Our family of 4 ( kids 6 and 11) from Oz will be going on our first cruise on 4 jan for 1 week on Allure Eastern Caribbean cruise. As US schools I think have gone back by then what other kids nationalities are generally on this type of ship this time of year. just curious if kids will have other English speaking children to meet. i think read somewhere that lots of South Americans at this time?
thanks in advance

There will still be lots of kids from the US and Canada. Many kids are home schooled and many others will be taken out of school for the week since fares are usually lower.

Another poster told me that on their early Nov cruise on Allure (which is also non-peak time for kids), they had about a 150 kids on board. So, that's not too bad.
