Personally, in my 50's and for my first cruise I would like a bit of pampering and elegance, and not people who's idea of dinner dress is putting on a clean footbal shirt :o) For cruises round the Greek Islands why not look at RCI Spendour of the Seas out of Venice, or a Princess cruise, or if even more upmarket at Celebrity cruises. I just wouldn't want you to be put off cruising for life.

Don't do Spendour of Seas. We were very disappointed. Sailing from Venice was lovely but food was disappointing. Ship is getting tired !

Friends of mine have cruised on Ocean Village both aged 56 and thoroughly enjoyed their time on board, some people prefer the more layed back approach, and i can assure you they dressed very smartly for dinner and there was definately no football shirts to be seen.

I agree with Scalings comment, we are going on our 10th OV cruise soon, have done all the posh ones, and are in our mid 60s, Will not book during school holidays etc. Cabins are larger than many other cruise boats.

It Is an going problem, hygiene on board! And something I hate people not washing hands, on a ship this can cause huge problems, having recently come back from a Celebrity Cruise, I loved the fact they have staff working to make sure you do the basic things! In this day and age it is a sad problem for basic hygiene!It is not something you like to talk about, but were a bunch of germ-laden conveyors of infectious diseases. It doesnt take a rocket scientist to know the s those people you see tr...

I find it hard to believe that given the amount of family friendly cruise options around these days, all of which include swimming pools, some even large scale on board water parks that it’s not compulsory for cruise companies to employ lifeguards, especially when you consider some of the recent tragedies that have occurred.Norwegian Cruise Line have announced that it will be joining Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruise Lines in employing certified lifeguards at all of the family pools acr...
