Basically interested in relaxing, eating, touring the ports of call. If you're an experienced cruiser you must tolerate sharing the room and trip with a newbie. All humans and some aliens are encouraged to respond. No snorers please.
Words of encouragement. Even if you wind up by yourself (1st one) you'll have a good time. Dream is big, nice. You get daily calendars telling what's going on that day, lists dining options and times etc. Singles meet and greet listed, but quite late at night, not always well attended. Don't be shy talking to others, cruisers have a strong comradery. My 1st solo was scarey, but you've got a good ship, easy port to find and get around, just follow the other people to board. I now have no fear of going alone, and even met a passenger that was solo, we can now roomshare and will be on Ecstasy at the end of Nov. There, I did my duty.
