Any ideas for a group/family vacation?

We?re trying to plan a trip for me & my husband, my parents & my brother, his wife & their (will be 2 ?  yr old when we go) daughter.


We had originally talked about renting a house boat on Lake Powell but we?re just not convinced it?s worth the money.  I?ve run the numbers & it would be about $3k/couple for 4 days/3 nights (that number includes everything, flights, rental car, the extra ?fun? boat, food, etc)  It just seems like a lot of money for such a short vacation.


I?ve been playing around with the idea of a cruise since that has something for everything. 
Does anyone have a cruise they?d recommend (b/c of the destinations &/or excursions that were offered). 

Or does anyone have any  ideas? We?re looking for something more exciting than say... renting a beach house & just sitting around for a week?


Re: Any ideas for a group/family vacation?

  • Not sure where you are but we are driving distance to TN so H and I, along with 3 other couples rented a cabin in the mountains in the Gatlinburg area.  Although we rented a cabin, we will not be sitting around much.  We will hike in the state par (to waterfalls), white water raft, possibly go to a waterpark and checkout both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg town areas.  Probably do some goofy stuff like go carts and mini golf.

    A cruise sounds fun though!  My H wont do one, ever :(

  • We're in Dallas.
    We LOVE hiking but our family doesn't. :(  Thanks for the idea though.  Maybe we'll do it ourselves sometime!

    We did a western Caribbean cruise on Royal Caribbean over spring break with family and had a blast. We stopped at Cozumel (did a day at a beach), Grand Cayman (swam with stingrays) and Jamaica (took it easy after two action packed days). Kids were aged 2-13 years old and everyone had a good time. We cruised from New Orleans and I know they also cruise from Galveston.
