Looking for a 3-4 day cruise to Mexico around October - November out of Los Angeles. Not a big partier for my age (25) so I would like to find a cruise with an older crowd. Any suggestions on which cruiseline offers such a cruise?
Your other choices are Carnival and (I believe) NCL; and I feel pretty safe in saying they will have even MORE of a party atmosphere.
I live near L.A. and while I've never done a 3-4 day I know many that have--it's the perfect getaway if you are in the area. I've heard good things about all of them but I think RCI would be your best bet.
We've done the 4 day a couple of times and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I'd suggest the 4 day over the 3 day as you're less likely to have the "weekend warriors." The RCI ship out of San Pedro, Monarch of the Seas, is showing her age, but the crew more than makes up for any of the ship's shortcomings (except the Headwaiter).
Hello. I have done the 4 day RCCL on the Monarch, and the 3 day Carnival on the Paradise. My husband and I both liked the Monarch, over the Paradise much more. We thought the Monarch was a more classical/prettier ship, then the Paradise. Also, we both HATED the Paradise dining room. We felt like we were in a cheesy disco, with the lights on the ceiling, and really hated the dining booths we sat in. As far as the crowd, it didn't seem too different either ship. Both those ships are older, but we both thought the Monarch was more classy. Hope this helps. Lil' Lori
