    I just loved reading about your 1st cruise at the great age of 86. I also have only just tried cruising at 62 and I wish I had discovered how lovely it is earlier in my life and then I could have taken my dear mum on one also. Hope you enjoy many more cruises. Carol Mx.

    Good for you - I take my elderly mother she is 87 this year - thankfully still able to get around without mobility issues - she loves cruising and although she does take other land based holidays from time to time - for both her and I its the safeness of the cruise ships and the comaradarie on board - other passengers generally always have time for a chat to her and show interest - for an older person that means a lot - I hope you manage to take some more cruises as I hope to be taking my dear mum for a few more years to come .

    You should try a Saga cruise. Their ships are not so big, but to my mind this is an advantage. You don't get lost, and you see the same lovely people more often! The staff are specially geared to look after elderly and/or others who are not very mobile. In the buffet, for example, always a smiling face beside you at the right time to take your plate to your table etc. I am only(!) 79, but due to a fall last year am not very secure on my feet and walk with a stick. Everybody was so helpful. I chatted to a lady of 92 on her first cruise! The food is excellent, as is the entertainment, and the best perk of all as far as we were concerned was being picked up at home by car and taken to the port, and brought all the way home again at the end.

    Thank you so much for writing the review. I'm still trying to persuade my Mum to come on a cruise with us, she is 87 too, so perhaps this will persuade her.

    My dad is 88 and my sister and I are taking him on his first cruise next month. Last time he sailed was to Normandy in 1944 and from Italy in 1946 so he should hopefully find an improvement in the class of cabins since then! We shall be going on my old favourite, Queen Victoria. Glad you enjoyed your cruise and may you sail on many more.
