55+ Crusing - Hope others are mad at us

We are in our late 60's and after 55 were finally able to afford to cruise and enjoy ourselves many many times.At times we are seated by accident(I assume) with much younger people and can see how they look at us. Most times the maitre d' suggests a change of table or we just ask to be seated alone. Similar to how young people are polite but don't really want to talk to you "just as a person" at a party.


It just feels badly when I read reviews about Celebrity and it is mentioned again and again that everyone was old. I understand but it is almost like we shouldn't go because we are old. I am still going to cruise and hope others still do.


You never think you are going to be so old that you don't belong! It just happens.


This makes me feel awful!  I’m one of those that complained about everyone being so old on a Princess cruise and was worried about that on our upcoming first Celebrity cruise. I didn’t think the older people didn’t belong, I felt like I didn’t. And mainly because the older the passengers, the less activities are offered at night.  Btw, I’m no spring chicken!  Lol I was in my early-mid 40’s when we sailed on Princess. Now I’m 52 and dh is 55. 


Go and have the time of your life!!
