    I have been to many European destinations
    with friends from work and had many an enjoyable time.

    But this time the discussion for a destination has turned
    to possibly choosing a cruise. The actual destination has
    not been chosen yet. It could be the Med or the Caribbean.

    But I am reluctant. I always thought that cruises were either
    for the newly wed or the nearly dead.

    What's your opinion?


    Are cruises only for the newly wed and the nearly dead?

    Or can they be considered for people of all ages?

    Find a travel agent who specializes in cruises and tell them what you want and see if they can provide it. They don't charge you, they make their money from the lines.

    Research what they come up with at a site like http://www.cruisecritic.com.

    At that site you can go to "find a cruise" which has an option for singles if you are going as a single and if you are going as a couple why not choose honeymoon to see if different things come up. When they list the cruises that fit your criteria, you can look at the reviews. They also have a "community" where you can join a forum and ask your questions.

    If you love the thought of 24/7 food, the ability to oink down massive amounts of calories at an attractively set trough, a cruise might be for you.

    I think a Med cruise could be a good idea, but like all holidays you will have to choose carefully. I would suggest smaller is better rather than the Butlin's type booze cruise.

    I went on a 2 week Caribbean cruise many years ago and would never do it again. The boat was massive (Grand Princess) and packed full of objectionable, very fat, very noisy Americans who spent the entire time stuffing their faces with bacon. Never again.
