When families plan a cruise, they most often think of the Caribbean and not much else. Yet there are cruises all around the world, and many of them can offer a nice change of pace from the traditional sand and surf vacations.
For example, travelers might want to consider booking a cruise through the Pacific. Many cruises leave from Japan and work their way down the coast, stopping in Shanghai, Singapore, Bangkok and Hong Kong.
Each of these countries has a rich culture and tradition that travelers can learn about at each stop along the way. Traveling between these countries can sometimes be a hassle, but cruises handle all the details. Passengers simply need to show up with their documents in order. Some cruises through this region also offer traditional Asian food on board - delicious sushi and chicken lo mein is always a great reason to travel.
Cruises are also a great way to stage a family reunion. While travelers may struggle with planning a trip for an entire extended family, the nature of an all-inclusive cruise means that everyone will be together in one spot. In addition, the variety of activities on cruises means that there will be something for everyone.
