If you’re a twenty-something, or even in your early thirties and looking for your next big adventure, consider booking a cruise. Bear with us. While cruises were at one time geared towards retirees and families, today’s cruises offer a host of amenities and excitement for young adults. You can even find themed cruises. We’re talking everything from Craft Beers Cruises on Celebrity Cruises to the Rock Boat XIX Cruise on Norwegian Pearl (cruise with a variety of well-known rock bands). So, before you say ‘”Bon Voyage” to a cruise vacation, check out these cruises you’ll love if you’re under 35.
MSC Cruise Line | For: Deal Seekers
How about a cruise line that offers fantastic cruise deals, specifically for 18-29-year-olds? MSC provides special shared cabin rates specifically for this age group. Just quote Young & Young when booking. Aside from great bars and restaurants, the nights heat up with a variety of activities such as the classy White Party, groovy Flower Glory Party, wild Carnival Party and more. Spend your days taking part in sports tournaments and professional dance classes.
Carnival Cruises | For: The Party Crowd
Carnival is all about the fun. With some of the best nightlife on the seas, you can expect to get down at the Nightclub, where Dj’s spin your favorite tunes. Prefer live music? You’ll have access to the best bands at sea, nightly. Aside from evening entertainment, onboard activities keep the adventures in high gear. Sail on Carnival Vista and Horizon for the ultimate thrill, Skyride. The equivalent of riding a bike, only instead of being on the ground, you’re soaring high above the ship. And, if you’re looking to lounge sans kids, the adult-only sundeck, Serenity, is available on most all ships.
U by Uniworld | For: Millenials
River cruises aren’t just for your grandparents. U by Uniworld takes a fresh approach to riverboat cruising with activities, geared toward twenty and thirty-year-olds. Onboard life consists of Paint & Wine, Silent DJ Parties, Mixology classes, and even Rooftop Camping. Oh, and there’s complimentary wifi access across the ship, which is typically unheard of. The so-called millennial cruise line’s laid back vibe is all about you.
Virgin Voyages | For: Adults Only
If your goal is to escape little ones, this is your ship. Virgin Voyages is an 18 and older cruise. Unlimited wifi, meals, group workouts, and tips are all included in your journey. As sophisticated as it is fun, your late nights will merge into leisure mornings with epicurean bounties at 20 plus eateries and a range of fitness classes from high-intensity workouts to restorative yoga.
Royal Caribbean | For: You Name It
A little bit of everything, from the robot mixologists that pour your drink to the 40-foot long surf simulator, we promise you will be entertained from sun up to sundown. Give lady luck a spin at the Casino Royale before heading to the English Pub or Champagne Bar. Spend your days sunning at the relaxing indoor-outdoor retreat, the Solarium, Royal Caribbean’s adults-only pool featuring swimming pools, whirlpools, lounge areas, and lagoons. If you’re having a hard time deciding, Royal Caribbean covers all the bases.
