Default cruising solo

hi, is any one going solo on the oriana x505n northern lights on mar 5th 2015? my sister has let me down and cancelled, and i don't think I have the courage to go alone. i'm not asking for a partner, would just like to know if other solos are going as I've never been on a cruise before, infact never been on holiday alone and this has always been my dream holiday.

Hi there & welcome to CruiseMates.
We're not on this cruise, but just wanted to suggest you check out the UK cruise boards as well, as this one is predominatly US based cruisers, there are a handful of us Brits here, but not that many, so you may find answers are very few.

Hope you find someone to share the experience with, the Northern Lights around March next year are expected to be very active.

Oriana, as with most cruise ships, are excellent at hosting 'travelling alone' groups on board, so definitely go along to at least a couple of them to see who else is there to share your experiences with, plus try & get a table of 6 or 8 so that you get to mix with a larger group and cross section of passengers in the evenings.

Hope you have an amazing cruise with memories to last forever.
