Ok, so my friends and I are thinking of going on a cruise next summer when we're all 18.
I was looking into it and I didn't want a cruise line that was aimed toward seniors or anything and I'm well aware that Carnival doesn't allow you to go at 18 unless you have someone age 25 with you.
So I was looking on google for cruise lines aimed toward 'young adults' and it said Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, and Princess.
I have been on Royal before and I do like it, but I was just wondering if Norwegian and Princess were worth going on instead?
Any feedback would be great!

Royal Carribbean is my personal favorite. It's modern and fun...which is what you're looking for. I haven't been on Princess in years so I don't really have much for you there. Norwegian used to be not as family/young adult friendly as it is these days. They're really trying to please more age groups with their 'freestyle cruising'. Both lines are pretty good, but I like Royal better. =]
Disney is basically your only shot, if you don't mind giant Mickey Mice and Goofys running around, then by all means go for it, but be forewarned, Disney's cheapest I've seen runs at around $900 a head in the offseason.

I guess it's kind of out the question because of age limits, but I was gonna say that if you somehow do go on Norwegian, expect something different from the typical cruise. The concept of freestyle cruising is good, just very different from the norm.
