Is There A New Younger Cruise Generation?

For some time now the average age of people taking a cruise holiday has been falling. If you include summer cruises in the equation, then the number of children travelling has an effect on the average but, crucially, the demographic has shifted again: so that even if you discount school holiday dates, the majority of cruisers travelling with brands like MSC Cruises are in their 50s and 60s. Not so long ago, the average age would have been around 70 and even beyond. And, let’s be honest, these days people in their 50s and 60s are scarcely old, they’re merely grown up!

SHOULD I PLAN AHEAD OR LOOK FOR LAST MINUTE CRUISES?

It is, in many ways, the perennial conundrum that faces the holiday planner and the want-away cruiser: do you plan months, or even years, in advance or do you make a snap decision based on a whim and, if you’re lucky, some last-minute, discounted fares to sweeten the deal? Sadly, there’s no definitive answer as to the best course of action, both approaches have their merits and both can lead to a really great cruise depending, of course, on your needs and expectations.
