I would say anywhere between 50 and 80. Average might be in their late 60s to early 70s. We have never had a problem waiting for someone on tours.But i would say thay all must be fitt
But i would say thay all must be fittI was just concerned that we might feel a bit out of place in our late 30's. We'll have no problem if the pace is quick
Age can limit activity, but at 63, I bike 120 miles a week. I don't get left behind.Age is just a number.... In the past three years I've done three trips with my dad who is in his early 60's, two to Europe and one to China. He's getting a bit slower with arthritis but he can still move when he needs to (traffic in Beijing is crazy).
Age does influence things like music preferences and interests. I am sure that I would not be able to discuss most of the popular music today.
Older people sometimes are a bit jaded. My Daughter asked me if I was interested in going to DisneyWorld, and I had no interest. Been there, done that.
My Son and Daughter have encouraged us to travel with them on cruises, and we have been on one with my Daughter's family and Son and friend, as well as a second cruise with my Son and his friend. We do all the same things they do, except we don't go to the casino.
We just returned from a Vantage cruise from Budapest to Bucharest. The food service was great. The planned excursions were fun and it was nice to have everything so well organized for us. The Hotels Vantage uses are 4 to 5 star in the city centers. The big difference from a regular cruise is the Program director to guide and entertain you every day. We have been on over 60 cruises and really enjoyed the river cruise experience with Vantage. We had either a half or full day organized excursion each day. I'm sure you will be happy with Vantage.Gangway, we are considering the "Springtime in Eastern Europe & the Black Sea" cruise for next year on Vantage, going from Budapest to Bucharest. If this was the cruise you were on, I would be interested in hearing more about it. How was the weather in May?Was the boat the MS River Odyssey? If so, what was it like? If you get a chance, please post or contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.Many thanks.
I bet you pay a lot more than you complained about on Princess PhyldonWhat is a Princess loyalist doing on a river cruise message board????Perhaps we'll sail together again next year!!! I doubt that the expense of a river boat cruise will come anywhere near what we spent on the Crown Princess.
