BLYTH - Answered a Question by greener (26 Jan 09 11:34)

No one could say for certain but the younger age group would I think be less evident and the older one more the majority. Have done a few cruises at this time of the year and I would say the majority was in the 50/80 age group [60%] the 30/50 [30%] and under 30 [10%], but your cruise could reflect a different set of profiles. Don't let it concern you, just go out and enjoy yourself.

Broadly agree with Blyth, except the ship doesn't appeal to elderly coffin-dodgers (watch the complaints coming thro' about that phraseology!) Otherwise a wide age range, though perhaps a high proportion 45 - 65 Think you'll find that ANY week is half-term week for some kids, but probably not too many. And since parents of any unruly kids don't keep an eye on them, its easy to throw them overboard without being noticed (more complaints). Super ship, easy-going, mainly a good bunch of fellow-passengers. Have fun, Chris .

Hello, we are traveling on 17th feb for the 2 week cruise on ov1 , 2 adults and 2 children, aged 8 and 10. During the first week it is half term and we have special permission to take the children out of school for the remaining time. I hasten to add this is the first time we have ever taken our children out of school during term time. We see this as a chance to broaden our childrens experiences and we are not parents that expect our children to be unruly. Mind you if my children had left home i would probably consider a p and o child free ship !!!!!

If you are a Royal Caribbean fan like myself, I am sure you are aware that the Independence of the seas will be going into dry dock in April this year getting ready for her super refurbishment for release in May 2018.I must say when I heard the news that she was having a multi million dollar makeover I was really excited to hear of what new and exciting things would be coming onboard. Having been on the Independence for a 13 night Atlantic Island and Canary cruise 3 years, as well as speaking...

The additional gratuity c...
