Age is just a number, and I really don't think there is any perfect age to "single" cruise. I've seen women in their 80s traveling alone. There is also a club for older women who travel without spouses, relatives, or friends called "Merry Widow Cruises." You can read my article about them in the Singles section of Cruisemates.
Regardless of whether you meet that special someone, you will have a wonderful time, and remember, some of your fellow shipmates cruising alone may feel just as uncertain as you do, so there you have a common bond to begin with! Just go and have a great time...and be sure to post here on the Cruisemates Singles Message boards and tell us all about it when you return.
