Family Reunion Trip Ideas

  |   Family

Whether you have an enormous family, spread out across the world, or you’re a tight-knit bunch in the same city, a family reunion is always a great idea. Bringing the whole family together to spend time as a unit strengthens bonds and develops relationship between the people that matter the most.


But, there is a big difference between organising a get together in a local restaurant or even hiring a venue for the event and taking your family abroad. Nothing quite compares to exploring new cultures with your children, parents, cousins and more by your side.


Family Cruise Ideas


We understand the significance of family reunions and the importance of making sure they are perfect. We also know how stressful it can be planning a family reunion – your own family is often your most demanding customer! We have a number of cruise options that are ideal for families large and small. With great on-board facilities including pools, spas and lounges, our ships are havens of luxury for busy families that want to relax together.


Myanmar Tours


Exploring the Irrawaddy or Mekong River


Have you ever been interested in seeing Southeast Asia from a unique perspective? A Mekong River cruise will take you through some of the most remote parts of Vietnam and Cambodia. While an Irrawaddy River cruise sails through Myanmar. You will be able to explore areas that are virtually untouched by tourism and get an authentic taste of what life is like there. This is a great way to broaden the minds of your children as part of their cultural education.


Those who want to sail along the river in a good sized cruise ship where you will have plenty of other passengers to interact with as well as your family should consider The Strand cruise. This large boat has a capacity of 55 passengers and is equipped with a cocktail lounge, pool and spa. Naturally, meal times are lavish events with the smells of delicious Burmese cuisine filling the air. The chefs on board are experts in their crafts and are guaranteed to make your tastebuds swoon.


Once you are done with the water, you might want to think about some land-based excursions with your family. Trips to Angkor Wat in Cambodia or Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam are popular add-ons to a river cruise. 


Family Reunion Trip Ideas


Sailing the Galapagos Islands


For a family adventure you will never forget, head off from the coast of mainland Ecuador and visit the Galapagos Islands. A cruise through this iconic archipelago is perfect for adults, children and everything in between. Energetic youngsters can spend their days kayaking, snorkeling and hiking across the mesmerizing volcanic landscapes.


The main activity whilst on a cruise around the Galapagos is wildlife spotting. Tortoises, sea lions, iguanas, sharks, and all kinds of wonderful birds call these islands home. As you journey around the islands, there will be plenty of opportunities to stop, disembark and go searching for these magnificent creatures.


If you're worried about sea-sickness, a great alternative to a cruise is staying in a Galapagos Lodge. The Galapagos Safari Camp is a favorite among families. 


Amazon River Family Cruise


Floating Down the Amazon River


Perhaps the most exciting place on the planet, the Amazon Rainforest is the perfect destination for adventurous families. Surrounded by the cries of monkeys and macaws, your family will be able to spend time together and enrich their cultural understanding at the same time.


Families looking for an intimate experience should consider the Cattleya cruise boat. Carrying just 8 passengers respectively, it isn’t hard to fill and charter the vessel entirely with your own family and have the whole boat to yourselves. Both are kitted out with top of the range facilities as well as cabins with huge windows that look out on to the water. If you are looking for a larger boat, we recommend the Delfin III Amazon cruise


To really make the most of their time in South America, families on vacation can combine a river cruise with a land excursion. There are trips to Lima, Machu Picchu, and Iguazu Falls on offer as well as tours through national parks in search of wildlife.


A family reunion trip can be one of the most cherished memories you ever create so why not go all out?
