For travelers who want a hassle-free vacation, an adults-only all-inclusive cruise is the holy grail. No kids taking over the hot tub or whining at dinner, and no nickel and diming to take away from the joys of onboard life. If you're this kind of traveler, you might be disappointed to know that options are limited for kid-free, no-extra-fees cruise lines although, as we'll point out, this describes most river cruises and small ship cruises. Here are the best all-inclusive cruises for adults -- plus, some additional options for lines and itineraries to consider. Three cruise lines stand out as having company policies that exclude children and very inclusive pricing policies.
Adults-Only Cruises From Florida
Adults Only Cruises | USA Today
Florida with its continuous sunshine has plenty of places to satisfy your desires. If you truly seek a break from the outside world and want to indulge in a seemingly limitless amount of spa time, head to The Standard Miami. Inside the rooms, water remains an outstanding feature in the deep soaker tubs, some inside the subway tile bathrooms complete with rainfall showers, while others lay out on the terrace hidden from neighboring views. With its plus age restriction, you can be assured fellow guests are seeking the same serenity.
Serenity Adult Only Retreat
Cancun Boobs Cruise operated by cancuncare. Liberated adults from around the World join together in the name of fun to lose their inhibitions and party all day while aboard a luxury catamaran. Find out what makes our cruise different to all the rest.
Cruise ship sun decks offer all the convenience of loungers, hot tubs and beverage service -- and all the headaches of screaming children, rock concerts on poolside screens and live bands playing "Hot Hot Hot" for the 20th time. Adults-only sun decks offer all the former in a much more serene environment. We have nothing against kids, but even on the most family-friendly cruise ships, an area explicitly excluding children gives parents a valuable hour or two of "me time," while maintaining the sanity of fellow cruisers who came on vacation for peace, quiet and minimal crying. Adults-only sun decks come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Many have amenities not available in the main deck areas and nicer loungers or sun beds; some also require an entry fee.
