I'm interested in booking a cruise this year and was wondering which cruise would be the best to meet women in the 25-35 range.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Cruises of seven nights or less (Caribbean, Mexican Riviera, Alaska, or Canada/New England) on either Carnival Cruise Line or Royal Caribbean International generally attract the most young adults -- both single and married -- because these lines market themselves to that audience.
Then again, single ladies in this age bracket might well be most apt to cruise with a divorced or widowed parent on one of the other lines.
Now, if you were to ask which cruise would be best to meet single ladies in the 25-35 range who would share your interests and lifestyle, the answer would be radically different. If that's your real goal, the best approach is to pick a cruise line and itinerary that meets your interest and lifestyle and get involved in activities and shore excursions that match your interests. You might not meet single ladies on every cruise, but you will have something in common, from which to build a relatinship, with the single ladies that you do meet.
Book an organized singles cruise with a singles agency. Go through the list on the singles home page here at cruisemates, Pat Hagan has a detailed list under singles calender that shows all the agencys. Don't expect the Swedish Bikinni team though. Some offer cruises for certain age groups others are all inclusive. Look through the photos for an idea of what to expect. They will find you a same sex roomate, or you can pay more and get your own cabin. This is the best way to meet singles, other wise the ships are mostly familys and couples.
I agree with Showcat's post. You will usually find more single women (and men) on organized singles cruises. Check the Cruisemates singles cruise calendar, and you will see several listings for different age groups. I have just updated the calendar and see "20s, 30s, and 40s" targeted on a number of cruises.
As for the length of the cruise, younger singles usually book for shorter sailings due to lack of available time off from work. They also go for holiday weekends. Older people, retired or with lots of vacation time, go for longer cruises.
