Do the cruise, just be sure to attend the first singles mixer. Your TA is not off base and as you have travelled solo you should be fine. Solos may hang toward the library, track/promenade and gym, singles the bars, pools, and organized shipboard activities.

I'm a young 58 yr. old guy who isn't necessarily looking to "hook-up", but female companionship would certainly be welcome. My TA advised me that for the length of time I was going to be cruising,(8 days) the Liberty would give me a good flavor of what cruising is like. At least on Carnival. Was I given bad info ? I've travelled alone many times before and never had trouble meeting people. I guess my question is, could I be considered some type of pariah or can I fit in ?
