What is an adults-only cruise?


Many cruise lines have pioneered adults-only cruises. Their ships are entirely child-free or at the very least, they offer many adults-only facilities. In most cases, adult-only ships welcome aboard those 18 and over but Saga Cruises, for example, have a strict 50s and over policy.

There are many reasons to book an adults-only cruise. There will be no demands on your time as you favour fine dining, meet like-minded companions or watch the ocean slip by from the solitude of your stateroom balcony. With no set routine and nobody to please except yourself, you can relish each forthcoming destination, knowing you have the freedom to wander at your leisure as you soak up the sights and sounds of each magical place. You may choose to use your time at sea to reconnect with your other half, soothe your soul with pampering spa treatments, take in spectacular late-night shows or simply take your leave of the real world with all its demands on your energy and time. Whatever you choose, you’ll disembark feeling rejuvenated, refreshed and inspired.


Destination highlights

Explore the coastal beauty, medieval towns and fascinating architecture of the Mediterranean, be soothed by the Caribbean’s blissful sea breezes, discover Europe’s most fascinating, historic and cultural cities, chase the magical aurora borealis in Norway or see it all on a grand world voyage. Whichever you choose, each day will bring new experiences that will stimulate and reinvigorate. Each night, you’ll slip into blissful sleep, soothed by waves and buoyed by dreams filled with anticipation for your next adventure.


Which cruise lines offer adults-only cruises?

When you want to get away from it all, there’s nowhere better than a gleaming ocean liner. Saga Cruises offer holidays exclusively for over 50s. Their luxury, boutique-style ships have been carefully designed to offer the utmost comfort. The world’s oldest cruise line P&O Cruises has two adults-only ships in its impressive fleet. Arcadia and Aurora offer once-in-a-lifetime adventures in adults-only bliss. Though Fred. Olsen is not strictly an adults-only cruise line, they do offer a wide selection of cruises just for adults.
