I would appreciate anyone who might share their thougts on a solo crossing. I'm mid-thirties, recently divorced, looking to make some changes and experience new things, meet new people, etc. Actually, I have 'crossed' three times, once on the QE2 (age 14) and twice long before that as a really young kid on the Rafaelo and the Michaelangelo out of Genoa, Italy. I really only remember the QE2.
I've already booked my ticket for the Sept 11 crossing (I was told it was sold out and the waiting list was a mile long, but the next day my agent told me I was onboard--Rm 8105, a B3 junior suite; after reading the posts on this and other sites I learned this is one of the infamous balcony suites with no room, oh well)
Here are my real questions, just three:
Are there many (any?) single ladies (25-45) on westbound crossings?
Is there a site beside this one where solo travelers might get acquainted online prior to embarkation?
What is the dinner situation like for solo crossers? Is seating assigned?
I may at the last minute decide to have someone, perhaps my sister or my son, accomany me, but right now I am thinking solo. Please share any thoughts.
