A Mediterranean Cruise is the Perfect Cruise for Seniors
I’m a senior and I like to take cruises as my favorite type of vacation. I know a lot of boomers, retirees and seniors who like to do exactly the same thing. It’s an opportunity to see the world in the luxury of a big ship on the open seas in the company of seniors like myself. A cruise covers a variety of destinations (ports). The ship is like a grand hotel on the ocean and you don’t have the dreary chore of packing and unpacking your suitcase as you travel between places. These are the undeniably the benefits of cruise vacations. It’s an easy way to see the world and there’s plenty of opportunity to meet other seniors and retired boomers. I’d been planning a Mediterranean cruise because I’d never been to Greece and the thought of cruising in the Mediterranean was very appealing. I ended up booking my passage on a dream cruise offered by Princess Cruises to the Eastern Mediterranean. If you’re like me and you’ve been on a Princess cruise before, you may have receive a promotion offered to you by email because you now belong to the Captain’s Circle club. An eastern Mediterranean cruise has been on my bucket list of things to do before I go… and the timing is perfect!
I had spent almost two months researching in detail every place to be visited on the Eastern Mediterranean cruise. I had found out which routes to take to the Parthenon, where to find the palaces in Venice, etc., etc., excursion trips I was going to take at the ports on the Mediterranean cruise vacation. I bought some guide books and booked my Venice hotel.
The cruise is called the “Greek Isles Cruise,” 12 days departing November 5th.
The 12 day Greek Isles cruise begins in Rome (Civitavecchia) and ends up in Venice, Italy, sailing on the Ruby Princess (the name of our cruiseliner) ship. The ports of call include: Naples, Capri and Pompeii, Santorini, Kusadasi in Turkey, Mykonos, Athens, Katakolon, Corfu and Dubrovnik, in Croatia. What better way to explore the treasures of the eastern Mediterranean than this cruise? It is almost perfect! I’ll be going on many of the excursions offered at each port and I hope to meet some other seniors like myself at dinner times or at some of the activities who are interested in joining me on some of the excursions when we stop off at the various ports of call.
This Greek Isles Cruise is costing me about $1,800, but it’s necessary to keep my bucket list on track. A Mediterranean cruise vacation has always been on my bucket list so I’m working to keep up the schedule. A Mediterranean cruise is the perfect cruise for seniors. No doubt. Hoping to meet other like-minded senior travelers like myself as we set sail on the Mediterranean Seas! Happy cruising, everyone!
