Family holiday suggestions

Hi everyone, I'm in a great but difficult position. My parents have just informed us that they are taking myself, my wife, our 2 teenage boys, my brother, his wife and 2 kids, on a holiday.
Obviously I suggested a Live aboard charter :-)
My brothers family loves tours, culture and structured events, we just love to be in or on the ocean. My parents just want to spend time with us, and a little pampering.
You all have experience with wide ranges of the world, what recommendations do you have? and I'm only suggesting ocean access destinations to my parents, gotta look after myself right.
My wife really likes the idea of Greece, how's the political climate doing? And most likely this will be happening around March, so what's the weather like?
I'm leaning towards south Pacific, but seems like a long haul for a weeks stay.
And yes I know nobody has any sympathy for my first world problem, but I would appreciate any feedback.

Re: Family holiday suggestions

How flexible are you regarding your style of live aboard? We have some similar issues and have an upcoming trip that looks like a good compromise: a canal boat rental in Europe.

A nice relaxing cruise for some of us, with enough other activities nearby to save my brother-in-law from going stir crazy.
