GIRLS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN (BOYS, TOO)
Where: Greek islands
Perfect for: The postcollege clique looking to relive that backpacking tripand party on land every night.
Youth Factor: The first completely á la carte cruise line includes neither food nor activities in the room rate. Hence prices are really, really low ($13 per night, anyone?). Your parents may have embraced the all-inclusive cruise, but we bet you won't mind pulling your wallet out of the safe for an authentic Greek feast in Paros rather than rushing back on board for a buffet you've "already paid for."
Cruise Mates: Young Europeansmostly Brits who've flown the company's budget airline, Easyjet. Plenty of hen parties.
High Seas: Instead of leaving port at six in the evening, as most ships do, Easycruise docks overnight in Mykonos, Ios, and other places known for nightlife, so you can drink the ouzo with abandon. (The ship sails in the early morning while you're still sleeping off that last round.)
Rough Sailing: Cabins are spartan, and you have to pay extra for maid service. Then again, it's only $8 to get your bathroom cleaned.
The Deal: Three-night Med cruises start at $40 per person.
