On all the ships I have been on including S and M class ships it has been adult only but then we had excellent and warm weather.

I thought so too Don, but there are no signs posted saying "no one under 18 allowed in solaruim area"as there was on the Connie when we cruised her before or as on the Solstice last summer. It was not like "teen night" the Solstice had which was a special exception.

Maybe it is that particular Captain in charge who removed the signs or authorized their removal? Who knows? All I know is I wanted that little haven and was disappointed. I did notice the dailys said 3-5 was family time there-which I would not have minded at all a couple of hours a day.

Now if the signs were accidently removed-they should be returned and no one under 18 allowed should be enforced outside of family time from 3 to 5 pm.

You see, we paid $1400 total including taxes for this 4 day cruise-but if it is no better than the NCL Sky- which cost us $1000 for 2 us including taxes for a balcony room-why bother with the Connie? Not that I want to go back on the Sky either.

I would rather rent a condo on the beach for a long weekend to be honest and save doing cruises for something better which is what I will do-unless we doing a 5 day on RCI Jewel of the Seas. We did enjoy that cruise.
Equal opportunity cruiser since 1998-4 Carnival, 4 RCI, 3 HAL, 3 Princess, 5 Celebrity, 3 NCL, 1 Disney

I have now achieved-
146 days total
