My parents will celebrate their 40th anniversary on January 29, 2016, and their life long (well, marriage long) goal has been to go on a cruise. It is also my mom's 60th birthday in March. So, two major milestones within a couple of months. I am wanting to send them on a cruise for their anniversary/birthday/Christmas gifts. (Dad's birthday is in May). This may also have to be their Mother's/Father's day gift as well. So, I want it to be a great cruise, at least a week long. Mom wants to go on a cruise in the Carribean, Dad doesn't care where. They also want to go to Hawaii, but Mom is terrified of flying and won't get on a plane to go there.
So, what are the best cruise lines to go on, the most cost efficient, but also nice, for a couple in their early 60s? They have a 10 year old that would have to be left at home with me, and while I know they would want to take her, I want them to have this as a sort of second honeymoon, free of children. They are not drinkers or smokers, so I don't have to take that into account. I know nothing about cruises, so want the best I can get for my money (and I really couldn't afford to spend more than $2000).
Help, please? Thank you!
