Default Information on a single's cruise

I am 51 and recently divorced from a 30 year marriage. I started dating about a year ago which was a new experience. I have been doing things that I have never experienced before and loving it. I have been on 2 cruises with my ex-husband and love to cruise. I would really like to try the singles cruise along with a couple of my single divorced girl friends. We would love to meet some new people and have a great time. Would a singles cruise be something that we should do or should we just go on a regular cruise. When is the best time? Which cruise line? What do you suggest and how do I go about getting this arranged? Any suggestions and comments would be helpful.

They have a cocktail hour for singles on most every cruise. Check the Capers, it's usually scheduled the first night in one of the bars.

Enjoy cruising solo, it's a fun experience.

Like "Snooze" sez, don't wait for a singles cruise. Go ahead with a regular cruise, and take advantage of the singles get-together they have, usually the first night out, and then occasionally thereafter. You'll have a GREAT time I'd bet. There are other folks "in your boat" and I'd bet you won't have any problem making new friends, and dancing to the wee hours.

I have to agree with the rest of the posters. Don't wait for a singles cruise. Just sign up with your friends and go. You will not regret it just go and have fun.

Well I do a web search for sites that do singles cruises. I have never used these sites (I'm married). But they maybe of some help to you. I like this one because it shows the cruiseline clientel by age I don't think you want a singles cruise with all 20 year olds. This is also good information for my MIL who is a sweet woman and a widower (SP?).
