A few years ago, I had the pleasure of going on a multi-generational family cruise vacation to Mexico. Our group was my parents and sister, grandparents, an aunt and uncle, and their two young kids. Quite the crew.

It ended up being so much fun, and I cherish those memories. Cruises are great for that, because everyone had something to do, whether it was my Dad enjoying the buffet, my grandma at the casino or my little cousins playing at the kids' center.

Planning a trip for such a large and diverse group can be tricky though, even for the most seasoned of travelers. I found this article by Nancy Schretter, Editor of familytravelnetwork.com:12 Tips for Multigenerational Family Vacations. They're super insightful and worth a read as you plan your next vacation. Here's an excerpt:

10. Set a comfortable pace: Keep in mind each family member's individual preferences for waking hours, activity schedules, dress, dining options, nightlife, and needs for sleep and plan accordingly. Respect your differences and be willing to bend the rules a bit if necessary. Letting teens sleep in for an hour might make all the difference in having a great time on a multigenerational family vacation.

And remember! The easiest way to save yourself some stress on your next trip is to book through Let's Take the Kids Travel Agency. Our experienced consultants can take care of all your travel needs.
