Are you in the Over 50s bracket and are you wondering what is a good holiday for the Over 50s?
Because we (Andy and Julie) are over 50 years old and that means we will have plenty in common. Things like music, significant dates in history, freedom from kids etc.
Most people over 50 have done a lot of the usual beach holidays and general travel stuff and are looking for something different and many have a bucket list of things they want to tick off.
Unlike many years ago the over 50’s are fitter and more adventurous than our parents and grandparents were and now have the opportunities to travel the world more easily.
The realisation that it only seems minutes ago since we were leaving school before life happened and understand more that we only have one life so should therefore enjoy every day is something we can all relate to. We all have a few years under the belt and many experienced how life can grind away at your dreams then before you know you’re looking back and saying “Where did the last 10, 20, 30 or so years go”?
We still have many things we want to do, places we want to visit and experiences we want to live. With all this in mind it’s why we know that are cruises are great for ‘our generation’.
We think our cruises are better that the ones on big cruise ships although we fully understand why some people enjoy those cruises. Personally, and this is just our humble opinion, we think they are just floating holiday camps and are more interested in herding people about whilst extracting as much of their hard earned cash as quickly as possible. The big cruise ships take you to places where they bundle you off and have strict rules about returning for a certain time. This is fully understandable because of the schedule they have but our cruises offer great flexibility whereby departure time can be changed to suit guests even to the point of staying another night at certain locations if people want to stay longer.
This is something that seems to happen a lot when we visit Poros. I think this is because there are some lovely beaches there and it’s so tempting to have a lazy beach day slotted in between the week of sailing that guests find it hard to resist.
It is definitely the people you’re with that make all the difference to your precious time away. We know what to do and the places to go that will suit our guests in most of the places we visit.
From fascinating history to awe-inspiring natural wonders and the chance to learn something new, shared experiences in good company are something you’ll never forget. We love to share the journey of discovery, exploring new lands and experiences with you.
