NCL: Please Consider Adding College Mixers for Ages18 - early 20s Traveling with Parents


Recommended Posts

One reason my family has cruised so much over the years is because we have an only child, and the kids clubs on the ships made it possible for my daughter to hang out with friends her own age while we were on vacation. My daughter has enjoyed cruise line kids clubs since she was young enough to participate, up through her teen years. Our 2020 cruises, when she was 16, were of course cancelled, and it is unclear how soon cruising will resume in 2021 now that she has turned 17. 

 

When she turns 18, the teen club will no longer be available to her. She will be in college, and we will continue to take her on vacations, but at that point will look beyond cruising for other vacation options; i.e., those for which it would be more practical to bring a friend of hers along. 

 

However, as a loyal NCL cruiser and stockholder, I have to think other families are "in the same boat," so to speak 🙂, so I thought I would just put out there this idea of adding college mixers as young adult programming.  I believe NCL reads these boards from time to time, and it would be helpful to get input from fellow cruisers. 

 

Please let me know your thoughts.

 

(I've also posted this on the RCL board).

It is part of the program onboard in the daily newsletter. On the Gem at Christmas 2017 they done it in Maltings I think it. I think it depends upon how many people of that age group are onboard.

I have long wondered why that age bracket doesn’t have a group offered onboard. When I had just graduated from high school, the cruise line did let me into both the teen club as well as the adult club, but there was no one around me age with whom to hang out.

They done it...  That line always makes me laugh.
