Default Spring Break

Does anyone know the date this year (2005) for spring break. I'm getting ready to book the Costa Cruise in March or April, and it occurs to me that I really don't want to be on a cruise with 10,000 teeny boppers. HELP.

Hopefully more people will post with their school break schedule! Good luck!

Spring break is really a moving target. I am a school teacher and our spring break this year is 4-2 through 4-10. In Oregon, their spring break is two weeks prior. In general, I would say that any time from President's Day weekend through mid-April you are quite likely to see more kids than normal aboard ships.

You may wish to choose a line like Princess that limits the numbers of kids aboard each ship or choose a line like H.A.L. where the crowd is a bit more mature in many ways. I would definately avoid Carnival, NCL, and RCI if you don't wish to see quite a few kids.

The good news is that most if not all of the cruise lines do a very good job of keeping kids busy with fun and interesting activities. We always cruise during peak vacation times and have never been overly annoyed by children. (Knock on wood!)

In NH it's the last week in April and in MA and ME its the third week in April. NH also has the last week in February and MA and ME are the third week in February. UNH is usually around the middle of March. There was a thread a while back and a lot of people from all over listed their spring breaks. If you try a search you may be able to find it.

Here in Montreal, our "March Break" is the first week of March this year, and you can be assured, there will be plenty of winter-weary families headed for either Florida or for a cruise. Beware!

Hey Donna.... I noticed that you called it "March Break"....

The word "Spring" doesn't come easily to us, huh? Not until mid-May.


Just 1 month to go until the "Cruise Cynic Mystery Cruise" ... January 2008
