 years, the demand for cruising has increased 62 percent, according to Cruise Lines International Association. But because a good chunk of your vacation is spent on the ship, the amenities and activities available onboard are just as important as the destinations.

Cruise lines are increasingly offering activities and perks from shows and water slides to ice rinks and yummy treats for both parents and kids to enjoy while sailing the high seas.

For your next cruising adventure, here are some cruise ships offering the coolest things for kids to do.

Oasis of the Seas

This Royal Caribbean ship was named the world’s largest cruise ship in 2009, and it still remains one of the more popular among families. Why? Well, it keeps the kids occupied with plenty of options to let off steam, including an ice skating rink, zip line, FlowRider surf simulator, mini-golf and a sports deck. If they’re still itching for more, there are two 30-foot rock climbing walls aboard and The Boardwalk, a carnival-themed area complete with carousel, snacks and fun shops.
