We first tried cruising years ago with our children (now 29,28,28, 24) and they loved it then. It gave us an opportunity to see some different islands and then go back to the ones we liked for a land stay . For multi-gen families it offers something for everyone in terms of entertainment, shore excursions, food, etc. Have sailed the Caribbean, Med, Alaska, and European Rivers (Danube, Rhine, Seine). On the river we always added extra days on both ends so have visited Germany, France, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Hungary, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Portugal. We have traveled to Ireland two times on a fully escorted tour. Have been to Mexico and the Caribbean to all-inclusive resorts about 20 times. Most of the time we travel to see something new and historically interesting. Upcoming trips:
Celebrity Summit March 30, Costa Rica May 2019, Greece Aug/Sept. 2019, Germany, Switzerland, Austria & Oberramergau September 2020.... and I am sure it wont be long until I plan something else.
