Ask a group of millennials for their opinions on cruises as viable vacation options, and you might be met with puzzled glares. But with each year comes a new cruise giant that formulated an itinerary, onboard activities and a marketing plan to cater to the next generation with disposable income.
One of the latest cruise companies to devise such journeys is Royal Caribbean with its Symphony of the Seas. The ship first took to the seas in November 2018, offering thrilling onboard action for both millennials and their children, such as glow-in-the-dark laser tag, a surfing simulator, an ice-skating rink, a teen disco and a club with a DJ for the older crowd.
Celebrity Cruises launched its Edge ship in early winter 2018, a 16-deck monstrosity that attempts to prove to millennials cruising can be elegant instead of flashy and cheesy. Guests can control their cabin doors, operate in-room lighting and book onboard activities using the mobile app, and a three-level space called Eden is a sun lounge by day and performance venue by night.
Cruises may still be gaining traction among millennials, but cruise companies show no signs of slowing down in crafting their themes to the growing group of travelers.

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella (or “Old City”) is often packed with tourists who wander up and down Las Ramblas spending way too many euros on overpriced paella and sangria. But the border neighborhood of El Raval is just a few steps from the bustle, but worlds away from the exorbitant prices.
