Bachelor's Party?
 
I am planning a bachelor's party for my buddy and was wondering if a cruise ship was a good idea. I was thinking a 4 day trip to Ensenada from Long Beach on the Carnival Paradise.

I've never been on a cruise before so I have no idea what to expect. There would probably be about 8 of us. We are all in our late 20s and mostly single.

I'd imagine the guys would like to be spending their time boozing and partying so I'm not sure a cruise ship is the best place for those types of shenanigans.

Also, what is the demographic for these types of cruises? Are there any single young people or is it mostly families?

The 3 and 4 day cruises attract a younger demographic and can be bit more "active".

It really depends on what type of bachelor party you want. A cruise could be a good choice if you want to have some drinks, dance in the discos and just enjoy the groom's last few nights of freedom. However, the wild party type of bachelor party won't go over too well on a cruise ship. Over partying can result in security becoming involved and even having to leave the ship.

Also, with the enhancements in security it is getting harder and harder to get the donkey on board. :D

Take care and congrats to your buddy.

I wouldn't worry about it. The people make the party not the place. Girls will be plenty, drinks will be strong, and that bachelor will have a great time. I'm crazy in a harmless but hilarious way and if the bachelor has friends like me (I'm betting he does) the cruise will be amazing.:shock:

I've been on several cruises and I think they are all pretty laid back for a bachelor party. I would at least suggest a specialty cruise with bands or specific a specific type of music that you enjoy. I recently took a "groove cruise" which is probably on the extreme side of the party cruises and had a blast (it's all techno though). The company that offers these is whey travel and each cruise line has their own version (although I doubt the groove cruise could be beat). Good luck!

Josquin,
Just do what you enjoy whether it is bowling, rock climbing, poetry reading or a massive video game-a-thon. Good luck.
