Cruise Vacations : A Great Holiday For Senior Citizens

By Sali Winchester

Senior cruises have changed quite dramatically in recent years and there is now plenty more on offer than just bingo nights, slow dances and afternoons on the deck. All the major operators run cruises specifically aimed at senior citizens and you can rest assured that there will be plenty of exciting routes to choose from, including the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.

As for entertainment, there is sure to be an abundance of options included that will ensure every day of your holiday is packed-full of excitement. These include activities like swimming and yoga, as well as cabaret and shopping. If you are planning your first cruise and need special assistance it is essential that you inform the cruise company prior to booking your ticket so they can assist you. You will find staff and crew to be extremely helpful on board any ship

Royal Caribbean cruises and Princess Cruises are especially well known for catering to senior travellers and those with disabilities. When it comes to all-important food, all the main cruise operators provide healthy dining options to meet the needs of their passengers including gluten-free and vegetarian. Carnival and Princess cruises also give their passengers the opportunity to choose from healthy-options, such as low-fat and low-carb meals.

Proving immensely popular on senior cruises are the educational courses and lectures that are often so well attended. You will find a whole host of interesting subjects to choose from. Often known as ‘enrichment programmes’, some of the more common topics include music, history, languages and cooking.

Being at school while at sea will certainly be an inspiring experience. It is always a good idea to take part in as many of these programmes as possible, as not only will you be learning something new, but it is also a great way to meet like-minded cruisers.
