Multi-Week Cruises for Seniors Over 60
If you’re retired, you have the luxury of time since you’re not hustling to get to work every day and you no longer have to request time off or only get one week of vacation at a time. Instead, you can sail away for weeks on end. We offer itineraries that are two to three weeks long and take you around some of the most exciting and exotic locations in the world.
Get away for 15 nights on a Best of India & Southeast Asia cruise that takes you to the wonders of Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore as well as the vibrant cities along the western India, such as Mumbai and Goa.
Another one of our longer bucket list cruises for seniors over 60 to add to their repertoire is an Arabian Sea and Suez Canal cruise. Experience the most beautiful parts of the Middle East before sailing through Egypt along the Suez Canal and finishing your cruise in the Mediterranean.
If you’ve always dreamed of South America, take a 15-night Chile to San Diego cruise that visits ports of call along the western edge of South and Central America. Extend your vacation even longer with a fun City Stay in San Diego during which you can explore the historic Gaslamp Quarter, dine at beachfront restaurants, and enjoy the antics of animals at the San Diego Zoo.
Dreaming of Europe? Get away to Spain, Italy, and the Canary Islands on a transatlantic cruise itinerary that sails through the region while your ship travels between Florida and Rome.
A 15-night transatlantic cruise typically starts with seven days crossing the Atlantic Ocean before arriving to Tenerife, where you can easily tick off your list of things to do in the Canary Islands. You will spend two more days at sea before stopping in Mediterranean ports like Palma de Mallorca, Barcelona, Provence, Florence, and Rome.
For an itinerary that will truly let you unwind and relax, book our 19-night Tahiti, Bora Bora, and Hawaii cruises. You’ll sail across the Pacific between Sydney or Melbourne in Australia, and Honolulu, Hawaii, stopping at the beautiful islands of French Polynesia along the way plus have ports of call in New Zealand.
Cruises For Seniors Over 60 Who Have Been There, Done That
If you’ve already explored the ancient sites of Rome, sailed into the caldera of Santorini, marveled at the architectural curves of the Taj Mahal, and enjoyed a show in the Sydney Opera House, then it’s time to get off the beaten path a bit more with one of these unforgettable bucket list cruises for seniors over 60. Here are a couple ideas:
If you missed the era of backpacking through Southeast Asia as a youth, fear not – you can still explore the wonders of Southeast Asia, but don’t need to worry about rowdy hostels. Instead you’ll be exploring this gorgeous region of the world in style and comfort when you cruise there. Our Southeast Asia cruise itineraries sail to beloved Southeast Asia destinations like Halong Bay (via Hanoi) and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, Bangkok and Phuket in Thailand, and alluring Singapore.
Looking for somewhere totally off the grid? Head to the Galapagos Islands, located off the coast of Ecuador. You’ll sail through an ecological wonderland unlike anywhere else on earth, where endemic species are numerous, sea mammals swim curiously and unafraid alongside humans, and Galapagos tortoises live to be 100 (or older!).
Turn this into even more of an enviable bucket list cruise by booking your Galapagos cruise on Celebrity Flora, the new all-suite ship that was specifically designed for the Galapagos Islands.
If you haven’t made it to Machu Picchu yet, you can also add a land excursion to Machu Picchu into your Galapagos Vacation Package.
Cruise in an Edge-Class Suite
Bucket list worthy cruises for seniors over 60 don’t have to be just destination related. Consider the mode of transportation as well and where you’ll be residing on the ship.
On our new Celebrity Edge ship (and subsequent Edge-class ships) you’ll be able to travel like you never have before by booking yourself into one of our incredible suites, like the Edge Villas or Iconic Suites.
The incredible Edge Villas have a loft bedroom over the spacious living area. Every part of the suite overlooks the ocean from the two-story windows. Step outside onto your expansive terrace where you will find a plunge pool and comfortable lounge seating. Making the Edge Villas even more spectacular is that they have a second entrance that connects right into the Retreat, an exclusive area just for Suite Class guests with its own pool area, bar, and sun deck, and lounge.
If you’d prefer a luxurious suite that doesn’t have stairs, check into one of the Iconic Suites, the largest suites on board which have a massive outdoor living space with a sun bed, hot tub, and lounge seating.
