Travelers Over 60 Are Taking The “Gray Gap Year”

Norwegian Cruise Line surveyed travelers over 60, and 21% said they felt like they missed out on trips and experiences due to the pandemic. 

In fact, 19% revealed that they want to travel more than they did five years ago. 21% regret not taking a gap year earlier on in their teenage years and early twenties. 

Eamonn Ferrin, Vice President of International Business at Norwegian Cruise Line shares, “While globetrotting has long been associated with the young and carefree, our research suggests more boomers are traveling than ever before.”

“Whilst golden gap year travel is becoming a trend, we’ve seen a surge in all generations prioritizing travel, taking more frequent trips to long-haul destinations. No matter your age, travel has no limit,” Ferrin continues.
