Thanks for calling me old
April last year we sailed from Crete on the Ocean village the first week sailed to Venice lots of pensioners the secound on to Eygyt it was a much younger group of passengers
Last October sailed on The Oceana and was surprised at the number of younger cruisers in their thirties.
This year sailed on the Independence of the seas in late January/Feb 18 nights around the western med most of the passengers were old, Then March on The Azura from Barbados most were middle aged, next trip is Crown Princess from Quebec to Miami and I expect an older group.
It is the time of the year and the itinerary on most ships that affects the passenger mix unless you are sailing Saga
