The New York Times recently published an article featuring Cruise Planners CEO and founder, Michelle Fee discussing “skip-gens,” a popular travel trend where grandparents take the grandchildren on vacation without the parents in tow. Michelle also noted cruise lines are expanding their travel services for families with special needs, such as Royal Caribbean International’s dedicated services for autistic children.
