Working with Grandparents.com, we're looking forward to illustrating the very special experience that grandparents and their grandkids - and maybe a parent or two - can share only aboard ship.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) May 7, 2008
The family chosen to appear in the series' debut episode will spend eight all-expenses-paid days aboard a Regent Seven Seas cruise from Alaska to Vancouver, B.C., aboard Seven Seas Mariner. Grandparents.com's cameras will roll and capture what promises to be an intergenerational vacation of a lifetime.
From nearly endless Alaskan summer days spent at breathtaking ports of call like Skakway and Sitka, to indelibly memorable evenings aboard ship, "Grandest Adventures" aims to vividly illustrate the special bond that only grandparents and their grandchildren share, and capture how today's grandparents are more deeply involved, more plugged-in participants in their grandkids' lives.
"Grandest Adventures is both must-see content for our site, and one of the best ways we could imagine to showcase what grandparents, and grandparenting today are all about," said Jerry Shereshewsky, CEO, Grandparents.com. "The can't-miss message will be that grand adventures are shared every day, everywhere, among grandparents and their grandkids."
"Multigenerational vacationing is a growing trend, and one that looks here to stay," said Tom Grasse, Director of E-Business Development, Regent Seven Seas Cruises. "Working with Grandparents.com, we're looking forward to illustrating the very special experience that grandparents and their grandkids - and maybe a parent or two - can share only aboard ship."
To be eligible, families must include at least one grandparent and grandchild who will make the voyage, joined by as many as four additional family members, for a cruise leaving Seward, Alaska on August 27, 2008 and concluding in Vancouver, B.C. on September 3, 2008.
