Honeyboomer– have you ever heard of this before. Believe it or not, neither did My Vacation Lady until we saw an article from a travel writer, Robyn Ironside, from Australia.
Growth in couples who holiday without the kids has become so strong they’ve been given their own name — honeyboomers.
Not unlike “babymooners”, honeyboomers generally seek to enjoy time alone to work on their relationship while the kids stay at home with relatives.
So named by Carnival Cruise Lines after identifying 80 per cent growth in honeyboomers in the past four years, the trend is only expected to gain momentum.
A poll of 1000 Australian adults commissioned by Carnival, found three quarters missed having fun with their partner, and over a third said a child-free holiday would help them remember why they fell in love.
Whether or not we every had a name for this type of romance travel, My Vacation Lady has been helping our clients plan these types of vacations for years. We might have a client calling for help planning an anniversary vacation or a just, we need to get away without the kids vacation.
I planned Amy and Chris’ honeymoon back in 2005 and their boys are now 11 and 9. I’ve been helping them plan an adult only vacation since the boys were young. Sometimes, they’ll go alone and sometimes, have other couples go with them.
Justin called us for a surprise vacation for his wife, shortly after the birth of their first child. They needed some adult time while mom watched the baby.
Mike planned a surprise 30th birthday vacation for Denise shortly after their 2nd baby was born. They went away for 5 nights while the kids were in the care of the grandparents.
Regardless of what you call it, My Vacation Lady calls this time of travel- ROMANCE TRAVEL and this is one of our specialties.
Rather than spending hours in front of the computer researching hotels and destinations, let the romance travel professionals at My Vacation Lady help you rekindle the romance.
