AllThingsCruise Partners With Eileen Ogintz of Taking the Kids
Premier Cruise Information Site Offers Expert Advice On Planning Fantastic Family Vacations
AllThingsCruise.com, the premier resource website for cruise enthusiasts, is pleased to announce that they have partnered with nationally syndicated columnist and family travel expert Eileen Ogintz, the creator of Taking The Kids.com Ogintz will be contributing content and will blog about cruising with families on the site.
“Taking the Kids is all about family travel”, says AllThingsCruise Editor-At-Large Heidi Allison, “and the information Eileen provides will be an incredibly valuable tool for our readers who want to get the best, most cost-effective family vacation possible.”
Ogintz possesses over 20 years of experience as a journalist tracking travel trends, and is a mother who has traveled with her three kids (and other family members) across the U.S., and to the Caribbean, Europe and beyond. She is considered a leading national expert on family travel and is often quoted in major publications such as USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times, as well as parenting and women’s magazines on family travel. She has appeared on national and local TV talking about family travel and often speaks around the country on the subject, suggesting how travel companies can better meet the needs of 21st century traveling families.
“There are currently over 1,000,000 children per year under the age of 18 cruising on the various lines”, says Ogintz. “Families are clearly an ever-growing demographic, and the key to a successful cruise is choosing the right trip, with the right line. You don’t want to get on board with a three year old, only to find that their children’s programs start at age four!”
