Default Caribbean Princess

Has anyone been on this ship, and is the average age really 50-55 like I've been told?

I have been on the Caribbean Princess several times and I think that there is a wide diversity of ages aboard. A few years back Princess seemed to get an older crowd but I think the passengers are getting younger and younger. They have a wide range of activities to attract all ages.

we were on CP in April and I'd heard the same thing but it was not the case with our sailing. Hubby and I are late 30's/early 40's and my sis and her hubby are 48. We felt very comfortable and my guess would be that the average age was around 45. Your probably thinking like I was that you had booked a geriatric cruise but that was not it at all. Lots of night life, and plenty of people ready to have agreat time. If you're in your early 20's with no kids, you would have been in the minority on our cruise.

Like CruizinBuddy sez, Princess has really come around, and is no longer the "old folks cruise line". There is something for everyone aboard the CP, and you'll find all ages aboard, but again, I'd agree that the average age is probably 40-45.
If you're worried about an old folks cruise, than just avoid Holland American.
Happy sailing,
Marine, Pilot, Singer, Tuba Player, Carnival "Diamond"!

I just came off the ship and there was a wide range of ages. The only difference I noticed, in comparison to Carnival cruises, was that Princess cruisers seemed a little more "mature" and I don't mean "old", just more laid back and well behaved. Lovely ship though, lots to do!

DF and I enjoyed the Grand when we went.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.

totally agree that you will find a wide age range. If you go during school breaks you will find more pre-teens and teenagers. Princess seems to attract a very diverse and well-traveled crowd. We have met some very interesting folks of all ages on our cruises.

My friend and I were on the Caribbean Princess May 2005 and met several younger couples aged mid to late 20's, early 30's.

Doesn't Princess tout this as their "Love Boat"?

I thought I heard that after we were on board and noticed that there weren't many cruisers without their spouses. My best friend and I cruise without our husbands. We are so fortunate to have wonderful husbands that let us cruise together while they stay at home and work and keep the pets fed and happy.

Also, the giant movie screen shows "younger" movies durng the day such as Toy Story etc so there were plenty of children on board that had a blast swimming and watching a movie.

So if you're a couple in your 20's or 30's, I think you'll find the crowd easy to mix with. It's not a boring ship, in fact, the entertainment was great, I thought.
