Our one longer cruise (15 days, Hawaii and back) was a more sedate atmospere with a notably older crowd than I was accustomed too on shorter outings. That was fine by me, cuz my wife is good company, and I enjoy a good read by the pool. It was a bit odd to only have 5 children on the entire ship, though. Can't imagine it was much fun for their age group. Heck, at 50-ish, my wife and I were yougsters on that cruise.

Night life was much calmer, often non-existent, but there were plenty of shows and activities to keep us busy. One other demographic I did not expect was the large number of British/European cruisers on the ship. Made for some interesting conversations, not just the same talk with the mostly local Texas crowds I encounter out of my 'home port' of Galveston.

If I were you, I'd expect it to be a bit different, but that's not always a bad thing...
