No your travel agent is wrong there are all age groups on Ocean village from young to well past retirement age. You will have a great time i am about to go back for the 10th time. I did this itinery last september all ports are within walking distance to shops,beaches etc and taxis are very cheap if you want to go out further. You will both have a great time.

My wife & I did the greek islands last August and having been on O.V.9 times before thought that the Greek islands cruise was very good compares very well with the Carribean. The only walking there is, is from the port terminal to the ship in Crete about 200yards. the rest is up to you.You walk when you want to.I am over 70 Have difficulty walking but really enjoy the cruises. Go and ENJOY.

Go for it. OV attracts ALL ages. We did the Olives and Ouzo cruise in May 2007 (during the school holidays). There were loads of people in their 60s and 70s who had cruised several times with OV. Mykonos is a long way and isn't a nice walk from the port to the town. Limassol is too far to walk but there is a courtesy bus or public transport bus. We really enjoyed our cruise and I'm sure you will to.

Head to the Caribbean for some...

By Rosie Taylor

Are you heading to the Caribbean for some winter sun?At this time of year when its cold and wet we start to think about sunnier climates!The Caribbean is a great place to travel to during the winter months. In fact, the sun shines for most of the year and the temperatures stay consistent.Last year the Caribbean was hit by 2 massive hurricanes, Irma and Maria. Some islands were very badly damaged. Most have managed to re build the resorts and are back to normal. The cruise ports are very much ...

Lisa West's blog

Just before Christmas I was invited to Birmingham Airport to take a look around Emirates Airbus 380 while she was doing her very quick turnaround from landing to take off.It seems each time the airbus lands at Birmingham it brings lots of joy and excitement! Our first sighting was just after 11 when we saw her circling the skies waiting for her landing slot, the view from the conference room was great and she came into land right in front of us! I must admit I am definitely not a plane spo...

Well as a mother of four kids I am firmly in the no camp but there are others who are firmly in the yes camp.Me, my four kids, and my DadI think that there are arguments for both sides on this and the main one is the behavior of the children at hand.My children are no angels and they are warned when we go away that they are to treat their elders with respect and to not cause issues with other passengers, however there are times when some of the other passengers should also be responsible for ...
