You know you're getting old when over-60's darling Fred Olsen starts talking about your favourite singers and bands.
David Bowie, Ronnie Wood, Elton John.
No they are not performing on a Fred ship (that would be just too unreal) but they are turning 65 in 2012 - just the right age to enjoy the special package the cruise line is launching for anyone celebrating this milestone birthday on one of their ships next year.
The package includes £50 onboard spending credit, a reprint newspaper from their date of birth (where available), a celebration breakfast for two and complimentary pre-dinner cocktails for two.
You'll also be included in a prize draw, with a chance to win 65 days of free cruising.
To be celebrating your 65th birthday next year, you'll have been born in 1947. Fred Olsen tells me:
- There was still post-war rationing
- India gained independence and civil war broke out on the sub-continent
- The CIA was launched
- Princess Elizabeth married Philip Mountbatten, Duke of Edinburgh, at Westminster Abbey
- The Dead Sea Scrolls were found
All that and David Jones, the man who would be Aladdin Sane and Ziggy Stardust, was born
It was quite a year.
