March 2020 Cruise on the Anthem

Recommended Posts

We are considering the 3/29/2020  seven day Bahamas cruise on the Anthem. We did the Canada / New England cruise on this ship in the fall and had a great time. This particular cruise leaves Port Liberte 2 weeks before Easter. Not that we don't love kids but we are concerned that because of the proximity to Easter and Spring Break that the ship will be carrying a larger amount of children than usual. Also children under 12 years old will be sailing free. I am aware that Royal Caribbean markets itself as a family cruise experience and I expect there to be children on board. I am wondering however if this particular week would be one to avoid. Any opinions or comments?

Some schools now have spring breaks instead of Easter breaks. There will probably be an increased amount of children. If it bothers you, don't book.

Different schools have different breaks, you still might run into a significant number of college Spring breakers.  However, I'd avoid the week before and after Easter as those are typically the times when the younger children have school breaks.

 The 4/5/ 2020 sailing is my kids easter break. Will be on that one with them and probably  many more kids from the area. If your not into kids, might want to avoid that one.  lol. Also it's not a kids sail free week.Wish it was but it not.
