My 90.5 year old aunt just mentioned that she is thinking of taking an extended – perhaps year-long – cruise around the world before moving into a retirement community. She is amazingly energetic and in very good health for her age. She has traveled extensively, although I don’t believe she went on any cruises. I would love to help her gather information about her options and hope that the Fodorite community will help me do that. Because I have never taken a cruise, I don’t even know where to begin! Any comments, suggestions, or tips would be most welcome. Thanks in advance!
Year-long cruise around the world?
