I want to take my single daughter on a criuse for her Phd grad present. She is 28 and loves lots of activity and dancing. We want to go together but I want the cruise tailored more to her than to me. She would like to meet single people but obviously not spring fling week types. More professional and mature and fun.
Can you recommend a cruise for us. We live on the East coast. Where do you suggest I go to find out the demographics of the cruises?
Help! She graduates in May.

I believe for a younger demographic and a more active cruise I would suggest Royal Caribbean's Allure or Oasis of the Seas. These sail out of Florida. Also, Carnival's eastern or western itineraries out of Miami would be a good choice.
Take care and congratulations to your daughter's doctorate.

what a wonderful gift. Congrats to your daughter. I agree with Mike that a Royal Caribbean cruise out of Florida would probably be your best bet, lots and lots of activites and stuff to do on board, either the Freedom Class ships or the huge ships Allure or Oasis
I sailed Allure in Jan. There is plenty of activity and dancing on this ship. Either Allure or Oasis would be a good choice. Talk to your local travel agent or call Royal Caribbean direct. Congrats to you and your daughter; you must be a proud mama..

Wait a sec everyone, did the OP state that her daughter is into going on a floating shopping mall, ice skating, rock climbing, a high diving show (go see Cirque do Soleil O if you want to see an amazing water based show).
Why not find out from the OP what her daughters activity level will be AND her financial status--meaning does she want to spent close to DOUBLE and go on the Monster Shopping Malls of the Sea or spend less and go a NCL or Carnival ship out of Miami or FLL? There is only a 30-40 minute drive between the two ports, so it isn't like going on a ship in another port city/state.....
Anytime anyone is not sure about what they should book you need to find out what do THEY want to do and not just immediately suggest RCI's two most expensive monster ships. No, for all we know the OP's daughter just wants to meet, mingle, and sit in the sun and doesn't give a damn about a rock climbing wall, a carousel on a ship, ice skating on a ship, flowrider on a ship (Carnival has one at Grand Turk...).
I think the OP needs to tell us more so a reasonable suggestion can be made.
