Depending on what hotel you staying at, there is a shuttle service but if it doesn’t come to your hotel, you may have to walk a couple blocks to get it.

Our specific cruise was steak and lobster. Didn't see any young children on board. They may have different cruises for couples versus families. I would call and check with them.
