    Three Experts on the Benefits of Family Travel

    With kids, especially young kids, you have to just go. That’s my biggest piece of advice to parents. Go. Don’t be worried about the other people on the plane and how they’ll feel about it.

It’s just like taking a child to a restaurant; it’s a parent’s responsibility. Kids are unpredictable. Sometimes things go wrong, and knowing how to deal with that is going to make everything better.

    9 Trips That Make a Positive Impact

    From Polynesia to the Poles, these restorative trips also support local communities.

    Kids get more than a sunny tropical escape during Paul Gauguin Cruises’ weeklong Tahiti and Society Islands journey. The round-trip sailing from Papeete aboard the 332-passenger Paul Gauguin includes snorkeling in Bora Bora and dolphin-watching in Moorea, but families with kids ages 7 to 17 can also participate in the Stewards of Nature program, developed with the Wildlife Conservation Society. Naturalists lead a schedule packed with hands-on activities focused on marine life and the efforts being taken to protect it. Educational art projects, scavenger hunts, and a visit to a sea turtle rehab facility round out the environmentally conscious – and unforgettable – trip.
