About Our Family Research


New trends
Agents point out various new trends in the family reunion arena. Not only has the number of requests for family reunion travel increased, agents also notice a difference in the type of activities families are looking for. Cruising, in particular, is increasingly popular among family reunion travelers. Many respondents point at grandparents as the initiating party for planning a reunion. A selection of the answers follows:

Young people looking for their family roots
Grandparents taking grandchildren on trips to celebrate birthdays
Family members trying to reconnect with cousins etc
Grandparents organizing trip for family including their grown children and their individual families
Weddings combining with family reunions
Reunions tend to be centered around a milestone event - for example, 50th wedding anniversary for parents
People prefer to spend time together in a relaxed atmosphere instead of hectic vacations like tours to different places with scheduled itineraries
More families traveling together rather than just a picnic somewhere
Customers want the most bang for their buck...hence the popularity of all inclusives
