My DH and I are planning are next cruise. We would like to take one with the fewest amount of kids (under 16) on board. Our children are both in college and won't be coming with us. I do daycare in my home all year so being away from little kids is nice. What moderately priced cruise line, if any, has the fewest kids? What time of year would be best also? We have been on Carnival Fantasy but there were quite a few kids on it. Since this was our first cruise, we know not to go mid December again. We were thinking of either January 2006 or March 2006. Need help!!! Thanks!
I would avoid March. This is a spring break month for some areas.
Celebrity Century 1/09
Carnival Destiny 10/07
Carnival Destiny 9/06
Monarch of the Seas 3/06
Carnival Inspiration 8/05
Carnival Miracle 4/05
Carnival Inspiration 4/04
Sovereign of the Seas 4/03
avoid February and March - mid-winter school break in February - March - college spring break time. Avoid summer time and holidays.
Anytime in January is nice if you need to get away from the cold.
The longer the cruise, the less children aboard - try a 10 day instead of a 7.
Pick a smaller ship as opposed to the Mega sized ones.
Mainstream cruise lines that would be good for you (IMO) Princess, HAL, Celebrity.
As Kuki mentioned Celebrity offers an "Adults Only" cruise.
Try Celebrity, and I second going on a smaller ship, longer cruise. Holland America is also a good choice. I would avoid Carnival, not a bash, just they DO market themselves as a family/ kid friendly line, and when we cruised them we definately saw kids and some of the older kids( the college age ones) were the worst.
