I have also posted these questions on the NCL board as we are considering that cruise also. I hope that is not against the BB rules to post in 2 places
Thanks and happy sailing!
We were on Voyager in early July for their Med cruise starting/ending in Barcelona. I recall seeing karaoke once but there could have been more. Usually there is some sing along in the Schooner Bar, too, but I didn't spend much time there so I can't say for sure.
There shouldn't be many kids in September because most will be in school but there may still some who are too young yet for school. September is traditionally a non-family time to cruise so there may be an older (not necessarily elderly) crowd.
We really loved Voyager and had a great time. The ship is clean and well maintained, the crew were great. The food got significantly better on the second night and remained so for the rest of the cruise. The Beatles show was the best show I've seen on a ship in 8 cruises. It is a very port intensive cruise, too much so for my taste. The ship's tours run between 8-10 hours and there is only one sea day, you are on the go everyday from early (7 a.m.) to late, so pace yourself.
I'd be happy to answer any more questions if you have them.
I would think that cruising in Sept. will have less kids because most are in school. Its the school breaks that have more, I wouldn't worry about that.
Yes that is kind of what we're hoping for, but school breaks and holidays are different in many places. I find most kids are quite well behaved on the cruises I've taken, and truthfully children don't have a monopoly on misbehaving or rudeness.
We sailed voyager in May. Don't know how many kids there will be; but there was Kareoke on Deck 5 lounge twice; like the other person mentioned; the schooner bar has sing alongs just about everyday; the main kareoke bar is on Deck 5; I believe it is the Cleopatra needle

I was on the Explorer in April and the cruise was loaded with kids! I did not think this would be the case but as it turns out, it was a school holiday in the Boston area. I overheard one crew member saying they had seven hundred kids on board which is seven times the average.
As far as karaoke, I think it was every other night. I made the top nine finalists and got to sing in The Palace which is a 1300 seat room, it was pretty cool even though I didn't win.
If there was a second or third prize, I think I would have walked away with something.
