Default Average age for Oceania cruisers??

We have traveled Royal Caribbean on Mariner of the Seas and loved everything available for our family to see and do on the ship. We have also done Carnival and were not really impressed with the ship. We are just trying to determine if the Oceania Cruise Line is for couples who are near retirement age or already there. We are trying to pick the right cruise line to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary too! Any suggestions or ideas greatly appreciated.

Most people are in the 60+ range ..some older some younger
There is no children's programs or formal nights, no vegas type shows ...pretty quiet in the evenings, small casino, limited smoking areas ..only 2, open dining

If you want port intensive, small ship experience you might enjoy O

Did you have lots to do on the ship in the evening? I have heard the Oceania lines don't have much of a nightlife though...What are your thoughts?

Depends on how many things you want to do at night

If it is port intensive cruise most people retire early.
They have an evening show usually 9:45pm, music/dancing in Horizons before/ after the show, Martinis has piano player, 11 pm the have Name that tune or other games, small casino
If you want lots of entertainment O is not for you

My mom is 55 and she said she was the youngest on the ship when she went. I just turned 30 and my husband 31 so I KNOW we will be the youngest on the Med. cruise in July. Oh well

Cruise ships go by the laws of the United States.
and your point?
no one asked about drinking age
