Seniors Cruise Vacation
Safety Consideration

One of the most common concerns aboard a cruise is safety.

Many senior citizens and their family members are concerned with the health risks of taking a cruise.

If you or your family has fears associated with extended cruises, you may want to seek guidance from your family physician.

With a simple visit, your physician will easily determine whether or not you are up for the voyage.

If and when you receive the okay from your doctor, you can continue to further examine vacationing aboard a cruise ship.

You should be happy to know that each cruise ship has a medical station and doctor onboard.

Choosing Your Cruise Line

Upon getting the green light from your doctor, you are encouraged to examine a number of cruise lines and each of the ships that they have available.

To get started on your search, it is advised that you examine Royal Caribbean Cruises, Celebrity Cruises, Carnival Cruise LinesNorwegian Cruise Line, Holland America and Princess Cruises.

These cruise lines are just a few of the many that service travelers and they are the most popular.

Personally, if you are looking for less playful and more relaxing ship environment, I urge you to check out Holland America, Princess Cruises, Celebrity Cruises or Royal Caribbean International. 

Note: My top pick is Princess Cruises.

Activities Onboard Ship

As you set out to choose a cruise ship, you are encouraged to search for activities and services that you find appealing.

These services are important, because they are often the only way for seniors to find the perfect cruise ship.

While you may not find a cruise ship that is just for senior citizens, you can find several cruise lines that make special accommodations for seniors.

Note: Princess Cruises' average passenger is over sixty years old.

Do not let the absence of specific "seniors ship" stop you from taking a cruise. It does, however, mean that you may need to spend more time researching your available options.

You can and should search for cruise ship activities based on your own preferences. Many seniors prefer cruise ships that offer elegant dining facilities and activities geared towards mature crowds.

If safety is a concern, you may wish to vacation aboard a family fun cruise. These cruises are geared towards individuals and families of all ages.

Many times, a family fun cruise has a more appropriate environment. Seniors, including yourself, may find this environment warm and welcoming. 

Some activities that you will enjoy on board include: 

1. Bingo

2. Reading Rooms

3. Fine Dining

4. Art Shows, Auctions and Galleries

5. Dancing and Family Games

Booking Your Cruise Package

Once you have made the decision to take a cruise ship vacation, you may be excited to book your reservation.

Senior citizens are urged to refrain from purchasing tickets and making travel accommodations on a whim.

This is because many seniors qualify for cruise ship and other travel discounts.

Many of these discounts are offered by AARP, AAA, and other membership clubs. Even if you may not qualify for travel deals and discounts, you should still see if they exist.

Until you look, you never know if you can book a cruise at a discounted price.
