This is all new to us. We've done a lot of traveling but never a cruise. So not sure where to start in planning one. But even though we love our kids, we definitely know that we don't want to be surrounded by somebody else's kids on our romantic cruise adventure. Any tips on cruise lines,etc. that are for older adults, ie. over 50?

Hi and "welcome aboard",

a good starting point is to let us know what you expect from a cruise vacation, what is important to you (e.g. gourmet food, high-class entertainment, sports activities etc.). Also, what is not important. Do you enjoy dressing up or would you rather prefer a more casual cruise? What destinations are you interested in? Would you prefer a cruise on a large ship with up to 3,000 (or more) fellow passengers, offering an abundance of choices, but certainly not an intimate experience? Or rather a small ship? A "mainstream" cruise or rather a niche market (e.g. destination-focused or soft-adventure) or even a premium- or luxury-style cruise?

As you can see, there are lots of questions you have to ask yourself in order to get the maximum out of your cruise.

Dawn and Mike,
I second Raoul's comments. There are a number of cruise ships that would qualify as perfect for the over 50 set. But, unless we know a litle bit more about your personal preferences and the cruise experience you are looking for, it is difficult to narrow the field. One suggestion I can make, however, no matter what ship you select - if it is within your budget, opt for a balcony cabin. There is nothing more romantic on earth than enjoying a private breakfast on your verandah or enjoying the solitude of each others company as you watch the sunset.
Nancy
