We aren't in the "oldens" category yet, but getting closer. My H and I love the "oldens" we met the most lovely couple last year and continue to have contact with them. I felt like I was sitting with my grandparents and it was LOVELY! The were seasoned cruisers and shared some tips with us. They have even invited us to their home in Fl. We really enjoy our time with the "oldens".
We cruise X and P now because of the calmness and relaxation. I really did my homework before switching cruise lines. What we loved a few years ago, annoys us now.
Different strokes for different folks. Humor is sometimes lost in print.
