From stays at all-inclusive resorts, including Couples Tower Isle, Rendezvous and Grand Velas, to cruise vacations, such as AmaWaterways, Lindblad Expeditions and Cunard Line, many vacations feature the value, flexibility, friendliness and slower pace that many seniors desire. Often, seniors prefer the climate and abundance of all-inclusive options that are available in Mexico and the Caribbean, though many tourist destinations around the world have packages that feature an all-inclusive option.
Located in Riviera Maya, Mexico, Grand Velas sits on 205 acres of beachfront property. Its Grand Class Suites are designed for older adults, with a minimum age of 12 for anyone who wants on the premises. It features 24-hour concierge service and large rooms with oversized patios or terraces with plunge pools. With varying price points available, vacations can be tailored to meet the needs of a romantic getaway, family reunion,or multigenerational trip.
For many older adults, participating in enrichment programs is rewarding. Princess and Celebrity cruise lines offer ample opportunity to learn and play. Featuring approximately 20 classes per sailing, Princess offers guests the opportunity to hone their photography, culinary and website design skills. By joining efforts with Apple, Celebrity teaches passengers how to use iPads, iPhones and computers. It also offers Rosetta Stone language courses and live glassblowing demonstrations.
