My first suggestion is to take a cruise to find out what your experience will be like. I was on a cruise and a group of individuals were in travel agent and other cruise position training. They were paying for the cruise, but they were getting the experience of being on the cruise. This kind of experience gives them the background that they can use when they talk with clients. Now as to my Disney Panama Canal cruise I was with five other single individuals, male and female. We had a great time while on the ship, and we went our separate ways when we went ashore. The food was great, the service was excellent, and it was a pleasure trip.
