I recently did my first cruise with my teenage son on Carnival Sensation and am now planning a 7-day eastern or southern caribbean cruise to take on my own or with a singles group. I'm looking at RCI ad NCL. For those who have cruised these NCL itineraries, which ship do you recommend for someone who is 48, divorced and wants to avoid the 20-30 something loud/drinking/obnoxious crowds? Also do any of these itineraries sail on an RCI ship that has an adults only pool? Thanks!
We cruised on the NCL Pearl in March and we had a great time! We are in our mid 40s and the crowd was probably mid 30s and mid 40s. We sailed from Miami to Cozumel and Belize. There were plenty of children on board but you got to see them every now and then, specially during the chocolate midnight buffet. The adults were very well behaved and we never saw anyone "drunk out of their heads."
