Filed in Boomer, Empty Nesters, Guest Blog, Travel by on November 21, 2016 10 Comments

When going on a holiday with different generations of your family it can be hard to find a one size fits all destination. Young children want exciting thrills and spills, teenagers love activities and opportunities to escape their parents by making new friends, parents want a little bit of relaxation time and the older generation a bit of culture seeking. The best way to accommodate all of these different interests is with a family friendly cruise from the Bolsover Cruise Club. Here are the best cruise trips for multigenerational holidays:

Cruising the Med with the Norwegian Cruise Line is ideal for a multi-generational holiday. With plenty of cultural ports and interesting cities on the agenda, the range of different types of stops includes cool cities like Barcelona to pretty Greek Islands and plenty of days at sea for sunbathing and making friends on deck. From evening magic shows to fine dining opportunities, the amount of variety on board means there is something that all different generations will enjoy plus plenty of activities for all ages to enjoy together.

A cruise ship that’s ideal for those families who’ve had to drag the teenagers along with them. Carnival cruises offers night time events for 15-17 year olds and teenagers only excursions so you can spend some time apart whilst on holiday, then it will be so much more fun meeting up again to catch up on what you’ve both been up to. This gives adults some much welcomed relaxation time to do some sunbathing or go visit a historical museum without the ‘I’m bored’ chorus haunting their holiday.

Although Disney cruises are specifically geared up for children, this makes them ideal for families as there’s plenty of time for adults to catch a break and enjoy themselves too. The entertainment on an evening is of a really high standard and ideal for all the family to enjoy together and the amount of different day time activities to choose from means that there are options for all the family to do something with their day which they enjoy.

Generally, use your common sense when looking for a cruise which will appeal to all the generations. Luxury cruising tends to cater more towards adults and couples whereas some liners calling at the more cultural hot spots tend to be a little boring for children, so it’s all about checking out the facilities on board and making sure that there is something for everyone!
