Cruises for Over-50 Singles

If you're single, over the age of 50, and have a sense of wanderlust, join the crowd. Plenty of travel and cruise companies now offer trips for mid-life, single travelers, catering to those who crave adventure, history, culture and simply a chance to get away and mingle with people their own age. Here's a look at several companies who offer cruises for the over-50 crowd.

Both of the company's ships, the Balmoral and the Braemar, were recently reconfigured with 50 staterooms for single travelers. This cruise company also has "dance hosts" on hand to offer single travelers a dance partner in the evenings. Fred Olsen offers cruises throughout Europe, a cruise along the California coast, trips to the Mediterranean and the Caribbean, and even a cruise to the Amazon.
