Avoid the smaller ships such as Fred Olsen's ships, Ocean Majesty, Calypso etc. which offer a really high standard of customer care, but unfortunately for over 50s (or on some cruises over 70s). Unless you love children you probably should avoid Ventura, judging by the reviews!

If your looking to cruise from the UK, then Royal Caribbean Voyager & Freedom Class are probably your best choice. If however your more ambitious & wish to cruise from the USA, Florida in particular, then Carnival 'Fun Ships' are worthy of consideration.........Wilba.

If you're wanting a fun ship but also want some of the formalness of a traditional cruise without the stuffiness, don't discount Thompson's ships. My niece and daughter( ages 21 and 18 at the time) loved the Spirit. Definately agree to avoid the smaller ships, Hope you have a good holiday!

Hi there, I am 28 and my husband is 30. For our honeymoon and first voyage we travelled on the Cunard's Queen Mary 2 from Southampton to New York (6 nights) and then 4 nights in New York and fly home. We thoroughly enjoyed the QM2 and have booked to go on the Iberian Odessey in July with them. We thought that the price was very reasonable and the QM2 catered for all our needs. It really depends what you like..... Most days we got up early, went to breakfast, walked on deck, went to the planetaium to watch a viewing, went for a swim/ spa etc..... had lunch, walked around the shops and then evening arrives and you get ready for the evening meal! There are many bars on the QM2, but we enjoyed ''The Golden Lion'' Pub. It was a great way to meet people and we made friends with a couple in there 80's who we keep in touch with now! The pub had a pianist that played nightly, quizzes, karaoke, music etc (just like a local pub). There is also a night club on board and this was great! (wide variety of ages went here, it got really busy). There is a champagne bar, casino (which is good to watch people spending hard earned cash..... a lot of it!) cigar lounge, library the list goes on........ I would say that you need to research various different cruise, but we met people of a similar age to ourselves and also other ages.... nevertheless we had a great time with them! One of the joys of cruising is that you get to meet people from diffrent back grounds, ages, lifestyles, cultures and i believe that this adds to the holiday....... I have only ever been on the QM2 so therefore maybe a little biased... but age makes no difference to me, or to many of the other cruisers! Hope you have a wonderful time wherever you decide to go and with whichever company....... xxxx .
