One of the main perks of being retired is having the time to travel to all those places you’ve always dreamed of going. Not holding down a career or a full-time job anymore means the freedom to do almost anything you want. Active retirees especially love to travel, but there one thing that can get in the way of your plans, and that’s money. The financial side of retirement can be tricky and difficult to plan and doesn’t always leave you with loads of extra spending cash. Luckily, there’s no need to sacrifice your desire to travel in retirement, even if you’re not rolling in dough. There are plenty of budget friendly vacation destinations for active retirees. Here are our top 11.
1) Caribbean Cruise
What’s more relaxing and easy-going than boarding a boat and letting someone else take control? Cruises are super popular among active retirees for several reasons. First, the ease of the holiday is attractive. The trip is planned, you have a guide, and there’s not a whole lot of hustling around from place to place. Second, multi-day cruises to the Caribbean can be unbelievably budget-friendly. Carnival Cruise Lines offers a 5-day trip on their Carnival Sensations ship from Miami to the eastern Caribbean for as low as $390 per person including all taxes and fees. For this price you’ll see three different locations in the Caribbean (Nassau, Half Moon Cay, and Grand Turk). What’s more is the choice of onboard restaurants are included in the cost of the ticket. Can you believe you can eat, sleep, and explore the Caribbean for under $400? It’s a tough deal to turn down.
