Multigenerational Cruising Grows

Looking for a multigenerational vacation for your family? The answer just might be a cruise. The Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) resport on the growing popularity of cruises for multigenerational vacations. Why?

• Families can spend as much or as little time together as they want.
• Adults can enjoy time together thanks to babysitting services on virtually all CLIA member-line ships.
• Family members can select their own dining options. Grandparents might savor a quiet repast at an elegant supper club featuring menus that have been created by celebrity chefs. Parents can enjoy romantic dinners. Kids can nosh on pizza and pasta at a Lido buffet.
• Multigenerational family groups find specially designed adjoining cabins and suites that can accommodate up to 14 people aboard some CLIA-member ships.
• Families can divide members among stateroom and suite categories, based on their budgets.

"Today's cruise lines expertly accommodate vacationers' renewed focus on family in all its traditional and non-traditional forms," said Terry Dale, president and CEO of CLIA, the chief marketing organization for 19 premier cruise lines and nearly 17,000 North American travel agencies. "Because virtually everything is included in the cost of a cruise - accommodations, entertainment, children's activity programs and much, much more - family members need not worry about additional out-of-pocket expenses."
