Don’t get stuck on the wrong spring break cruise!
Let’s start with college students first. [families scroll down]
Benefits of a cruising for college students:
– For many, it does not require airfare
– Price includes meals
– Price is MUCH lower than Air + Hotel in Cancun or Jamaica
– Entertainment is included. [don’t have to pay a cover charge to get in the club] – There is a Casino [but, you should probably avoid it] – Reserve Cabin not with fully REFUNDABLE Deposit
Drawbacks of cruising for college students:
– Age restrictions:
o Most cruise lines require at least one passenger over the age of 21 in each cabin.
o Carnival cruises requires someone over 25 if there is anyone under 21 in the cabin.
– The cruise ship will have non-college spring breakers onboard
If your Spring Break is March 3 or 10th, the Enchantment of the Seas 4-nt Bahamas Cruises will be loaded with college students because of the 5th Annual Carolina Nightlife Spring Break Party Cruises.
Last year close to 400 college students cruised with the Carolina Nightlife group representing top ranked party schools including East Carolina, South Carolina, University of Florida, UNCC, etc. Click here for details on the 2014 Spring Break Party Cruise.
Outside of the Carolina Nightlife Spring Break Cruise, you will find the most college students on other 3 – 5 night Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruises. If everyone you are cruising with is 21 and over then you can checkout the 3 – 5 Carnival Cruises.
2014 Family Spring Break Cruise Guide
Most colleges have their Spring Break between March 3rd – March 28th. The weeks of March 3rd and March 10th are the two biggest weeks of college spring break.
If you’re going to take a Caribbean cruise with your family during the month of March, I recommend sticking with 7 night cruises. For shorter cruises in March 2014, Disney will be your best family option.
The good news is that most school-age kids have spring break Easter week which happens to be late this year. Easter Sunday is April 20th, 2014.
The week before and after Easter are PEAK SEASON. You will want to reserve a cabin as soon as possible to get the best deal.
