THINGS TO DO
Every day's a new adventure: the world is waiting for you....
There's always something to do on-board or on-shore when you're living on a cruise ship. Explore ancient ruins, do a class with one of the expert teachers in some of the destinations you visit, learn to make pizzas with Italian chefs, snorkel with Manta Rays or explore some hidden grotto on a deserted beach in the Greek Islands. Learn how to dance in Fiji and partake in a lovo feast (pit cooking). There are so many options and Cruise Retirement can help you explore them all. There's sitting at home looking out at a scenery that never changes or there's a different lifestyle where every day brings new horizons and cultural experiences.
The sky's the limit! Our flagship, the M.V. Enchanted Explorer is Ice Class so we can take you to visit many seldom-explored places such as Antarctica and Greenland, where you can experience these majestic and unspoiled, yet icy climates. Not many people can say their home has visited these parts of the world!
Snorkeling & Sailing Tour
Hire a sailing dinghy for the day and have a friendly race with friends or go Day Sailing from one of the local Yacht Clubs. Cruise Retirement's Concierge Services can arrange these types of impromptu events and as part of the Explorer Club you'll have a range of services at your fingertips to explore like never before!
Take a smaller craft out for a few days and explore some of the other islands whilst your ship is docked in the Greek Islands or experience the fantastic beauty of some of those hidden bays and inlets you've only seen in the movies. The world is at your feet and you can enjoy some of the most delicious delicacies on offer with Lunch Boxes made by our World-class chefs that you can take with you.
Markets & Bazaars
Explore markets and bazaars that have existed for thousands of years and collect trinkets and gifts for friends and family.
Relax & unwind
Relax and have fun; there are plenty of deck chairs to laze around on with a drink by the pool or you can read a book whilst you glance up at the activity in the port or the ocean as you travel from place to place.
If you are a bit of a crafter, there are a number of groups run by the Residents that can help you learn a craft as you travel. If you'd like to learn to mould modelling clay, how to embroider or want to do a cooking class, we can arrange it for you.
Become immersed in the culture and history of the places you visit. Traveling is all about experiencing the differences.
Golf & Tuition
Like to play golf? There's plenty of golfers onboard who would love to play with you! We'll arrange a game for you and you can even have lessons with our onboard Golf Pro in the virtual golf simulators or practice nets.
Vineyard & Cheese Platter Tours
A number of winery tours are scheduled each year to allow you to explore and sample the regions you visit and what makes them famous.
