Default Kids - Free Cruising??

James has been drooling over a new P&O catalogue he sent away for. These British cruises sound wonderful, but we'll never be able to afford one. However, he noticed that P&O have at least 4 ships that offer kids-free cruising, that is, NO kids onboard, not kids cruise free!
He was wondering, if our North American cruise lines were to offer kids-free cruising, sort of like the Paradise's smoke-free policy, do you think alot of people would opt for this choice?

Since kids dont bother me in any way I would just go for the best deal I could get on a cruise..I know some people probably would go for it though, but like I said, Kids just dont bother me.

Celebrity cruise line offers several adults only cruises a year. Haven't done one yet myself, but I would if the opportunity arose.

I'm for that.
Most of the time kids that I encounter are well behaved.But then sometimes you want to throw them overboard.

i all for that, we did a land based adults only in 2002 and it was great, all geared towards adults and no little darlings screming around the pool. LOVED IT. i always try and cruise out of school break season, especially after the last one! Sheesh!

I've wondered about that, Donna. You hear big complaints about smoking, but somehow the non-smoking ship wasn't able to turn a profit.

I wonder if the kid-complainers would support a whole cruiseline?

I would definitely go for it. Didn't know Celebrity did kid-free cruises. Thanks for the info, Kuki. Like Lexxity, both Keith and I prefer to travel when kids are in school.
