I am wondering which line/ship might be the sweet spot for a multi-gen cruise (our 12 & 14 yr olds, plus my parents... older but not infirm). I am looking for a cruise for the summer of 2018, in the eastern Med, including Italy and Greece.
I am not interested in ships of thousands of people, which seems to eliminate many of the teen ship recommendations. My husband and I prefer a Seabourn-type experience (mostly inclusive, not crowded, not "glitzy"). I looked at the Seabourn itineraries, but want to make sure I am looking at all the options.
We haven't traveled with our kids on cruises (they are well traveled to luxury hotels, cities, etc.). I'm not even sure how our family would be accommodated on a cruise in terms of rooms. Connecting? Are there suites on luxury ships that accommodate 4 people?
Kids club is not mandatory, but teen activities might be interesting. I *love* Disney, but we are at Disneyland often enough so that I prefer to keep our Disney experience at the parks. The focus of this cruise would be on the ports, and spending time as a family.
My kids did go on an Alaska cruise (Princess) with my parents, and they had a great time. I just don't think I would like being on a big ship.
Any advice is appreciated,
