My wife and I are considering a Hong Kong to Singapore cruise in Oct 2015. We are interested in understanding the age demographic of Silversea's clientele. We are in our mid forties, active and looking to enjoy a high end vacation.
The last sentence applies to us as well. We just finished SS Cruise #9 a few weeks ago and in fact, did enjoy our high-end vacation!
in our early 40s when it all started...
We always have been among the youngest but have met some "kids" younger than we are, and plenty of folks close in age to us. In fact, we are part of a group of 8 from our Oct 2013 cruise in the same age demographic, who have kept in touch and are planning to meet up in East Africa next June for a safari vacation. So you should find people with similar interests to bond with. We think similar interests are more important than similar ages when it comes to enjoying a luxury vacation together.
Before we started cruising with SS, when we were still in our late 30s, we did a bunch of cruises with Oceania and the demographic was similar. Both lines were full of outgoing, well-traveled people who were fun to spend time with. We have always been quite comfortable with the arrangement.
We usually do our own thing in ports so we can be as active or as lazy as we wish. If you're comfortable with that, SS may be a perfect fit for you. If you want to rely on ship's tours, you may find some of them less active than you'd like. But in our experience, that's a common theme of many ship's tours.
