Default graduation!! cruise for four 18 yr old girls, which one?

Hey so in may class of 08 will be graduating! me and 3 of my best friends are asking for a cruise for our graduation presents and we're beyond lost as to which one to go with!

we're not so picky as to where the cruise goes [something tropical ideally of course] but we just want to find a fun cruise we like to party and have a good time, meet guys and dance!

basically we just want an insane week and ive yet to find any cruise that's not incredibly family friendly...which is understandable but we're looking for a crazy cruise...soo any advice or stories from your cruise experience to help us choose a cruise line for this summer would be greatly appreciated!!

we live in Texas if that helps, looking for a 7 night cruise! thanks!

Since you're looking to party it up, my best recommendation for you would have to be Carnival. Carnival, for me, has always been the best for parties as well as kicking back and chilling during the day; if you need help with a specific ship, let me know where you are looking to go for the 7 days

i think carnival is the best for that, with royal caribbean coming in at number two. they are both great cruise lines for partying and meeting tons of people- especially during the summer.

Out of Galveston, my personal recommendation would have to be the Carnival Conquest which goes through Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Jamaica.

First of all I also definitely reccomend Carnival. However, be aware of their age policies. If all of you are 18 then you won't be allowed aboard Carnival (or RCCL either I don't think). Carnival's policy is that if anyone in the stateroom is under 21 (all of you are) then you must have at least one person in that same room who is at least 25. So if you're all 18 then you'd better find someone who's 25 if you wanna do this. It's not hard, I'm planning a group cruise for friends/co-workers of mine on CCL and I'm just saying I'm in a room with someone else who is 25+ and we're going to just swap sleeping accommodations.

Good luck eh

Princess is (one of?) the only major cruise lines that allow 18 year olds without supervision to book rooms.
My brother did it last year and had a blast.

Not anymore. Princess has changed their policy to 21. Disney Cruise Line is the only cruiseline allowing under 21 to book alone...

Yup...unless of course you don't mind not having a casino, and don't mind partying with the young kids...
