Show your kids the world. Unpack once.
Once upon a time, cruising was reserved for the very wealthy.
These days, cruise ships have become destinations of their own with lovely accommodations, top-notch dining, and activities for the whole family.
Throw in a few exotic ports of call, and the question becomes: is there a better family vacation?

This way, everyone’s interests are satisfied and their sanity preserved.

About Your Host
Aaron Schlein visited 12 countries on four continents before his 18th birthday—all thanks to the generosity of his grandmother. The impact of those trips convinced him that travel is an essential part of life.

Aaron is the founder of Dramatic Media LLC—a multi-media company that promotes the power of travel through video, audio, photo, and written content.
Aaron lives in Sacramento, California with his wife and two children (who are growing up too fast!)
