Senior Escorted Cruises From Travel Express

Senior Escorted Cruises have become a popular social adventure for those senior travelers who enjoy group travel and discovering new cruise destinations. With the constant adding of new cruise itineraries around the world by the cruise lines, the potential to cruise new destinations is ongoing. The more seasoned cruise travelers, with more familiarity of certain destinations and cultures will generally opt-out for the escorted cruise, instead enjoying the independence of discovering on their own. The senior group traveler who enjoys the social experience, the organization and destination information that escorted cruises and tours offers will opt-in. Celebrity Cruises, Silver Seas and Norwegian Cruises are among the many cruise lines that offer exotic destinations like the Galapagos Islands, South America and Africa. These exotic ports of call coupled with a well organized escorted cruise and shore excursions are the making of an incredible cruise experience. Certain cruise lines like Costa Cruises are exceptional for Italian and Mediterranean ports and inland tours with offered escorted cruises. Russian and European river cruises are incredible journeys and popular as escorted cruises and tours.

Senior Escorted CruisesAn escorted cruise and tour is the most traditional kind of cruise travel for groups, clubs and organizations sailing to new destinations. It usually involves group travel with accommodation, activities and meals included for onboard and onshore travel. Generally, the cruise portion will follow a criteria of activities onboard that will be pre and post informative of the port destinations for the cruise and the up-coming shore itinerary. The shore tour portion of the cruise will follow a set itinerary and will be accompanied by a tour director, tour guide or cruise consultant. Sometimes local guides and experts may join in the shore excursion offering a more in-dept view and local flavor of the escorted cruise destination.
