Would a first time cruiser or infrequent cruise know that spring break affects cruises? Perhaps, especially if they are members of CC. During March there are always news reports of beaches being taken over by college students but I’ve never seen news reports of ships being taken over. I would hope that anyone booking a cruise in March with a travel agent would get a heads up from the TA. I really think the cruise line should at least give a heads up about cruises that might be impacted by spring breakers.
They should probably do a guest breakdown and keep it running as people book.
You know, what the age demographics are, how many minors accompanied by both parents, how many single parents, how many single males and single females, how many gays and how many lesbians, how many blacks and whites, how many minors are home-schooled, how many adults are attending college, how many children are booked for the Haven.
All of these things are important to someone.
Could you imagine if someone decided that they wanted a nice quiet week at the beach and chose Daytona FL during spring break. They would come down with their 2.5 children who are in elementary school, middle school, and high school, because that is when those schools are on break. And suddenly they are in this place filled with college people drinking.
Probably easier to go to year round schooling until people are old enough to move out of their parent's homes. No breaks means that parents will have to pull the kids out during school and that should spread out the vacation issues.
