Senior Cruises to the Caribbean


Many seniors like the ease and luxury of seniors cruises to the Caribbean. There’s nothing like the simplicity of a cruise, traveling in luxury from port to port, disembarking for a short time on a variety of islands in the Caribbean. You’re surrounded by the sun and the sea, stay in one room on board, only have to pack and unpack your suitcase once, enjoy wonderful food, drink, entertainment and endless activities you can participate in.  Whatever activity you choose you can enjoy or you can just sit on the deck and enjoy the cruise. And, if you’re a senior, you’ll find that many cruise line companies cater to the senior traveler.

Cruises for seniors companies also consider senior accessibility travel issues and make it easy for people who may be disabled in some way. If you have mobility, hearing or visual disabilities, cruise companies have solved the problem for you. Cruise ships are now wheelchair accessible, so nobody is excluded from a vacation in the Caribbean seas or wherever you choose to travel on a cruise.

Staff on cruise ships are professional and there are plenty of staff around to help you and attend to your needs. For instance, if you have specific dietary needs or wish to eat kosher foods, the spectacular dining on a cruise ship can and will accommodate your dietary requirements. Let the cruise company know ahead of time your special needs – when you book the cruise.

Merit vacations is now offering a special cruise on the luxurious Celebrity cruise ship the “Silhouette” for 12 nights for $2,350. Their Southern Caribbean “No Fly”Cruise vacation to the south Caribbean, departs March 4, 2012. You’ll depart from Cape Liberty, N.J., and dock at Philipsburg, St. Maarten;  St. Johns, Antigua;  Castries, St. Lucia;  Basseterre, St. Kitts; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas and back to Cape Liberty, N.J. This 12 night Caribbean cruise for seniors includes round trip coach transportation from several locations, one night of hotel near Cape Liberty, New Jersey, all taxes, gratuities and fees, splendid gourmet dining, enrichment programs aboard the cruise ship and 12 nights in a balcony stateroom. This is a cruise deal for seniors for sure. This price is based on double occupancy, so go on this senior cruise with your husband, your wife, or your friends. If you don’t have anyone to travel with and don’t want to pay the single supplement, some cruise lines will be able to accommodate you and find someone of your own gender to share the room with. Cruises also offer you a great opportunity to meet like-minded people in the same age groups with similar interests in senior travel destinations.

Other senior cruises to the Caribbean are offered by such cruise lines as Princess Cruises, Carnival Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line and the Holland America Line.

You can search online for senior cruises and even book online or speak with your travel agent.
