Try Fred.Olsen also. They offer mostly 'no-fly' cruises which your mum may prefer. They're a traditional cruiseline that cater for the over 50's best & their prices are very reasonable too.

My bet is fred olsen. Most other ships are too big and confusing. They are really a very good line especially the black watc.

Hello, I would suggest the QE2, your mum will love it - also, if she likes to dance, the QE2 has dance partners always available for the single lady or gent. This is something that is not offered much these days but is expected on the QE2. The ship is a little out-of-date these days compared to the modern superliners but that is to the good as Cunard now offer cruises on her at very silly low prices these days. The QE2 is still the most famous ship in the world and thought to be the finest by those that have never been on her. In certain respects she is still the finest and in every port she visits she is given respect by all the other ships she meets. A few years ago we were lucky enough to cruise a sector of her Round-the-World cruise and we were saluted when we arrived in the ports and played out by a band when we departed - the passengers lined the rails and waived goodbye and for those few minutes each time we felt like royalty!! Next year the QE2 will be sailing around the mediterranean from May through to October - always out of Southanpton and returning to Southampton - thus no need to fly, which is a real bonus! Plus you can pack whatever you like and take your own car to the port. Forget the rest - go with Cunard who are still the best, even though Carnival are her new masters.

Just back from a cruise on the QE2 with my Mother-in-law and it was excellent for her & I would highly suggest this ship.

Royal Princess

By Emily Watts

 Last week I was lucky enough to experience Royal Princess which was also my first time on a Princess ship. It was everything I expected and more. as soon as we got on board I was impressed with the decor and the grandness, it really is a beautiful ship. Our cabin was located on Baja deck B215 which had a balcony and for two sharing it is very spacious. Princess prides themselves on the beds and it was probably one of the most comfortable ones I have ever slept on. After embarkation, we...

How Fred Olsen compares

By Charlene Thackeray

Charlene Thackeray's blog

We are recently back from our first Fred Olsen cruise.Whilst this is the smallest ship we have been on as a family there were lots of great things and a few not so great things for us. We knew there would not be much for Charlie on board however he had a great time with all his new friends from the Entertainments team. I can honestly say the entertainment team were really friendly and put on some great shows. I loved how the stage rose in the Neptune lounge making it a great area for lots of ...

Two nights on Indy..

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison Ranaldi's blog

Last week I spent two nights on the newly revamped Independence of the Seas.We sailed from Southampton in glorious sunshine to Le Havre and back. This was my third time on board this ever-popular ship and I was keen to see the changes to her after a big refit. We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 which had everything we needed for a comfortable break. I’m not generally a fan of mini-cruises. They offer an excellent way for someone like myself to see the ships but I do not think they are a g...
