Crusing is a great way to travel solo! Go to this chat board's "Meet on Board" section and post your cruise data - it's fun to meet up with others from the board as a way to start your cruise not "totally" solo. Good way to begin meeting people you're traveling with.
Just don't go expecting to pick someone up (speaking from the female point of view) - it will just look pushy and desperate. Go to have a good, relaxing time. Choose open seating so you can sit at a table with others, bring some good books to lounge around the pool with, go to all the group activities on board.... just have a good time and RELAX!

At my age the word "no" doesn't bother me, it's the word "yes" that scares the hell out of me? I don't remember what to do after she says yes. Hell it's been 30 years.
