The ideal holiday for seniorsTraveling by sea allows for passengers to visit exotic destinations all around a particular region without having to pour over guidebooks or websites for weeks on end to work out arrangements. Knowing that you can travel in style to interesting locations and have all of your entertainment prearranged is a huge boon! That way you can spend your time relaxing and enjoying the holiday instead of frantically calling around to make plans. By embarking on a cruise, you have chosen to sail away from the busy hubbub of day to day stress and into a gloriously rejuvenating vacation!
Cruise lines recognise that passengers in their later years sometimes require a little more down-time to recover from activity, and that some aren’t as mobile as they used to be. As a result, they offer activities such as cooking workshops and dance lessons that can be tailored to the individual participants. Whether you choose to enjoy a day at the pool and an evening at the theatre, or take a walk around one of the ports while onshore, the decision is entirely yours!
No matter if you’re traveling with a partner, small group or flying solo, there are many opportunities to interact with fellow voyagers. If you’re interested in making friends aboard the ship, choose to share a dinner table, or take part in a group activity. Friendly folks should have no trouble making new friends aboard the ship.
Best cruises for seniorsWhile it’s actually more likely for cruise lines to cater to seniors than other age groups, it’s important to note that there are some cruises that focus on younger families, or other specific groups. Pay attention to the details before you book to ensure that you pick the right cruise for you! For instance, P&O UK offers two adult-only vessels which can be a great option for couples, friends or singles looking to get away from it all.
Lines such as Princess Cruises and Holland America Line provide a relaxing atmosphere with the touch of luxury cruisers desire - both terrific options for seniors. Elegance and simplicity come together on these lines, which offer myriad enrichment programs - not least of which is Holland America’s lauded Culinary Arts Centres.
If you seek a traditional line with options for afternoon tea and ballroom dancing, look no further than Cunard - noted for its exceptional service. For additional options, try the Arcadia, Oriana, or opt for more adventure on the luxurious cruises Silversea or Seabourn. Last but not least, think about taking a World Cruise on one of P&O UK’s adults-only ships.
No matter your tastes or your cruise budget, we have an itinerary for you! Enjoy a well-deserved holiday!
