Default Average age of travelers on NCL?

I was just curious what is the average age of travelers on NCL's ships? We're in our mid-30s and worry a little that entertainment and activities could be oriented to a much older crowd. We're not the partying type at all, but also don't necessarily want to be surrounded by people on walkers (no offense to those who need them)!

Hi Michelle,

When and where are you traveling? My husband and I (38 and 43, respectively) will be on NCL Spirit to Alaska 9/11-9/18. We are not partiers either.

Wherever you are going, have a great time!

Angel

I read that the average age on the Dawn is 45.

I find the age group depends on where you cruise. Alaska seems to have the older set.

Ok, the question is wide open so the answer is too!
You cannot pigeon hole the average NCL passenger.

7 day cruises usually run a demographic of early twenties to mid fifites.
7 day Alaska usaully runs higher (higher costs tend to reduce "early earners"..those just on their way uip the financial scale.). Average late 40's to 60's +

But NCL is not a "walker" cruise line nor is it a fake ID cruise line..

Just my 2 cents worth which probably isn't worth even a penny: as some have said, the average age depends on the length of the cruise and the itinerary; Western Caribbean will have a younger crowd than Alaska. The Europian cruises will have an older crowd; that being said; my opinion after 15 cruises on most the major lines: NCL has the biggest age spread of all lines. As for the entertainment it is certainly not geared the geriatrics crowd. Just go and enjoy!

Thanks for the feedback! We will be on the Sun turnaround cruise from LA to Vancouver in two weeks. I had heard that the West Coast/Alaska tours tend to attract an older crowd (my in-laws were the youngest on theirs and they're in their late 50s!), which prompted the concern. Glad to hear it's a diverse crowd spanning all age groups -- exactly what we were looking for.

Just to add my 1 cent worth and yah with deflation it ain't!! Can/New England cruises also, like Alaska, attract the oldest crowds - just for what its worth. Happy cruisin'!

Well if you go on a ship during vacation break you'll have about 1,000 kids like we did last week. But they were all good. I would say the ages vary.
