No way, never get me on a cruise ship.

Not sure that is a cruise ship.....no-one in the video appeared to be +80 years old
I've never seen cruise ship passengers as young as the ones in the video

Says cruise ship, dunno. Doesn't matter, never get my arse on one. It seems like nothing more than an expensive floating buffet Which, is the last thing I need, porking-out on da high seas with a herd of fatsos.

Taking a cruise to Antarctica in December; perhaps pontoons on the Sprinter instead?

Now, a trip to Antarctica may change my mind.

HaHa
On our first cruise we were in our "late 50's" and we were the youngest people on board.
One couple was celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary.
Someone said the daily rate on the cruise ship is cheaper than most assisted living facilities rates.

That's too funny. No wonder cruiseship passengers are dropping like flies. Floating Geriatric ward.

We're birders and there are several down there we can't see in Illinois (even in a zoo). Taking the second cruise of the season so it should still be pretty icy. Heard it got pretty warm down there last month. We usually do luxury ships now; the last one there were probably 2 dozen wheel chairs in queue with 80+ year olds waiting for crew to get them. I think the average age was 75ish (we're 64 now). We ran across 2 people that live full time on the ship. Not because it's an inexpensive alternative; a pretty ridiculously high level of wealth on some ships (not us).
