Hey guys, my wife and I want to go on a cruise to celebrate our 5th year anniversary. We are both 27 years old.. We're looking for a cruise line with more of a younger crowd/younger couples and as few children as possible. We're both pretty active, so we'd like a cruise line to have a good amount of activities, we enjoy partying every now and then, but also want to be able to detach,relax, and enjoy each others company as well. Any suggestions? It would be very much appreciated. We're looking to go during the month of March and a 6-8 day cruise would be the duration of time.. Thanks!

Reason: Forgot to include more info
Given that March can be the beginning of spring break in some areas of the country, you will be probably be dealing with some children onboard the majority of cruiselines.
Looking for a lively cruise ??? Get onboard one of the newer Carnival FuN Ships !
Looking for something a little classier and perhaps a few more bells and whistles ??? Sail with RCI....
Looking for a tad more elegance and class ??? Think Celebrity
I would think that as a first choice given your ages, RCI would satisfy your needs, but may have more children onboard than Celebrity would.
Do some research on the various mass market cruiselines out there and see what type of cruise experience amongst them fits your lifestyle and expectations.... then look at the itineraries that are going to meet your needs.... then start narrowing
it down to a couple ships.
Congrats on your 5th and I hope you find the purrrrrfect cruise to celebrate on !

Having just been on Allure of the Seas, I can highly recommend this ship or her sister ship Oasis. So, much to do onboard, great entertainment and the food was excellent along with the service level...Kids have their own areas and if there were a lot onboard, you certainly didn't notice them.
I would highly recommend a Mexican Riviera Cruise on Carnival. My husband and I have done it twice, and loved it both times. There was a good mix of ages on board, and plenty to do. I strongly suggest the ATV excursion in Puerta Vallarta!! SO much fun! We got to explore the outdoors, get wet and dirty, and were fed at the end!! Happy cruise hunting!!

welcome, welcome. Cruising in march you will run into school vacation and spring break, which means more children on board, but most cruise lines have great kids programs to keep them occupied during the day. You have gotten some great recommendations in trying Royal Caribbean,and Carnival, i would like to throw Princess into the mix, i think Princess would be a good fit,look into the Grand Class of ships, they are big but not huge, lots to do, we went during school vacation and never felt over-run with kids, there were alot of kids on board including our own. The best piece of advise would be to find a local cruise-travel agent, go to any travel agency and specifically ask to speak to their cruise specialist, if they say oh we all know about cruising,ask again to speak to an agent who has actual cruise experience, if you still get, each of our agents know about cruising, turn around and walk out the door, and keep looking.
