Singles Cruises for Seniors? Too Much Fun? Or Too Much Hassle? | Senior Travel | Scoop.it
Single seniors enjoy cruising, too. In my work as a travel writer, I get more questions from single senior women than from any other group of readers, and those questions generally involve cruises and related topics, such as ...
Elizabeth Avery's insight:

We recommend river cruises as these smaller boats can access remote, adventuresome destinations and increasingly offer select tours with no single supplement. Where available, a river cruise billed as for "solos" rather than "singles" is likely to feel less pressured since individual travelers may or may not be looking for a significant other.

-*+We often hear that the senior discount is dead. In the travel world, this is far from true. In fact, it's relatively easy to find senior discounts on hotels, museum admissions, car rentals and outdoor activities.
Elizabeth Avery's insight:

For top solo travel deals, always compare alternate general discounts with those available only to seniors as they may be even better.

Once upon a time, travel providers really catered to seniors, offering substantial discounts to their silver flyers.
Elizabeth Avery's insight:

Senior discounts: Peter Greenberg cites only one airlines, Southwest, as providing discounts. However, from car rentals, trains to hotels, others may offer special pricing for seniors.  However, always check to see if other discounts, such as seasonal promotions, are better and whether they can be used along with a senior discount.
