I'm a 28 year old male that has been cruising for the past 6 years. I was tired of the long car trips and joined my parents in their annual cruise. Ever since then, I have gone on a cruise every year since. Singles cruises are the best and I would not worry about being alone. The cruise opened my eyes to people of various cultures. Throgh cruising, you meet so many people that may lead to vacations elsewhere. Through crusing, we have made friends in Sweden, UK, Africa, Egypt, India, Spain and France that have extended invitations.
Liek so many others, I just say go with the attitude that you are going to enjoy yourself. REWARD yourself for all that hardwork. I can ensure you that you will be ready to book again whe you return.
