Oldies

Hi, this may sound silly but as first time cruiser, and sailing on the Splendor Singapore to Sydney will we feel too old...

we are young at heart but in the senior category ...will we look out of place...we love shows, eating and don’t mind a cocktail or two...

i love watching other people’s video’s but everyone seems so young...will my sister and I be the two elderly ladies having fun...

just a thought, not a problem...thank you all...

No, not there, or anywhere. Theres a lot of us in here...all over as a matter of fact. Doing all kinds of stuff. I think "we" appreciate things more. Being first time cruisers, there are probably lots of things that will be new to you...even confusing...ask questions, you'll get answers. But the cure for all that confusion is.....cruise more....heheheh...good luck and enjoy it...ALL of it....

thank you Yankee47..looking forward to it so much...

You will enjoy yourselves. Enjoy at your leisure and there will no way you will feel out of place.

We started cruising later in life than some, but that sure hasn't stopped us. Since retirement we try to sail more often and we are usually on Carnival, which is noted for the young crowd it tends to draw. Even if (and it is somewhat unlikely) you are the two "old ladies" having fun on the ship, you"ll probably get bit by the cruising bug and start being the experienced one on the ships in the future.

Welcome to the wonderful world of cruising.

P.S. What Yankee47 said is so true.

I have been from one of the youngest on a ship to being one of the old timers (I'm tail end of baby boomers, but I retired for 6 years ago) On the 3 night party cruise I was an old timer, on the 14 night transatlantic I was a youngster. I had fun on all of the cruises even when I was one of the older guest.

You will have a great time Big Smile

Not even a little bit. Have a great time!

We have always noticed a well mix of ages and have never felt out of place. We find ourselves talking to younger couples with little kids and older couples the age of our parents and age has never been a factor. On a cruise everyone is equal ... or most everyone ... there is always those that like looking at the sky (if you get my drift) but those are found everywhere and anywhere. Relax and enjoy the cruise. It will be awesome and that looks like a great itinerary.

Thank you all...as you all say, have fun and enjoy...I’m sure we will...

we are polar opposites so we often are doing different thing, she is chatty I sit back more and that helps us mix with different people....

Well, Monique and I are in our 60's. My sister is 68. On our last family cruise, with the kids as well..... we closed down the bars, and partied with other "seniors" long after the young pups called it a night. You will be fine. Enjoy yourselves. Meet new people, make close friends and if you want to--dance like no one is watching.

[thank you Johngold,

iwe will aim to have as much fun as you did...

dancing on tables is out, I guess...

do they have karaoke on ship...quote=Johngold]
