According to statistics the average age of cruise ship passengers is fifty, yet thirty percent are under forty, and it is becoming more and more the in thing for young people looking for nightlife.
Taking a cruise was once only for the rich but now there are some excellent cruise lines that are budget as well as comfortable, yet another reason making cruise holidays a more attractive package for young people.
One of the best-known companies is Carnival, who sails around Europe from the UK and also to the exotic east and west Caribbean, Bahamas, Mexican Riviera and Baja Mexico to more than sixty destinations, via numerous routes.
They were the pioneers of budget shorter cruises and offer non stop entertainment in a party like environment, which has made them one of the most popular cruise lines in the world especially with the younger generation.
The Carnival Conquest caters extensively for the younger generation, operating Caribbean cruises with countless discos, dance clubs, bars and various types of music, including reggae, jazz and rock and roll. So whatever you choose, there will be plenty of music to choose from.
However young people expect more than just night life and the Conquest doesn't fall short in any way, as it provides you with thirteen decks, four swimming pools, a water slide, basket ball court, jogging track, golf center and wide ranging spa facilities. Although there are two formal restaurants, there are also casual options and a cafe, sushi restaurant and a twenty-four hour pizzeria, as well as a good selection of bars.
For anyone under the age of 30 and looking for a low cost cruise holiday, there are some tips for finding the best possible deal:
It is important to find out about bespoke theme packages, for example 18 - 30's, single, lesbian, gay and if it's a family affair see if family discount packages are an option, as you will find that most cruise lines have something for everyone.
If you are flexible about when you want to depart, you are more likely to find some better deals at the last minute. Alternatively, many cruise lines offer discounts for booking early and there are also savings to be made for looking for departures closer to home.
If you use a travel agent who has plenty of experience with selling cruise holidays then you will find that there could be access to some better deals. It is always advisable to ask what is available, as some fares are fax specials which are not always published.
Another budget cruise line providing an essential product for a basic cost in cruise holidays for young people and worth looking out for is Thompson who sails to Europe, Mediterranean, Scandinavia, the Baltic's and North Africa.
