Hi everyone. I need to get over to England, specifically Southampton, in June for an exam. With all the volcano madness and uncertainty with air travel lately, I thought, what better way than travel in style aboard the Queen Mary 2? I've always wanted to go transatlantic on an ocean liner in some sort of nostalgic tribute to the golden age of ocean travel.
The thing is, I'm a 28 year old single male traveller. While I don't really mind paying Cunard's big single supplement (about $600), I'm curious about how I can fit in with a majority of passengers who are married and much older than myself (Not to mention the massive income gap).
Is it common to see younger singles on transatlantic trips? Is it easy to meet people on board? What about the dining arrangments? I guess I just wanted to see if I was going to be the only young guy aboard a ship filled with older couples and honeymooners.
Thanks for your help, everyone!
Hi Were you interested in May 21 crossing? Please write quickly to firstname.lastname@example.org if you still are interested. I am a straight male in my 50's but do not want to pay the double occupancy rate as a single passenger.
I sailed from Southampton to New York on the QM2 on the 22nd of April. I am now desperate to get back to England. I know there is a sailing on the 1 July on the QM2.
If you are still looking for a cabin mate and there is a good transatlantic to the UK on any ship (including freight cruises) let me know. It will depend on price for me because I am pretty broke.
