    "Seize the Day" She Did

    Great-grandmother booked luxury cruise with stranger | Daily Mail Online

    Cheered me up no end reading this.

    Not much to look forwards to in our old age but this couple of oldies are making the best of it.....Taffy

    The couple involved were interviewed on the Vine show this lunch time, both seemed really nice people who got on together, but she did not like cruising enough to try another.
    He is nearly blind and cannot travel on his own, hope they enjoy what time they have together...Taffy
    She didtn like cruising - what ! Maybe it was a polite way to say no, not again.

    But what a wonderful story - I hope I would be brave enough to do something like that in my old age and take a chance on adventure.

    When I read it he took her on a cruise, different papers, different news, still a nice story whoever paid for it.

    Yes, I was thinking that there would be applicants to be his next companion... in fact, if he's paying....there's a whole forum here to ask...
    I've met several carers who've been invited to cruise for free, so that they can help their companion. I'm still in touch with one, and she used to ask for a cabin with a Pulman bunk, so that she had a tiny bit of privacy without her gent tripping over her in the night.

    Such a sweet story and I am sorry she didn't enjoy the cruise. Maybe he will have a few offers from other cruisers after the interview and he will sail again..Carol

    I've just read this lovely story on BBC south news page. I think they're up for more adventures by the sound of it. Good luck to them both.

    All sorts, one could have snored and driven the other one mad, one a night owl and the other an early bird. Eating at different times, sharing a cabin with a stranger, I could go on but you get the general idea.....Carol

    Thanks Taffy. Nice to have a happy story for a change. Surely the photo wasn't of the 90 year old Vera- if so I must get some tips from her!!

    P&O must be delighted to hear they have been described as Luxury. Perhaps not so pleased that Azura was called a ferry and a boat!!

    My friends mother is 92 and still cruising as a single on Fred. She makes friends who she keeps in touch with and has a fine old time.

    I hope I am as fit as her at 92...Carol

    Would be nice if we are all fit and well enough to cruise at 90.
    Or just be happy to be breathing at that age....Taffy
