Tuesday, 7 February 2023
Did you know that we offer a selection of multi-generational cruises perfect for families who want to go together? From little ones enjoying their first holiday and parents looking for a school-holiday getaway to grandparents who wish to share their love of cruising with their family, discover the benefits of a multi-generational cruise for every generation.
The benefits of a multi-generational cruise for grandparents
- You can enjoy the familiarity of a holiday you know
- You can make the most of low-stress travel
- You can share your passion with your family
- You can break off when you need independence
You can enjoy the familiarity of a holiday you know
It can often be that our grandchildren dictate a lot of our activities. Weekends are spent sipping coffees in soft play centres, and film nights call for cartoons rather than blockbusters, but a multi-generational cruise means you don’t need to compromise. You’ll be able to enjoy a holiday you love that feels familiar to you, whilst knowing your family will have a fantastic time also.
You can make the most of low-stress travel
Let’s be honest; even without the grandkids in tow, travel can be stressful. Especially if you want to visit more than one destination, you’ve got airports to contend with, checking into hotels, packing and unpacking, and weight restrictions; it can be a real hassle. However, a cruise holiday offers low-stress travel. If you’re an experienced cruiser, you’ll already know how easy a cruise holiday is, and when there are little ones to think about, that’s something that’ll make the whole trip feel better from the get-go.

You can share your passion with your family
If you’re a passionate cruiser, going away with your family on a multi-generational cruise is a great way to share your passion with your loved ones. Whether they’ve never considered a cruise holiday or just haven’t found the right one, think of a multi-generational as a way for them to dip their toes into cruising. You’ll be able to show them the ropes, help them get their bearings, introduce them to some great cruise traditions, and convert them to cruising.
You can break off when you need independence
It’s only natural that you’ll want some time to yourself whilst on holiday to relax and unwind, and cruising allows you to do that. Whether it’s opting to explore a port separately from your children and grandchildren to see different attractions or spending an evening on board enjoying speciality restaurants and a show for a date night, you’ll be able to break off easily and come back together after you’ve had some R&R.
The benefits of a multi-generation cruise for parents
- You can make the most of our great deals
- You’ll be able to enjoy a range of excellent dining
- You can see multiple destinations and only unpack once
- You won’t need to take your children out of school
You can make the most of our great deals
For our multigenerational cruises in 2024, you’ll be able to take advantage of our children’s price deal, where kids sail for only £99. With your entertainment and meals included in the price and the ability to opt for the Adventurers Drink Package for Children, you’ll be spending less than you thought for a fantastic holiday. What’s more, we often have a great range of cruise deals and offers that mean you can save money on your trip also.
You’ll be able to enjoy a range of excellent dining
Do you want to be able to enjoy delicious meals whilst your little ones can enjoy their favourites? With a cruise, you’ll have access to a wide range of brilliant dining options perfectly suited to cater for all of the family. Whether you try one of our speciality dining restaurants for a special treat or take a trip to Borough Market and build your own meal, you don’t need to worry about everyone being able to eat what they want.
You can see multiple destinations and only unpack once
Routine is essential for children of all ages, and having to unpack and pack up again, move between destinations and deal with transfers and flights isn’t something convenient when you have little ones in tow. But, when you cruise, you’ll be moving between destinations constantly, unlocking new adventures and experiences without having to deal with repacking and unpacking multiple times or additional travel stress.
You won’t need to take your children out of school
Taking your little ones out of school during term time isn’t something we want to do, but it can be hard to find affordable holidays that take place during the holidays. We know that this is a choice parents face, and so we have ensured that all of our multi-generational cruises take place during school holidays to make it easier to organise a trip for you and your family.
The benefits of a multi-generational cruise for children
- They’ll be able to enjoy a unique kind of holiday
- They’ll have the chance to see more of the world
- They’ll be able to build precious memories with family
- They’ll be able to enjoy holiday friendships
They’ll be able to make the most of the onboard entertainment
Whilst our cruise ships are built with adults in mind, we put on a wealth of entertainment and activities perfect for little hands and young minds during our multi-generational cruises. They’ll be able to enjoy activities such as cupcake decorating, line dancing and table tennis tournaments.
They’ll have the chance to see more of the world
One of the primary reasons for travel is to open ourselves up to more of the world. Whether it’s different cultures and communities far-flung or seeing more of the world on our doorstep, a cruise can offer an excellent chance for children to expand their horizons. Our multi-generational cruises will let you unlock a series of destinations for your little ones that can help them learn more about the world and, in turn, themselves. Why not use a cruise as an educational experience and ask them to write down facts they learn about new places? They could even put together a presentation for their classmates when they get back to share all about their holiday!
They’ll be able to build precious memories with family
Holidays can be incredibly pivotal moments in our lives and help us build lasting memories and connections to people and locations worldwide. By enjoying a multi-generational cruise, you’ll all make precious memories of time spent exploring the world and laughing together. Spend your holiday taking holiday snaps you’ll fawn over for years to come, buying souvenirs and growing closer as a family.
They’ll be able to enjoy holiday friendships
There is something exceptional about the holiday friendships we make as children, and cruising offers the perfect chance for children to meet new people. With the knowledge that you’ll become a travelling community for the duration of your trip, your children will be able to make friendships and bonds and come together with their new companions daily whilst away. They can take part in onboard activities, recount tales of their days at shore and even enjoy their meals together as you look on with pride.
From multi-generational cruises to themed cruises, we’ve got some wonderful options for those who want to experience something different on their travels. Whether you opt for a family cruise with your loved ones or a solo adventure where you can meet new friends, you’ll find an Ambassador holiday to suit you.
