Younger? I saw a LOT of people on Epic inthe late 20s to lower 40s, especially in the Howl at the Moon shows. They were having a great time, really partying and quite friendly.
I do think there is a whole younger generation of cruiser out there, but mostly on shorter trips. The may splurge for a 7-day cruise once in awhile.
Paul, I haven't read in the WSJ were the cruiselines are losing money. If the competition can do it that NCL can do it or belly up.
Actually, NCL is the only cruise line actually losing money in recent quarters, but they have not yet announced a quarter with Epic sailings included. It should be interesting to see.
