What cruise line has the least children? One that does not cater to children?

Wanting to cruise to Alaska.

Probably Holland America or Princess (though Princess can have more childern)

Both amy have some childern, but are geared more towards and older crowd.

Celebrity would be another possiblity...

Most families will go on RCCL and Carnival...

Yes, I agree with Jim,
Holland America is probably the Cruise Line with less children on their ships.

cgsample,

first of all welcome to Cruise-Chat.com.

There are threee cruise lines which have ships that do not allow children at all: P&O Cruises ("Arcadia" and "Artemis" only), Thomson Cruises ("The Calypso" only) and easyCruise.

Neither of those offer cruises to Alaska, however.

Holland America probably is a good choice among the more popular cruise lines, as are any of the small operators like Cruise West.

+ SAGA ROSE + SAGA RUBY from SAGA CRUISES.

Both will definately have no kids... But you must be yourself 50 years old and your company min. 40 years old...

I have spoken with a representative of HAL: Average age for Alaska and New England/Canada cruises: 75.

Regards,
HeinBloed

I'd recommend either Holland America (as others have) or Crystal. Both allow kids, but will have fewer than most other lines.

We have done Holland America twice to Alaska and we hardly ever saw kids. If we did see them, the average seemed to be under 2 or so. It was very, very rare to see them, however.

You'll want Holland America, Celebrity or Princess.

If your plan is to avoid babies/kids/teens, DON'T BOOK WITH CARNIVAL or RCCL (especially during February and March)
