Travel + Leisure World’s Best In Family Travel 2011: Large & Small Cruise Lines, Tours & More!


Travel + Leisure has announced their picks for the Best in Family Travel for 2011. I have to say I am in complete agreement with their picks for Top Large Cruise Lines and Tour Operators. I confess, I have yet to take a river cruise or a cruise on a small cruise line, however I’m hoping that will change in the near future ;).

Without further ado, here are the top picks for family cruising and touring.

    Mine and my husbands twelfth wedding anniversary is coming up, and we were thinking about going on a cruise to celebrate. We’ve never been on a cruise and thought that it might be fun to try things out and be able to say that we’ve been on a cruise together! We were looking at costa rica expeditions and so far that one looks like the one that we want the most. Has anyone been on a cruise to Costa Rica? Is it a good choice? Are there more sites to see than other destinations?
