It's the standard rule for cruise ships ... the shorter the cruise, the younger the age demographic.
Even on my 35-day cruise on the Statendam last year ... we had quite a few people younger than me on that sailing (I'm 53). Yes, there were some very old ones as well ... old in age, but young at heart.
As long as the passengers are friendly, I personally could care less about their chronological age. In fact, I've found many of the older passengers to be among the most interesting. They are generally very well traveled, and if you sit and talk with them, you'd find that they do have some absolutely amazing stories to tell!

Rita no truer words were ever spoken. Our first cruise was in 1985 and we went to the Western Caribbean, we sat with older folks and learned sooooo much. Each cruise we try to sit and talk to someone with expreiences to savor. Now we are the old folks and you know what the younger set come and sit and talk with us and we share with them
