Interesting. My wife and daughter went on a cruise around the Mediterranean, 
starting from Barcelona, last year. Based on the demographics of the 
passengers I saw boarding, the majority were under 50 and there were lots of 
families with children. I think the difference may be in the fact that we 
get much longer vacations on this side of the Atlantic, so working people 
(and after all, you need to have a job to pay for a cruise) have time for 
this sort of thing.

BTW; I did not go along because the thought of being cooped up on a ship for 
a week sounded deadly boring. I don't much like organized travel.
