Have you started thinking about this summer’s family vacation yet?  Families really can have it all; well-designed, child friendly programs and amenities, paired with adult dining, accommodation and entertainment options… all in one place.  That’s the beauty of today’s cruise experience.

In fact, multi-generational- trips (with kids, parents, and grandparents) are becoming increasingly popular because of the variety of activities and amenities available on today’s ships.  With something for everyone, families can participate in activities together- but aren’t obligated to “stay the course” together for an entire vacation.

Single or childless adults who want to be part of a multigenerational cruise, but really want to focus on relaxation and adult activities have adults-only ” options, like Princess Cruises The Sanctuary.

Princess has some wonderful destinations for families, as well- here are some great (and budget friendly) options:
