For those who are retired, they do not want to mix and mingle, they do not want a lot of fuss, they don’t want screaming and crying drowning out their dining experience. They’ve been through all that. They’ve raised their kids. They enjoy their grandchildren but relaxation and enjoyment in this stage of life is vital. They’ve worked hard and now it’s time for their hard-earned time and money to work for them.
Imagine a quiet evening of entertainment dancing to your favorite songs with your loved one; rather than flashy lights bouncing to loud music. A fully stacked food buffet bar to accommodate an afternoon nap. That would be ideal.
So many cruises are tailored for the younger crowd with shouting, whining children, but for those who are retired, different features are in order for the more sophisticated. Follow these rules to find the best cruise line.
Rule #1 Find a cruise that does not have kids. Nothing geared for families, i.e. adults only. You’re sure to cut out lot of screaming and crying here. No kids running beneath your feet, no spilled ice creams around the deck; just pure sophistication and pleasant conversation.
Rule #2 Find a cruise that features around-the-clock dining and entertainment. Nothing is worse than having to be on someone’s schedule. Eat at your own leisure. Get in a nap. Eat breakfast when you want to eat breakfast. Relax in warm tide pools late a night.
Rule #3 Find a cruise that has classic music; music from when “music was really music.” Check out ahead of time whether a club and bar are a part of the cruise’s itinerary. If so, opt out of this cruise line. This is sure disaster geared towards loud, young and gaudy singles.
Rule #4 Sophistication is key. Aim for true entertainment. Quiet dining, a leisurely stroll, some shopping, dancing, and massages are ideal. Younger crowds with families will not seek these forms of entertainment when choosing a cruise line.
Rule #5 Find a cruise going to far away tropical places. These cruise lines are not suited for families with little kids. The warm weather is fantastic for arthritis and other ailments. Not to mention that these places were suffered for closer locations when you took family vacations.
Rule #6 Find a cruise with fine dining. Families are sure to avoid fine dining as they are scared their little ones will ultimately embarrass them with crying, spilled food, and weird things they may come out of their mouths.
Rule #7 Find a cruise geared towards a retiree’s pay. Discounts are essential at this stage of life. With inflation going through the roof and money losing its value, it’s ever so important finding a cruise worthwhile.
You can’t go wrong with a cruise line geared towards retirees. If you’re going to spend your money, you might as well spend it on something you’re going to enjoy. Do not take a cruise merely for the sake of taking it. It’s your money. Use it wisely.
