Fascinated in the Midwest

We returned from a family cruise, 2400 people on a Carnival ship out of Tampa. I was surprised by the number of Utah residents cruising! Every game show, every introduction of passengers seemed to include someone (or more) from Utah!
Tshirts we noticed on tender boats indicated the wearers were from Brigham Young school (elementary? junior highs? U?). These were larger families with multiple women (could be aunts, cousins, etc.) and plenty of kids. The newlyweds on the tender in front of us...well, the bride looked like she might be all of 14 years old. So young!
Don't their children return to school immediately after January 1?
Is early- to mid-January a popular time for LDS to cruise for any particular reason? I am curious.
