Best cruise line for 18-20 year olds?

Gladly. If nothing else, it gets the thread back on topic from the usual hijacker. 🙄

 

Royal Caribbean’s newer ships are full of physical activities that can be very attractive to a 18 year old. Things like Flowrider, zip line, water slides, ice skating, sky diving, etc.  Carnival and NCL also have many similar amenities but to me, Royal Caribbean has been a better overall experience. 
 

 

We have Carnival Panorama on hold for an 8 day that adds La Paz. I looked into Royal and they have mostly the same itinerary, unless we all fly to down to TX, and it still includes two Mexican ports so I'm less inclined towards that route. I will take a look again and check the ships out and see if there is a newer one during that time to compare. Thanks for the info!

NCL is not the only line that allows the parents to sign a waiver which if you think about it is actually ludicrous because at 18 they are adults.   Parents can't even sign for medical treatment for someone 18 but they have control of whether they can drink.  Just silly.  

 

Should point out also that on some cruise lines they can't drink at 18 but are very welcome to play in the casino.

Sounds like you have a good itinerary too.  We were fortunate to take some Mexican Riviera family group cruises when the kids were in their teens.   I would describe them as vibrant and enjoyable for the whole family.
