Cruising

Welcome to the YourLifeChoices Cruising page, where you can find the latest cruise ships, cruise destinations and cruise deals which will make you want to shout “All aboard”.

A cruise can take you to places you never dreamt you’d visit: Antarctica, the Bahamas, or Australia’s Top End, amongst many others. Cruising is relaxing – you only need to unpack once – and yet you will visit many different destinations - the perfect senior travel experience.

Whether you jump on a Russian ice-breaker, cruise the Rhine or take a cargo ship in Mexico, a cruise is a stress-free holiday suitable for all ages, from grandchildren to pre-retirees to seniors, there's a cruise that's right for you. And beginners can take heart—our Beginner's Guide to Cruising gives you all you need to start sailing now.
