I've done solo cruising before and I don't i\mind it, but it would be nice to have some extra spending cash at the ports.
I would go crazy solo. I've traveled so much solo in my work that I would not be able to break the solo=work mindset.
My problem is I can't stand the thought of sharing a room with a guy. Just can't help it. I have worked many years (banking) in a female dominated populations, and I am at home there. I am patiently trying to get cruise partners that understand companionship does not mean sex. I to have my boundaries. I do not want entanglements on a cruise, but I surely would like to split the cost with someone SWF that is not hormonal.
Do you have any good tips on USA East coast departures?
