Default 1st time - singles cruise

I just signed up for a cruise in November (Thanksgiving) to Greek Island, Egypt, Israel and Italy with a stop in Zurich too. The agency is all singles travel. that is the URL, http://allsinglestravel.com

I have never been on a cruise before. I am in my forties and single. This is a 14-day cruise. Has ANYONE been on this cruise or have any words of advice?

Joan, I don't know anything about your singles cruise but have a few questions you may want to have answered. I believe you were on another forum and mentioned the ship name of Azur. This may be a brand new ship. Try the Mediterranean Shipping Lines. I believe they also own the Aida. These are European cruise ships and cater to European travelers, especially Germans. You might want to be sure they speak English if that is your primary language. Also, November is late to cruise in Europe. How will the weather be even in the Med? Research is half the fun of preparing for a cruise. Good Luck.
Bon Voyage

I found out the ship is in Italy. It was built in 1971 and refurbished in 1998. They took off the portion of the trip that went to Israel because of the unstable conditions there. You have to fly to Genoa Italy, where the ship is docked.

I asked if I could get a roommate around my age, etc. and they said I would meet everyone the first night on the ship. Is that how it works? You meet everyone and then find yourself a roommate?
