How do you decide if you would lie a cruise?

Jump to last reply

Never been on cruise..only "boat" trip i've been on is a ferry from Vancouver to Victoria, Canada
Have a chance of lifetime ::::.QE2 NYC to London. My MAIN attraction is the program ...Lectures on Art given by an expert sponsored by Road Scholar (formerly Elderhostel --arranges educational programs for"seniors") Great programs
I am 82, recent widow, in good health but don't know if I am "cut-out" for 14 days on a boat with an assigned roommate in a room with porthole OR window(only accommodations left )
I get along with people but value my privacy
MOST STRESFUL 14 days of "confinement" and if commit $6,000 , not refundable a month before sails. Can take out insurance but only cover illness not "changing" mind...
I have the money but definitely a stretch...Small issue..what if health fails..after all I am 82,cardiac issue in family and a retired nurse...soI have seen lots of elderly people fall apart .
Bottomline, if this course was offered at a retreat--on land ..no problem with decision.
I could find 2-3 separate programs on art in US ..which I could afford and would enjoy
what a dilemma ...
Appreciate any observations
