55+? Sail and Save!
Seniors with a passion for travel have always found cruising to be an excellent, budget-conscious choice. Cruising makes it possible for seniors on a fixed income to enjoy several destinations for the one price. Many lines recognize that since seniors have more leisure time, they are more apt to prefer a longer sailing. Lines such as Holland America, Princess, Cunard, and Crystal all sail itineraries that vary from the usual 7 days, to world cruises that stay at sea for over 100 nights.
Today's ships offer more than just bingo and shuffleboard for senior cruisers. Enrichment programs, like Cunard's ConneXions or Crystal's Learning Institute, go far beyond giving lecture. They partner with institutions such as Oxford University, The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, Berlitz, and the Society of Wine Educators to bring you language classes, art lessons, wine tastings and much more on board.
