Pinta/Pinta Gold good for the middle/old aged only?

    My partner and I are considering either the Pinta or Pinta Gold cruiser (as recommended by contributors here), but it seems that the boats are just suitable for the middle/old aged. Will we feel lost in the mix if we're booked?

    Much appreciate your advices.

    Whoa, where'd you get that idea?

    [color=blueOn my last trip on a Pinta cruise, my wife & I - being grey haired - were outnumbered by 20 somethings!. All enjoyed themselves!

    Cheers

    Hi Lex, we're in our early thirties and booked the Pinta Gold already. Hope to have a good mix.

    Hi - I'm considering a 2 or 3 day cruise to Halong Bay also, and I was wondering what company you are all referring to when you mention the Pinta or Pinta Gold?

    No, the Pinta Gold hadn't then been built (the Pinta).

    Yes, many do. The only downside is to ensure the jellyfish aren't prevalent as they can give you a nasty sting.

    Cheers
