4 day cruises suitable for a single 30's female?
Hi There
Is the Majesty Of The Seas 4 day cruise with Royal Caribbean suitable for a solo traveller?
Or would a 4 day cruise with Carnival to Cozumel be more suitable?

I would really just like to get away and relax...i'm open to a bit of of partying but it not the criteria. I've heard mixed reviews on Carnival is more suitable for university students but also that its very single friendly?

They are both around the same price and I'm leaning towards Royal but one of my friends who has been on a lot of cruises told me that he doest think there will be many other singles?

Any suggestions?

If the main criteria is to get away and relax, then it may not matter which one of them you go with. I plan on going with Norwegian Sky 02/15-02/18/13 solo. Main criteria for me is to relax and see a different place at the same time - but would party some. Have you found a cruise yet?

This is a good question - whether cruising is good for single cruisers.

1. The thing about Carnival being more of a "party" ship is partly true, but not the age thing. It attracts "partiers" of all ages.

2. That being said, no cruise is as much of a "singles party scene" as a lot of people seem to think. Would you go to Disney World for four days looking to meet people and make friends? Cruises are not that much different, the vast majority of people are with their family and friends and not looking to meet new people.

So, it doesn't matter that much which ship you take, because you could find a lot of people on either one, or not, just depending on your luck of the draw.

If you just want to get away and relax, not party too much, then either one is good. I would say the crew is friendlier on Carnival, but only when they are serving you, not when its time to go ashore, etc.

I suggest you re-ask this question in the Singles Forums here and see what other singles have to say.
