Cruises for Single Seniors Over 60

cruisesCruises are ideal and adored by the 60-and-over crowd. A senior’s cruise can be one that is tailored for you to meet other singles. On the other hand, some just cater for mature audiences. Overall, the shore excursions, onboard activities, dinners, shows, and customized service make them worthwhile. In fact, some ships are booked fully one or more years in advance before the departure date. If you opt for singles over 60 cruises, it will be a fresh opportunity to learn new things, visit numerous destinations, and meet other senior singles.

How Single Cruises Work

Travel agencies take the responsibility of organizing these voyages and target unmarried seniors. They obtain a block of staterooms from a cruiser and work with the ship cruise director to plan special activities for their group. Some hire single hosts and tour managers. These professionals look after the needs of the passengers in the senior singles group. In some cruises, you will find gentleman hosts. Their job is to dance with single women. Okay, it may sound non-natural at first, but this is an excellent method to dance.

Things to Look for in a Cruise

When deciding on the voyage, remember that you will spend most of your time on the ship. Thus, check if they offer numerous quality enrichment programs onboard to keep your brain active. The destination is equally of great importance. You might have traveled to numerous ports. Consequently, it is worthwhile to look at the diversity of their travel itinerary.

Most members of the 60-crowd may have mobility or health issues. So, the availability of top-notch medical care is essential. Additionally, they should cater for wheelchairs and ensure that moving around is seamless.

When booking, you have the option of occupying a whole stateroom that can fit two people or look for a roommate. Single supplement is expensive and may be boring. The fare could be 100% more than the regular costs.

Also, keep in mind that in most cruises for seniors over 60, the women are more than the men. Thus, it is vital to bring a friend along, just in case. You will also pay less than if you sailed alone.

Reasons to Take Cruises for Seniors Over 60

Leave the Details to Someone Else

Once you settle on the agency and cruise, your work is over. Someone else will handle the rest of the planning and stops along the way. The customer care on most cruises is excellent. The cabin steward and waiters will look after you and your lodgings, always serving you with a warm grin on their face.

Meeting Other Singles

It is not a guarantee to meet the perfect partner on the first voyage. However, you will become acquainted with making new friends from a pool of like-minded people who love to travel. Here you can find a roommate for your future travels.

Fun Onboard Activities

From dancing to lectures, your cruise is the opportune moment to learn. Some ships offer music lessons, painting, or cooking classes.

Overall, cruises for seniors over 60 are excellent. Thus, do not shy away from taking one.

      1. Hi Julie.
        The cruise line that was first to offer the studio cabin was Norwegian. There is no singles supplement, and the cabins are small. Apparently travellers in studio cabins have access to a singles lounge where they can meet others travelling alone. Other cruise companies now offer studios, but I don’t know which ones. Please contact me and we can discuss this further, and maybe exchange travel plans. I want to escape Canada’s cold winter!
