Some senior singles cruises are themed, around faith— Christian singles cruises and Jewish singles cruises are options for any age—or around shared passions. Senior singles bridge cruises are especially popular, as the game proves an ideal way to meet new players and friends. Most major cruise lines have singles cruises.
