We are preparing ourselves to book a south american cruise in January 2007. (7-10 days) I'd like to find out what is the age mix of the people on those cruises (young / 40's / 50's retired) and if anyone went one one, which one and was it good?
What part of South America are you considering? I don't think you will find many choices under 10 nights, particularly if you plan to round the Cape and pass through the Straits of Magellan. I did a Buenos Aires to Santiago cruise on NCL (14 nights) and then a 12 night cruise on Celebrity round trip from Buenos Aires for Carnival in Rio. In both cases the age range of passengers varied greatly (everything from 30-80). The trip during Carnival was younger overall, with lots of multigenerational families from Chile and Argentina. I know Tom did an Amazon River cruise on Oceania and was convinced he was the youngest person on the cruise (and he's a baby boomer).
I am not quite sure where I want to go... I know that Costa offers some 7 days cruises to South America, but then again, I had a pretty bad experience with them last year, so I am scared of the age mix I will find.. I have a cruise credit to use with them maybe ill use it for a mediterranean cruise...
Anyone knows anoyne that went on South american cuise with Costa? I need to read about it... Any bits and pieces of information I can gather would be great...

I saw the Rotterdam in Curacao and in Aruba two years ago, while I was on the Adventure, it was doing the panama canal itinerary... It's a nice ship... Not really my style though.. I met the Spa Manager on a island tour in Aruba she was british.. Very nice lady married to the captain assistant) Be sure to go visit the spa!!!
