I might meet some of them on the flight as I suspect they will have most of us going out at the same time.
Wow, did you win the cruise? That would be very cool. The best thing about solo cruising, IMHO, is the freedom to be part of a group when you want company (it is incredibly easy meeting people on a cruise) or to be on your own when you want. There is plenty to do on the ship on sea days and exploring ports or excursions on port days. You can be as active or not active as you want.
Have a great cruise!
