Default OCEAN OR RIVER CRUSING = ADVISE PLEASE

I am travelling solo for the first time. Looking at a cruise on October 2009. Decided on HAL Rotterdam Black Sea/Egyptian or River cruise on the danube. Can anyone help me make a decision as to which one will be easier to get to know people as a single traveller. I am a senior, young at heart and mind. I am open to tips and suggestions. Thanks Raizzel.

To get to know the local small towns it would be best to take a River Cruise, I have made two tours on the rivers of Europe, small ships around 140 passengers,always open seating so you get to meet many of the guests,and the food is bought daily. Its a great way to see the people and the sights.

river cruise..fewer passengers but most will fit your age demographic..it's a much slower pace and gives you more time to get to know your fellow passengers..lots of unattached women

Not only are there plenty of nice women on-board but as you like art you will get to see plenty on the rivers cruise. I have used Vantage and Grand Circle and they are both excellent,these two and HAL are my choices of cruise lines.
