I'm sure they will be fine particularly if they go off and do their own thing. There are special arrangements and gatherings for single people on board and the camaraderie they will find will amuse them more than somewhat. With regard to Silverjet, I have often thought of using it so we would be very interested to hear a report........I'm sure you'll all enjoy yourselves ....Ida Dow.

May I first comment on your description "old fogies" which I presume you are referring to anyone on the cruise that is over the age of 60. My wife and I find that people of all ages can have a good holiday together on board a ship. On our last cruise we made good friends with a couple much younger than our selves and had a brilliant time. It all depends on what you are looking for on a cruise holiday. We have been cruising for 15 years and our aim on every cruise is to have a good time. I would suggest that your sons aim should be the same and not depend on just meeting girls to have a good cruising holiday By the way we have sons over 40 and do not consider our selves as old fogies. We often go to the disco until 2-3 in the morning. Let yourselves go the Halstead family and enjoy the cruise .

Does Your Cruise Loyalty Club ...

By Collette Apak

Collette Apak's blog

All cruise lines are keen to get customers back on board their ships once they have taken their first cruise. To help this they all have their individual loyalty schemes, most of which were in place many years before the likes of Tesco Clubcard points and the Boots Advantage card. Most loyalty tiers are measured on how many nights you’ve spent on board or the number of cruises taken. The benefits vary hugely between each cruise company. Some of the benefits for repeat customers include ...
