What destination and/or cruise line will I feel the least lonely/stupid for being all by myself...
Let's see, you might feel smart if you paid less than 200% of standard pp fare for the cabin. OK, HAL offers lower single supplements on some cruises, so score one for HAL.
Let's see, you probably don't want to be lonely for longer than 7 days, so you can eliminate a bunch of cruises to Alaska and Hawaii.
Hmmm, how are you for Coastals from Seattle or Vancouver into San Francisco, LA, or San Diego? About 3-5 days, nice to sail into San Francisco under the Golden Gate and you can load up on goodies to take home.
Else, Mexico might be good during the fall/winter time when your area gets greyed out (know about the winters being from Seattle years ago).
Carnival maybe, Royal, better, HAL or Princess, good for the coastals if you would like to go upscale.
Then again, you could shake the family tree to see if any of the kin would like to sail so you don't have to go solo. That said, there are usually a bunch of us solos aboard, more gals than guys, so you may find another gal travelling solo to hang with. 8)

I think the question I would like to ask any "expert" solo cruisers is this--
These are the three destinations I am contemplating for a solo cruise--Hawaii (my number one favorite place but I really should expand my horizons and try something else), Mexico--it can be pretty inexpensive and from what I heard..fun...or Alaska. I'm in Washington State so it wouldn't be difficult to just drive the 60 miles to Seattle and go.
I've only been on one other cruise--NCL--Pride of Aloha and I loved it but I wouldn't mind trying a different cruise line.
But my husband hates cruising so he won't be going...it'll just be me. What destination and/or cruise line will I feel the least lonely/stupid for being all by myself?
Thank you in advance.
