River Ambassador for Families
There are no special facilities for kids but families are welcome; our cruise was, in fact, designated a family special, with separate family excursions, a kids' menu and a Wii room, but River Ambassador won't necessarily be the ship allocated for these itineraries in future. Although the family departures were new when we sailed, the crew coped brilliantly, interacting with the kids, the galley laying on special menus and the cruise manager even conducting a ‘behind the scenes' tour, with no adults allowed. For multi-generational families, or those seeking a cultural experience geared to all ages, these departures are highly recommended.
But kids who need a lot of entertainment and can't sit still through dinner might be better suited to a cruise on a large, ocean-going ship.
