For families looking for an alternative to the traditional family reunion, taking a cruise is a great way to make a splash with everyone. Here are seven reasons why.

1. Superior Value - The all-inclusive pricing of a cruise vacation includes a family's accommodations, meals, 24- hour room service, most onboard activities and top entertainment. Groups often receive special amenities. Cruise ships offer families a variety of staterooms to fit any budget and travel needs.

2. Convenient Departure Points - Traveling to board a cruise ship has never been easier. Ships depart from more than 20 ports throughout North America.

3. No Worries - There is no cooking or cleaning to worry about - just relaxation. Once everyone's bags are unpacked, the ship's crew does the rest.

4. Floating Fun - There is never a dull moment on a modern cruise ship. Guests enjoy swimming pools and water slides, rock climbing walls, surf riders, ice-skating rinks, roller blade tracks, spa services, kids programs, nightclubs, gambling, fitness centers, shopping, dining, libraries, Internet and video arcades, enrichment seminars and guest lecturers, yoga and plenty more.

5. Food Galore - There are more food and dining choices on cruise ships than ever before, catering to people of all ages and tastes. Cruise ships still have their formal dining rooms, but most also feature more casual restaurants, grills and poolside dining options - plus 24/7 room service.

6. Spa Sensations - Men and women who want to be truly pampered are invited to enjoy an incredible spa experiences.

7. Children's Programs - For parents who may want a break from their children - and vice versa - most of today's cruise ships offer plenty of structured and supervised recreational programs for kids ages 3 to 17. In addition, special lounges and nightclubs for tweens and teens abound for the younger generations of families to hang out in supervised settings - no parents allowed.

So instead of dreading the task of planning your family reunion, pick a low-stress cruise and have the family vacation of a lifetime. See CruiseCompete's Group Cruises Family Reunion section for more information or get help planning your cruise.
