Multi-generational travel for families is in vogue, with luxury cruises popularly booked by families over the previous three years. Cruise lines worked fast to cater to this increasing travelers building more family suites and connecting rooms. Luxury markets are even offering programs designed for children to complete a multi-generational travel by seas.
Reasons why multi-generational travel for families are becoming trendy:
Retired great grandparents /grandparents have available disposable financial earnings.
They are still active and healthy to enjoy going places.
Couples with age ranges between 30 to 40 years, with young children and working hard are prepared to splurge their hard-earned income on leisurely travels and recreational activities. What's more, once the cruise docks, say in New Orleans, the family can arrange for tours in New Orleans that would serve to make their vacation more worthwhile.
A perfect family cruising to enjoy a holiday in the high seas

The bargain buy of 2014 is a Caribbean cruise. Some cruises like the Princess, MSC Cruises, Norwegian, and Royal Caribbean have new ships now competing with the many older ships plying this sea. Watch out for big discounts.
Why not a cruise on an older ship?

Booking and paying the deposit at least six months early can even make you avail of lower fares and other amenities like free airfare, stateroom upgrade or generous onboard credits and more.
Prefer a shorter cruise
The standard is a seven-night cruise but you can find two to six nights. Fewer nights mean lower prices which can be the right one if the family needs to be back in time or strapped of cash.
Going on excursions
Every port call allows guests to go on organized outing. Do comparison between cruise line rate and local tour operators. If you opt to go with the local, make sure to make it before the cruise sail off because it won't wait.
