    I've cruised ALOT and rarely have I ever booked with the cruise line. Most places have some great dive shops that will be better than the cruises anyway.

    I get your general point, but the negative connotation of "discrimination" seems unreasonable given that I have to believe the vast majority of people in that age bracket are nowhere near as mobile as you apparently are. There's multiple issues including that people, gasp, lie about their capabilities to the dive shop, etc and given their responsibility for you and little details like the downside of recovering bodies, I don't know that their position is entirely unreasonable. That said, you should have the ability to demonstrate your abilities and should be able to go if capable.
