Find the Perfect Cruise!

Cruising appeals to everyone. It's a painless way to visit the world's ports. You book your lodging once, fly to one destination, settle in once, unpack once. For a busy family, this may seem ideal. Baby boomers also like the appeal of a one stop vacation. Cruise lines, however, don't always recognize a boomer's need for adult activities and kid free spaces. Here are a few lines that do.

Carnival has eight ships with a "Serenity Adults Only Retreat." Just those 21 and better may enter. All of the cruise line ships offer a versatile menu of mature activities. Casinos, nightclubs, wine bars, fitness classes, theater, and the "Cloud 9 Spa" are a few onboard appetizers. Carnival ships explore boomer bucket list places like the Bahamas and the Great Barrier Reef.

Royal Caribbean's onshore excursions have the right mix of adult adventure and culture. Active boomers can enjoy anything from horseback riding to parasailing to wine tasting. A western Caribbean itinerary might include snorkeling or a hike to a Jamaican waterfall. The line's Liberty of the Seas has onboard activities that ready its passengers for its ports of call. A boomer on this ship might learn how to surf or rock climb.

For boomers craving intimacy, the Regent Seven Seas Cruise Line has smaller ships in its fleet. Its Seven Seas Voyager is an all-suite, all-balcony liner with room for 700. It explores the seas from Mumbai to Cape Town. Stops in Kenya or the island of Zanzibar might involve an open-top ride through a wild animal preserve or a visit to a spice ranch.

Viking River Cruises has a reputation for pampering its prime customer - the baby boomer. Not only does the company explore inland rivers, it ventures through the oceans. Known for its imaginative itineraries, a passenger on the Rhone River Cruise might tour Roman ruins, sample the best French cuisine in Lyon, or imbibe in Beaujolais wines.

Windstar is a complete escape from the teeming masses of a mega ship. The yachts in its fleet don't carry more than 310 people. They visit about 50 nations and can dock at out-of-the-way places like Virgin Gorda, St. Barth's, or a host of Asian islands. Its guides help guests explore unexpected landscapes.

Boomers are discovering other little ship lines. Based out of the Pacific Northwest, UnCruise has a fleet of expedition boats and luxury yachts. A passenger can see Alaska, Hawaii, the Galapagos, or the Columbia and Snake Rivers. The boats carry the gear every adventurer needs to explore the waters and lands.

The compact vessels in the Lindblad Expeditions fleet have comfortable rooms and are outfitted to help passengers discover both the wild and the civilized capitals of the world. Its National Geographic Quest has visited Alaska's inner passages, Panama, Costa Rica, and the Columbia. The fleet's zodiacs, scuba equipment, stand-up paddle boards, open bridges, and crow's nest cameras can enhance a cruiser's experience.
