Multi-Generational Cruising - Part 2

"We see many spread out families, who live in many different cities or even countries, joining up and reuniting on a cruise," says Mimi Weisband of Crystal Cruises. Though you wouldn't necessarily think of Crystal as a family cruise line, this ultra-luxury line has recently introduced "Crystal Getaway," itineraries that run typically between 5-7 days (up to 11 days max) and are drawing passengers that are, on average, 10 years younger than the typical Crystal Cruises passenger. Global families fit nicely into this cross-section, especially because no matter how great any family vacation is, everyone's typically ready for it to end after about a week.
