Hi Quinn from manchester We r also booked on the artemis 27/12/08 and we have also been wondering if we have made a mistake by booking it. We have just returned from a caribbean cruise with Sea Princess Feb 2008 and had a fantastic time. We are also late 40's ealy 50's so dont worry there will be at least 4 of us under the age of 65.
We went aurora in may and expected hot choc and horlicks brigade as we are late 40s early 50s.Believe us the oldies have had plenty of practice and know how to enjoy themselves and mostly arnt afraid to spend a bob or two.Ignore the doomsters,we have booked artemis 4 weeks nov 08 and are looking forward to trying to keep up agai.
If you dont want Negative then dont post stupid questions!!!
Do you have to be so rude!! who ever you are referring to would have posted their question for an honest answer.
Yes, well, I'm not really sure what reviews have been on offer but when my wife and I had a cruise on the Artemis last Summer (and will be on another THIS Summer), we didn't hear of any such negative reviews.
We are both in our early fifties (I was 51) and we shared a table with two ladies in their forties. On the next table were a couple in their twenties and they didn't seem to mind the ages of their fellow passengers!
Look, just forget about the ageism thing; everyone on board Artemis enjoys themselves and age has nothing at all to do with it. Personally, I'm looking forward to seeing Norway and I know my wife feels exactly the same way.
Miind you, we did notice that some of those 'oldies' are a bit sneaky because a number of them are a darn sight fitter than us!!
We went on the Grand Caribbean cruise in March/April this year for 5 weeks. On the whole we enjoyed the lovely ports of call, and the ship was friendly. BUT the standards have certainly plummeted as the food wasn't very good at all and as for the evening entertainment, well, forget it. We are in our late 50's
and young at heart. We also sailed on the Sea Princess and much preferred it. But I hope you have a great time.
Hi were going to the caribbean in october and we have just hit our 50,s will let you know when we get back .
