Each traveler is different, of course, and many mature travelers remain focused on adventures and new experiences well into their eighties. They choose what’s right for them!
Cruising spikes in popularity with this group, and one oft-cited reason is the “only unpack once” advantage that mature travelers enjoy. “In general, older clientèle appreciate a planned itinerary,” Eleanor says. “They like knowing from day to day what will be happening and where they’re sleeping each night.”
Eleanor points out another trend for the mature travelers is that priorities become more important. “Some will want to see India now and then plan a more relaxing itinerary in a few years,” Eleanor says. “The pacing of trips is important too – another reason cruising reigns supreme in this demographic. Older travelers require a bit more downtime and, overall, that often creates a more enjoyable trip.”
