I have been on 12 or 13 cruises. On Dec 11 I am taking my new bride (been married two years) on her first cruise. We are taking Norwegian Star on the Mexican Riveria.

We have gotten some fantastic comments from others on here who have gone on the same cruise. Thank you for that.

Now for a new problem. We have a 30 year old daughter (my stepdaughter) and her husband who is 32. They have never been on a cruise. With four young boys they need a vacation. ha

They are thinking about February or March next year. They do want a balcony. Both of them are very active in their church so the 'party' ships are not really an option.

Tom, Nancy and all the others. What would you recommend? They are looking for a seven day cruise somewhere in the three grand cost range.

Assuming they are in Southern California and looking at a Mexican Riviera cruise, the Norwegian Star would be a great choice. The kids would be happy and your step daughter and husband would be as well. It would be a great choice for a young family.

Thanks as usual Tom.

I left out some information on my original post. They are going without the kids (I guess grandparents are worth something). We all live in the Atlanta area.

Then my suggestion would be the Voyager class RCI ships if they are "young" parents and a Brilliance class RCI ship if they are "mature" parents. They could be either in the early 30's. I don't think you can go wrong with either one. Everyone in the family would have a great time and still bond as a family.

Just my opinion.

I agree that Royal Caribbean is great for 30-somethings (as well as a lot of other age groups).

Hello,

I would also consider a Celebrity ship out of Fort Lauderdale. The parents would appreciate the elegance, service and less of a party atmosphere on a Celebrity ship. They could save money by driving from Atlanta to Fort Lauderdale instead of flying. Also, Princess has some very nice cruises out of Fort Lauderdale. And if they are willing to spend up to $1,500 per person for a 7 day cruise in February or March, they should get a balcony cabin on an upper deck.

Thank you all as usual for your wonderful responses.

They have decided to go on Norwegian Majesty the first week in February out of Charleston.

Ron

Any feedback or knowledge of this cruise let me know.
