What we're about

Let's meet up with other 45+ travellers who like to cruise or vacation on a budget!

I'll be posting some cruises and other vacations as Meetup events; many of them will be last minute budget-priced cruises. Others will be well in advance cruises and land vacations where I will keep an eye out on the prices. People wanting to join me will purchase their own. I will periodically post the updated price of the cruise (fares change often) but it is up to the member to check the price at the time of their interest.

Arrangements can be made to match single/solo cruisers up with a cabin-mate or room-mate.

If you choose to cruise solo, look for little or NO SINGLE SUPPLEMENT cruises.

Check the DISCUSSIONS board for examples of prices for these so you have a good idea.

Members also use the DISCUSSIONS board for posting their interest in finding a cabin-mate.

I will RSVP that I am going however that is beacsue I am the leader and keep my name there so members can message me.

So please go ahead and RSVP even if you are only just interested so we can try you get a group together and see where it goes. Maybe some of the members who have expressed an interest (by RSVPing) will get together and go on it. I will be focusing on Hosted Singles Group cruises which typically cost more;and are put together and designed for singles with single events and match program for finding a cabin mate.

I will hold "Let's Talk Vacations and Cruising" or "Meet and Greets" Meetups in various areas of the GTA where we will discuss posted vacations and cruise events and general tips and tricks that I've learned over the years. Some of these meetups might also include meeting up with fellow members with the purpose of getting to know a potential cabin-mate.

Once again, I encourage members to check out the DISCUSSIONS board often (located on the menu line of this Group) for examples of good cruise deals and great tricks and tips. There will also be posts there regarding updates to a cruise or vacation the group is showing Interest in or is taking.

NOTE: This group is aimed at single travellers but is not strictly for singles AND it is intended for people in the 45+ age range.
