A cruise is a great vacation, where you have perfect views, food served all day, entertainment for all ages and there are different price ranges. Cruises have gone to the next level by defining a cruise for a specific need. Now you can search for cruises according the type of traveller you are.
The retired couple
This particular cruise caters for a specific age group. You get two types, and they both include no children on board. The first one is an over 50’s sexy cruise, it includes luxurious accommodation with exciting experiences and entertainment. Meeting new people on this cruise is easy and fun, you will probably find yourself dining with new friends every night. The second type of cruise is for anyone over 21 years old. It is more traditional with professional dance classes, classic romantic films and themed evenings. An interesting fact is that 70% of over 50’s believe they are more adventurous now than they were in their younger days.
