SENIOR CITIZEN TRAVEL: SAILING

Mar 12th, 2012 | By James E Becker | Category: Senior Travel

Seniors Go Sailing and Love It

There are many quality cruise lines today and Cunard is one of them.  It seems like so many people that I meet who have been on vacation recently tell me that they took a cruise.  Most have been to the Caribbean and a few on to other places like the Mediterranean, the South Pacific and even some around the world. Cunard Line is a British-American owned shipping company based in Southampton, England. It has been a leading operator of passenger ships on the North Atlantic for over a century. The Golden Age of Ocean Travel for seniors is here today.

I just received a brochure from Cunard whose motto reads “The Most Famous Ocean Liners in the  World.” Seniors are invited to “feel famous” on a spectacular Mediterranean Cruise aboard Queen Elizabeth. Many cruise lines are running specials and Cunard is no exception.  Cunard Line offers an unparalleled experience sailing on The Most Famous Ocean Liners in the World – Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria.

For over 170 years, Cunard voyages have epitomized the grandeur and elegance of ocean travel. They offer seniors a savings of up to $800 per stateroom plus complementary Balcony Upgrades and can reserve a Balcony for the price of an Oceanview stateroom. They offer a Red Carpet to the Mediterranean with what they call the Cunard tradition of impeccable service and refined elegance.

The Mediterranean cruises includes Italy, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Bulgaria, the Ukraine, Israel and Egypt. Cunard calls these areas “Jewels in the Mediterranean Crown.” And of course there is an unrivaled Elegance at Night and many seniors say what they enjoy most is the cocktail hour into the wee hours. Nightlife brims on board the Cunard lines with the casino, drama, comedy and music that animate stages.

Fly-Cruises, World Cruises and Transatlantic Cruises
On a fly-cruise, you fly to your embarkation port, where you will be transferred to join the ship. Once your luggage is checked in at the airport, they will take care of it and deliver it to your stateroom.  Fly-cruises give seniors the opportunity to maximize time in the chosen destination.

World Cruises give seniors three months on board a Cunard Queen. Transatlantic Cruises enable seniors to experience cruising aboard Queen Mary 2. Sail between Southampton and New York, and experience unforgettable days at sea to revel in activities and fascinating enrichment programmes.

Of course you can always choose  from a selection of shorter cruises on one of their luxury ocean liners to celebrate a special occasion. With so much to do on board and interesting places to visit, these cruises are ideal for a long weekend or as an alternative to a city break.
