she -

Much depends on time of year. If you go during Spring Break, Christmas time, or between June and August, there will be more families and/or college-age partiers on board. If you go during the typical school year, you will find fewer families.

In general, the cruiser on Carnival's average age is slightly younger than most other cruiselines, but on our recent cruise, we saw very few children and more senior citizens than young people our own age (23).

However, if you're looking for a good time, Carnival is great, as there are plenty of activities to enthrall anyone, regardless of age. Happy cruising!

For the reason stated above, I only travel when school is in session. Keeps the average age of the crowd older.

I can't remember if I read it in Porthole Magazine or another publication, but I believe the average Carnival cruiser is 45 years of age.

We're going on the Inspiration on Aug 22... That's right at the end of summer - I know many schools up in the north are back to school by then, but in some areas, they don't start back until after Labor Day. Any idea on the ages during that timeframe?

I've read some reviews that say the kids nearly over-run the ship - and others that say they are hardly noticeable. I'm just curious.

always remember that you are reading other people's perceptions, bias etc..I'm sure if a poster responded who had kids on the cruise they would say one thing..a poster that does not have kids would say another when asked the same question about kids on a cruise

as one of the above posters have stated..the newer carnival ships are so big with so many activities I think you'll be ok regardless of how many kids are on your ship

I don't know of any school in NJ that starts before Labor Day. Not sure where up north you are referring to. I've found it just the opposite. Schools in the south start sooner than the north.

I guess I'm thinking of Ohio. My daughter and son-in-law are teachers in Ohio - and school there starts up the week BEFORE Labor Day. It's been that way for quite a few years. Maybe THEY are the oddity.

As far as the kids on the ship - I don't think it will bother me one way or the other - even though mine are all grown, I"m accustomed to my grandchildren - it was just more curiousity than anything.
