Default Dawn: What can we expect Thanksgiving week re: kids?

My wife and are booked on the Dawn Thanksgiving week. What can we expect regarding the passenger mix; i.e. adults and kids? While we have two of our own (now adults, at least legally) we prefer not to cruise with alot of kids around pushing, shoving, grabbing, yelling, crying, running, and spilling. Any thoughts regarding what we can expect re: kids. Remember, the cruise leaves the Friday before Thanksgiving, when most kids are still in school.

Many schools now give the entire week of Thanksgiving off so parents are willing to take the kids out of school a day or so. Hate to break this to you, but the ship will be filled with families. Not as much as spring break, but close. Just try to grin and bear it as best you can. We did Celebrity one year out of San Juan duing
Thanksgiving week, it was wall to wall kids, some well behaved, many spoiled brats...

Anytime Thanksgiving week (and the few days preceding) is probably going to be family i.e. kid week. We are cruising the week AFTER Thanksgiving for that very reason. I'm under the impression that the weeks after T-giving but before X-mas are good times for grown-ups.

Default Thanks for your replies.

Thanks so much for your insights. I am hoping against hope that you're wrong, but something inside me tells me that you both are as right as can be. Enjoy your cruises!!!!!

That was a big Ooops!! During just about any holiday cruise you're likely to find 800 or more passengers onboard who are 18 or under.

That's not to say you aren't going to enjoy the cruise. I bet you will!

You'll just have a few more kids "underfoot" than it sounds like you would like
