GrandmaB - I'm retired several times over and well into my 60's and began cruising when I was only 9 - I have never had any sort of an age problem with cruising nor have I ever seen one! In Feb 2010 I'm taking my mom (93) by sea and air on a cruise!! She's ready and rarin'to go!! Needless to say - she's never had nor seen an age problem on a cruise!!

Mom's first cruise was back in 1926!!!

Bon Voyage,

BillyBuzzy

We took my wife's mother on the Holiday a few years ago, and she was 77 at the time. She had a great time and really got into the swing of things. We even got her into one of the hot tubs. Age is mostly a mental thing. Hell, I am still a wise guy and occasional prankster at 53, just like I was when I was in high school.

The only thing I notice is that I don't move as quickly as I used to. It just takes me a little longer to do what I want, but I sure haven't given much up. I don't drink like once did, and don't dance all night (I'm through after a few hours), but like Dave said, it is mainly mental. I have met some fantastic people in all age groups on cruises. Guess I'm past middle age now, 56, but on a ship, it truly is like one big family.

I sure ain't as good as I once was.

I have to agree with Tim, the best ship is the next one I'm going on. I have seen every age range on the Carnival ships. To get a little technical though, the Spirit Class ships are the best in my opinion.
