I sailed on the 6-11 Dec 04 "singles" cruise. You would've been about in the middle, age-wise this time (did you happen to make this one?) I'm a recently divorced guy of 55 and this was my first cruise. Had a great time and plan on doing it again next Dec or ? Won't even think about going on a "Fu-Fu" cruise. You're missing out if you don't book on one of these trips!
