Deals for Senior Cruisers: The Perfect Relaxing Holiday
Nobody loves cruising like seniors. It’s the ultimate way to unwind and the average passenger age on some lines is well beyond the first half-century mark. With a wide variety of options in terms of destinations, ships and cruise styles, there’s bound to be something to suit every older cruiser.
What to Expect
Cruises give passengers the chance to visit some of the most exciting overseas destinations without having to deal with busy airports, potentially unreliable public transport or expensive hotels.
Passengers unpack once onboard and they don’t need to pack their belongings until their cruise comes to an end. There’s no cooking, cleaning or related chores which means you’ll have more time for fun and relaxation.
Since there’s nothing to do buy kick back and enjoy the ride, this is the perfect for those who are no longer up for those wild backpacking adventures.
There are many ports just waiting to be explored as well as activities that allow passengers to participate according to their abilities. Of course, if you prefer to sit around the pool, you’re more than welcome!
A far as costs go, cruises are also some of the most affordable options with food, accommodation and transport all included.
On a per-day basis, long cruises usually end up cheaper – even cheaper than a retirement home in some cases! Being retired certainly has its perks and it means that seniors have more time to enjoy travelling and exploring new places. A World Cruise is an experience that takes almost a third of a year to complete and it is amazing in every way. Seniors are some of the fortunate few who are able to take full advantage of these long cruise adventures.
Choosing the Right Cruise Deal
There are many things for older travellers to do onboard. The onboard entertainment options and activities differ depending on the cruise line. On Princess Cruises, seniors are able to learn some computer skills while P&O Australia offers bingo or the child-free Oasis. Royal Caribbean offers wine tasting and crafts like jewellery making and a big hit on Cunard ships is the afternoon tea in traditional British style. Choosing a cruise line will depend on a number of factors. For those who are fond of tradition and nostalgia, Holland America and Cunard are both superb options. For seniors who still have that sense of adventure, Orion Expeditions or a special Silversea or Seabourn expedition cruise won’t disappoint. For the young at heart, Carnival often throws parties for just such passengers. P&O UK has a number of ships for adults only and these are ideal for older cruisers who are looking for a more peaceful child-free environment.
