Default Is May a busy time for cruise

We are sailing on the Paradise the 23rd of May and wonder how crowded it will be.

Any advice is welcome!

One way or another most cruises sail pretty much full these days. You will likely find less children on the ship than you might when school is out.

We cruised 2 years ago during that week and the ship had 3 high schools having their senior trip on board. It wasn't bad at all though.

I think it's amazing how infrequently large groups kids are seen during a cruise!

We're cruising this coming May 15th on the Sensation and I was quite curious as to why the price of that particular cruise seems so much lower than the same cruises prior and afterwards. The May 29th departure is 50% more. in price.

By the end of May, schools are letting out for summer and families are taking vacations. It is also Memorial Day weekend, so the price would be higher. The cruise lines sock it to people who are beginning the summer travel (peak) season.

We are sailing on May 8th, on the Holiday, out of N.O. & we still got the reduced rate, I don't think the price goes up till the end of May.
My 2 cents worth~
Happy Cruising!

I think the early part of May would not be too busy because the kids are in school but as you get toward the end of school starts getting out so that is the reason I booked my cruise on May 9 on the Conquest hopefully there will be less school age children.
