Do you want to plan and book a family vacation your kids will love? Maybe you want to invite the grandparents along? Or your grandchildren? If you are looking for the perfect multigenerational vacation, I have the solution! I recommend booking a river cruise. These cruises are perfect for kids of all ages. Older adults enjoy the activities on and off the ships too. I have personally been on a few river cruises with my kids. And let me tell you, they had an amazing time and told me they would be more than willing to go on more of these types of family vacations. Let me share a few more reasons why river cruises are perfect for multigenerational vacations.
Some of the major cruise lines have ships that are the size of small cities. A river cruise ship isn’t as big. Don’t worry, they are big enough to give you the space you need. You just won’t need to walk miles to reach the area where an activity is being held.
These smaller ships are perfect for older adults who may not want to walk too far when on board. Especially when they are trying to find the rest of their family. Or just grab a bite to eat.
Speaking of food, everything you eat on the ship is included in the cost of your river cruise. There are plenty of menu options to choose from. Even the pickiest of eaters will find something they like to eat when they are hungry.
This will make mealtime a breeze when traveling with extended family.
The entire family will love spending time together learning new things. On a river cruise, you can all attend the same programs or activities. This will allow you all to learn new things and then discuss what you learned later.
As much as you all may love each other, time apart is always good while on a family vacation. Thankfully, most river cruise lines offer activities for all age groups. The kids may want to participate in one activity, while you head over to another area of the ship to do something else. Your parents may be interested in a different activity or taking a nap and getting a little downtime.
River cruise lines understand that while families want to travel together, they don’t always want to be in the same room. They created connecting staterooms and suites for this purpose. You can easily book connecting rooms, so the kids have their own space, and you have yours. Suites will serve the same purpose.
Grandparents can have their own stateroom or choose to be in a connecting room.
Many of the river cruise ships have a movie theater, as well as an area filled with board games. Add in karaoke nights, activity nights, and themed nights, and no one in your family will be bored. Your kids may even be able to sign up for cooking classes and workshops.
These are the main reasons why a river cruise is perfect for multigenerational vacations. You will find many other benefits in my post about taking a Christmas Market river cruise as a family. I am more than willing to share my experiences with you as well, when we start discussing and planning your next family vacation via river cruise.
