Please help me choose a ship for a Mexican Riviera cruise for my 88 year old father and me

Jump to last reply

My 88 year old father would like to go on a Mexican cruise. He has been on a couple of cruises with my mother. She passed away last year and recently I had to move my father to an assisted living residence.

Physically he is in good shape, but cannot walk too far or climb too many stairs. He can take care of himself, but is forgetful and can get confused at times. I would be with him the whole time and think mentally the crusie would be good for him.

My question is would one cruise line be better than the other for him. I don't see him wearing a suit or getting too dressy. He always wears a dress shirt and slacks, but not even sure if he has a jacket anymore.

I would also like for him to have his own bedroom, as he snores and I would never fall asleep with that going on, but for us to be in the same cabin.

My budget is $5,000 for both of us. Any suggestions on which cruise line would be best for us? I'm looking at this April or May so I need to get going on this.

Thanks
