What is the best cruise line for the 20 somethings age group?I always hear its Carnival...haven't been on Carnival yet...am going to Mex riviera in April on the Carnival Spirit. Have sailed on NCL(hawaii) & RCL(baja). On both those cruises there were lots of 20ish ers and they all seemed to be having a blast.Lots of on deck parties/games etc & nightclubs had current dance music.I've heard HAL is mostly old people(I'm 40ish so older than that hahaha) and "quieter". So imho i think you'd have fun on any of those cruiselines. Esp is you are going for Spring Break...its really fun and there' s lots of college age kids on board during that time. I'm sure u will have fun no matter what...cruising is I think the best vacation..always something to do or not do if you want.
I agree with VladdyFan; Carnival has the reputation of being more of a party atmosphere so that would work best for your group.

What is the best cruise line for the 20 somethings age group?I have only sailed Disney and Carnival. I think your group would be most happy with Carnival. There is a lot of people your age hanging out at the pool and enjoying the games. But like someone else said any cruise would be loads of fun! There is something for everyone at just about every time of the day. Just be sure to starve yourself and get lots of sleep before you go!

Carnival, Royal, and Norwegian all should be OK but I would stay away from Celebrity, Holland America, and Princess.
Again, Carnival is your best bet.

Also I think that the length of the cruise matters a lot. Ours was 5 days. On the longer cruises, which are more expensive and require more vacation days, there's probably fewer young people.
