Seasoned on the Seas

We all know the cruise holiday stereotypes – from pampered, activity-filled lap-of-luxury pleasures to cosy cabins and quirky characters. If you fancy the idea of a scenic, ease-and-comfort-oriented adventure in a mellow environment, do keep an open mind, because river or ocean cruise packages can really hit the spot when it comes to mature holidays.

By the time you’ve reached the age of 50, you’ve probably taken a holiday or ten. You’ve done the adventure, the road trips with screaming children, and you deserve something more relaxing. If you’re already a cruise fan, you know what this time-tested travel mode has to offer – comfort, activities aplenty, all-you-can-eat-and-drink indulgences, and that special feeling of being out at sea – but if you haven’t had the pleasure, have look at the many choices available in today’s world of specialized travel. It’s not all shuffleboard and Broadway anymore, although that is available if you fancy it.

Britain has much to offer in the way of water-travel holidays, and if you choose a journey that departs from the UK you’ll also save money on airfare.

Some of the distinct advantages of “cruising”:

Guaranteed bang for your buck. With so much included in the price – meals, on-board performances, and more – your holiday budget goes a long way.

Organized with you in mind. These cruise lines know what they’re doing when it comes to tailoring the atmosphere and activities for an over-50s travel package – without making it stale.

You’ve arrived at activity central (with the option, of course, of all-day deck-chair novel-reading). There are so many on-board and onshore activities that you’ll never get bored, and you won’t have to organize anything yourself.

Hassle-free port-hopping. Throw your itinerary and route map out the window – you’ll simply wake up in an amazing new place, refreshed and ready to explore. And you only have to pack once!

The all-inclusive prices make it easy to plan, and considering you won’t need flights for ex-UK cruises, they’re a steal (particularly if you look online for cruise deals). Ten days navigating the breathtaking Scandinavian fjords starts at £549, another ten sailing Iberia starts at £729.
