Robinw- All river cruise ships are fairly small and casual, unlike ocean cruises. Check out river cruises available via Grand Circle and Vantage travel. Check out CruiseCritic website for info and reviews on cruises. My Med. cruises were on Windstar and Oceania

I will be traveling alone too. I am interested in how you found out about small boats for your cruises. I want to go down several european/eastern european rivers but not in a big boat.

Any information is appreciated.

thanks,

Robinkw

I've been on several Caribbean cruises but my bucket list cruises were in the Mediterranean on small ships. Athens to Istanbul through the Greek Isles,  Venice and small ports down the Adriatic, Venice to Istanbul different Adriatic ports, Greek Islands and Turkish ports. I travel alone and small ship cruises are  comfortable, casual and the other passengers are more friendly and sociable than on large ships.

I always wanted to go to Alaska.  I was finally able to go on a cruise last May to see the glaciers.  That was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen!  If you get the chance, you should go!  Getting close to glacierGetting close to glacierglacierglaciersorry duplicatesorry duplicatebeautiful scenery from deck of shipbeautiful scenery from deck of shipsign from top of mountain in Skagwaysign from top of mountain in SkagwayKetchikanKetchikanBald Eagle sitting on post in front of shipBald Eagle sitting on post in front of shipbeautiful waterfall before glacierbeautiful waterfall before glacierglacier calvingglacier calving

I’m really happy to start seeing Adult only cruises but an AARP Cruise/Con would be my vote.

What’s Your Bucket List Cruise?

Message 20 of 20

Have you cruised before, or are you thinking about cruising for the first time? Either way, we want to hear what your ultimate cruise would look like. Feel free to include details like cruise line, destinations, excursions or themes.

 

Just don’t forget to include your name, where you live and why you consider this your bucket list cruise. And if you’ve already taken your dream cruise, be sure to include a photo of your trip.

 

Your bucket list cruise could be selected and featured on aarp.org to inspire others in February!
