I think we will be youthful enough to have fun and party late but mature enough not to need to "chuck in the bushes" and God knows my wet t-shirt days are over and I now realize that I don't have to wet my t-shirt to get the attention I want.
I assume and would suggest you look at Carnival. They will have a better age mix with more teens for your son to socialize with.
Good luck and happy cruzin'
Thanks for taking time to respond to my query.
You sound like a pretty cool-dude to hang with on one of these adventures. I didn't mean to suggest or imply single-parents or single-parents cruising with their kids are all 50-something PWP empty-nesters. Since taking custody of my young squire, I haven't focused much time or attention to rescuing local damsels-in-distress. Subsequently, I'm still a pathetic bachelor and wet t-'s (I'm guessing) would still catch my eye and attention.
Though I have checked-out VTG's Singles Cruises area, I'll check it again, more thoroughly. I'll also contact VTG directly to see what they can recommend.
Thanks again for taking time to write. I hope you have a fantastic summer and an excellent September cruise.
I am a girl. However, call VTG and speak to someone about your interests. I think you would be a wonderful addition to any one of their singles cruises. I believe their groups are less on the "looking for love" and more on the "just here to have a good time" mode. Some of the other single cruise organizers place a bit more emphasis on "look for love" which can be a major downer if all you want is a good vacation.
I go for the fun. Anything else would be an added bonus.
