Cruise Discounts for Senior Citizens?
Are seniors eligible for discounts on cruises?
The short answer is: YES.
Since seniors have long been the backbone of the cruise market, cruise lines often offer good deals. You don't even have to be retired to take advantage of them. If you are 55 or older, just about all the lines will give you a discount.
(Note, only one person in the cabin needs to be 55 or older, so if you're planning a mother/daughter trip or some such then you can still get the senior discount.)
The discount varies depending on the cruise line, as does the inclusion of airfare. Just ask your travel agent or the cruise line directly about what kind of deals they have for seniors.
Also, if you are a member of AARP (American Association of Retired Persons), Carnival and some other lines have additional discounts.
