Multi cruiser, ditto what DeeDee said for me. We are in our 60s and have sailed three times on HAL, the first time when we were in our 50s. We have never been even slightly bored. It is impossible for me to see how you could be.
We have been on some short cruises with other lines in the Caribbean where there were lots of drunken 20 and 30 somethings. That was both boring and disgusting to me.
As for people dying, a large ship is like a small town it is not, nor has it ever been unusual for 2 people to die on a two week cruise. Very common, just as it would be in a town of similar size. Most ships have cooler storage capacity for at least 6 bodies.
As DeeDee said, to each his own. I'm sure you'd be much happier on the wet Tee shirt type cruise. That's no reason to denigrate those of us who have graduated from that.
Landlocked in Denver, but cruisin every chance we get.

I have to agree with DeeDee and richstacy I was not bored at all on our
Hal cruise. We spent each late evening in the Northern Lights Disco until
the wee hours and what was so great was having the 40's & 50's+ crowd
dancing to rap with the 20's crowd and the 20's crowd dancing disco with
the 40's and 50's+ crowd. We are in our 40's and love crusing with Hal, I
too have moved beyond the wet t-shirt contests even though I still have the
body to win!!
