I will be going on my first cruise in February, it's with a group of people on a local rock radio station promotion. I think I will be the only solo going. I am hoping that if I choose not to hang out with them that I will still be able to entertain myself on my own. I will not know any of these folks anyway.
I might meet some of them on the flight as I suspect they will have most of us going out at the same time.
