We love cruising! The big ships these days don't rock and roll like they used to, they have big stabilizers.
There is great food, entertainment, and the ability to take trips to interesting places when in dock.
I loved the Mediterranean cruise the best. Croatia is fantastically beautiful. You can take a bus tour to PISA, to a vineyard.
Cruises (Holland America, Norwegian) especially cater to the more mature. However, my grandchildren prefer Holland America over Disney. On Holland
America there are so few children they have the child care staff and area practically to themselves.
There are lots of cruises to lots of fantastic places - you don't have to worry about walking much - you can sign up for excursions that fit your
pace. Just make sure you get a cabin in the middle of the ship, cabins above and below you, near elevators but a few cabins away from elevators.
Best entertainment: Disney (there were more mature couples alone on Disney cruises)
Worst line for the more mature: Carnival - too much noise everywhere and booze everywhere,
comedians are really really off color
Best environment for the mature: Holland America, Norwegian, Royal Caribbean
Best ships for the more mature: The larger ships with better stabilizers
If you want to go all out, choose a small super expensive line, I hear they are fantastic
