Next Generation Cruising

by Sherri Eisenberg


What: Norwegian Cruise Line

Where: Alaska, Caribbean, and Hawaii

Perfect for: Adrenaline junkies—and their enabling spouses and kids

Youth Factor: High-adventure shore trips. In Alaska, this means piloting a four-wheel Jeep through the Ketchikan wilderness or repelling down a mountainside outside of Skagway. In Maui, bike down Mount Haleakala at sunrise—a 38-mile downhill ride with speeds of up to 20 miles per hour.

Cruise Mates: Young families, couples, and some older folks too.

High Seas: NCL—which has done away with dress-up nights and set mealtimes—lets you book your shore excursions online and sorts them by challenge level. Your wife might choose from the "Type 1" menu (such as a beach day in Maui), while you can sign up for all those "Type 3" adventures.

Rough Sailing: Tons of kids are cute and fun—if they're yours.

The Deal: Seven-night cruises start at $495; excursions extra.
