Thanks for the reply. Yes, this is my third cruise and just love it. The first thing I noticed when I had a partner to go with was how nice it was for each of us to do our own thing and that it could be okay going alone. I consider myself an outgoing person and like to meet people, so I think I will have a great time. I think the time when I will feel alone is the traveling from Edmonton (where I live) to Toronto, then from Toronto to San Juan and spending the night there. When I board the ship, I will just know I will be better. Thanks for your encouraging words - looking forward to the adventure.
