Hi,

My husband and I are considering going on a cruise for the first time and would appreciate any suggestions/tips you have to offer. I am 25 yrs old, he's 30 so, we want a "fun" cruise, but not with too many kids. Also, I am almost certain I want to do the eastern caribbean route, since I've always wanted to see St. Martin and St. Thomas. I hear their beaches are amazing. What cruiseships would you suggest?

Thanks for your responses...

Welcome to cruise-chat. First, if avoiding kids is a real issue, avoid Christmas break, Spring break and summer vacation. That is when almost all the cruiselines have numerous families and children on board. Personally, I recommend Royal Caribbean for first time cruisers in your age bracket - particularly one of their newer mega-ships like the Voyager,Adventure, Explorer, Navigator or Mariner (all do Eastern Caribbean itineraries). I think they offer a great amount of activity, fun and entertainment, while maintaining a level of sophistication. Carnival is a good choice if you are looking for a serious die-hard partying atmosphere. Hope this has helped a bit -
Nancy

I would agree with Nancy. Even if there are kids on a Voyager class ship (Royal Caribbean), you will rarely see them as they have such outstanding kids facilities aboard. Stay away from the holiday periods and summer. like Nancy says, and you will have a great experience.
