All Aboard. The giant Sassy cruise ship of 2020 is departing

Dec 31, 2019

All Aboard!  The giant Sassy cruise ship of 2020 is departing.  We hope you have everything packed for the adventure that lies ahead if you are hanging with us – and if you aren’t signed up please do so now here.  The cruise will be 365 days long and to get started you’ve got to pass through customs and board the ship.  To do so, you have to throw away all the BAD and SAD moments that have gone before in the rubbish bins on arrival.

Now, prepare yourself by looking towards the horizon. Introduce yourself to those around you before you find your cabin.  They’ll be your mates on this journey.  If you don’t know the people around you it’s time to make some new friends.  This can be done with a smile a wave and a casual chat, or you could find a new hobby on board, where others will mingle with things in common.

Now, the itinerary… The year ahead will be stopping in on the following ports:

  • Getting healthy
  • Embracing love
  • Feeling joy
  • Having fun
  • Staying up-to-date
  • And creating harmony.


Refuelling will be occurring in several ways, through:

  • Sharing of time and effort
  • A sense of belonging
  • Doing more of what you love
  • Big conversations on controversial topics that matter


And the major ports we’ll be spending time in include:

  • Your big retirement holidays
  • Finding new purpose in life outside of work
  • Hanging with the Grandkids
  • Taking care of yourself
  • Remedy seeking for (slightly) ageing muscles and bones

The menu on the cruise will be limited to the following choices.  No alternative dietary options will be offered.  If you don’t like it, you will need to take an alternate route.

  • Cocktail of caring and friendship
  • Bowls of excellent news
  • Pies of good health
  • Gratings of prosperity
  • Cakes of happiness
  • Lashings of love
  • Crepes of great conversation

All will be shared, and all will be accompanied by bursts of laughter and energy.  But remember, you will enjoy these meals and the cruise better if you talk, share, smile and laugh together. Sitting silent and alone will make the cruise seem long, sad and boring.

Before Sassy Cruise 2019 ends, hoping you and your families have an amazing year.

All of us here at Starts at 60, (Australia’s largest media company for over-60s) and Travel at 60 (our online and offline travel agency for over-60s) wish you a very happy journey on the 2020 cruise.  We can’t wait to be at your service on the trip ahead.

Here’s to much more for everyone in the next 12 months, I know the best is yet to come

Warmest regards
