Why cruising?
Although it varies from ship to ship, there are so many fun activities to enjoy on board a modern cruise ship:
- live shows (comedy, musicals)
- restaurants (complimentary and speciality)
- game shows and trivia competitions
- dress up theme nights (disco, gadsby, 70s)
- dance classes (line dancing, ballroom, rock n roll)
- live music (classical, RnB, rock, piano bar)
- information sessions (e.g. travel destinations, history of rock n roll, future of electric cars, etc.)
- sports (table tennis, pickleball, mini golf, swimming, gym, exercise classes, yoga)
- on shore tours
and much much more.

Or you can just kick back and have a relaxing holiday.

About the Cruise Buddies:
• We are a small group of solo travellers (19 at last count), over the age of 50 who love cruising.

• Cruise Buddies often do their own thing during the day and arrange to meet up for lunch and then drinks around 5pm. From there they usually head off to a restaurant, check out the main show and listen to some live music.

• Most of the cruises listed for 2024 are departing from either Brisbane or Sydney. There are several repositioning cruises from Singapore and Hawaii. If you are doing a cruise not already on our list then we can add your cruise.

How it Works:
• Use this website to get an idea of what cruises other people are doing.
• Book your cruise through a travel agent, online booking site, or direct with the cruise line.
• Return to this site to tick a box against the cruise you are doing to let others know. It's that simple.

Terms of Use:
• Cruise Buddies is generally open to anyone over the age of 50 who is single, married, defacto. No Restrictions.
• It is not about hooking up with anyone. If you happen to meet the love of your life then that is great; however, the aim is to make friends and share travel experiences with other solo cruisers.
• Most of the Cruise Buddies have their own cabin. You are free to make your own arrangements to share with someone if you wish.
