We have published some recent posts about multigenerational cruising, and also posts exploring international cruise lines.  The slate of Norwegian cruises discussed in the article below hits both themes.  Although we did not mention Norwegian Cruise Line in our list of international cruise lines to check out, this particular China-based Norwegian ship fields a Chinese speaking crew.  So this could certainly provide more of an immersive experience than many cruises out of Hong Kong.

As an added bonus for the adventurous, the Norwegian Joy features a full-fledge go-kart track!
