There is nothing like experiencing nature and different cultures through the eyes of children. You'll never forget a trip to the South Pacific with your kids, and Paul Gauguin Cruises offers the Ambassadors of the Environment program that is tailored specifically for families.
Consult the line's cruise calendar, and pay special attention to summer and holiday sailings during which this program is offered for children, ages 9 to 17. Created in partnership with Jean-Michel Cousteau -- son of Jacques Cousteau -- and the Ocean Futures Society, the program entertains and educates through a series of eco-excursions. Parents and their kids will snorkel -- with both day and night outings -- and hike across the islands. Although the ship does not have dedicated children's facilities or staff, Les Gauguines offer daytime storytelling and craft activities throughout the cruise to keep children entertained.
Editor's note: No children's services are offered on itineraries that don't include the Ambassadors of the Environment program.
