Hi, I've just started travelling on my own recently. I felt a little strange at first but I kind of like it. Just came back from New England/Canada trip on the Triumph. Cruise are not bad to travel by yourself. You do meet people and can have fun. But I would love to meet singles and over 50.
Maybe e-mailing over the year and possibly meet on the ship; that would be a good idea. I also agree having your own cabin.
I could take a cruise maybe twice a year? I'm from NYC and I just love getting down to the pier and jumping on. Although I would also fly to pick up a cruise ship to.
