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.
