- How to enter and cite the source, and
- How to include the "trip" in the people's narrative.
Hope this gives you ideas,

Title - title of list, including port and time period if applicable
Record type - "arrival" or "departure"
Agency - name of archives
Date - date of arrival or departure
Record Number - include "Arrival No." or "Departure No."
Note that I disagree with Ancestry's recommended format and with Michael that Ancestry is the repository. In my view, Ancestry is a glorified copy machine, providing a copy of record from the archives where the original resides. As such, they merit nothing more than a mention in the Comments field: "image found on Ancestry.com"
But don't actually enter the archives as a repository in this Source Type, but in the Agency element in the Source Definition - either method works.
I agree with Michael that probably the best way to enter a trip like this is in an Anecdote or Note Tag. If this were a case of the family immigrating instead of on a vacation trip, I'd enter it in an Immigration Tag.

Both you and Michael offered good ideas. I like your source option and that it would be used, in my case, as an anecdote tag. Thanks for taking the time to answer the question.
