Default Who plans to go on a VTG cruise next year??

Hey all!! I was planning on going on my first singles cruise and wanted to get acquainted with all of you. I am especially interested in getting to know those that will be cruising with VTG next year, 2007. I think hearing from all of you may help me decide on which cruise to go on, so any input is greatly appreciated Hope to make many new friends and who knows what else.
Thanks,
Vol4life

I'm booked on the Halloween VTG cruise out of Miami and am considering the one in March. It's either going to be the one in March or a singles trip to Morocco. I have to decide soon!

I am also planning to cruise with VTG Halloween, on Carnival Pride ship out of Long Beach, Calif.
I think whatever ship you cruise on will be great for Halloween. It is the ultimate cruise because of the beautiful costumes that people wear. Angel

I am planning on going on a VTG singles cruise in either Aug or Sept of 07. I have used them for both singles cruises and just reg cruises. They were wonderful for both. No matter what, you will have a good time with them. They have a lot going on while you are on ship as well as off ship. They make it very easy to meet others. My first singles cruise was with them, and I went alone. Had a wonderful roommate from Canada, and had the time of my life. Go for it!!!!!

Default VTG Cruises for 07

One cruise is scheduled; the April 1st Singlescruise out of Ft. Lauderdale; unless I hit the lotto I will be only doing one cruise; also dating a guy near my home so hopefully not too many Singles cruises ahead, lol.

Look around at the other singles cruise companies as well. I hear that singlescruise will have a large group on their april 1st cruise. Just heard they added an astrologer which sounds neat.

I've priced out airfare, but haven't booked yet. Trying to decide if I want to arrive more than a day early and explore Ft Lauderdale. I just booked the cruise Saturday, but I'm excited already!

Angelgal, I've never sailed with VTG before; do they offer pre-cruise hotel packages? Forgot to ask the agent when he called. Just curious.

thanks!

Are you booked with VTG? I am debating with myself. I have a great cat 1a room (w/ picture window) booked for $618 or so but can do a 4A with VTG on the same cruise for $745. I don't know if what they add to the cruise is worth $125 and giving up my window.

What do you guys think?

I guess the $618 is booking on your own so with that in mind remember you are getting more from VTC than just a 4A cabin. You will also be invited to their onboard parties and fun activities along with having a chat board to be involved with before hand. There are other things that I am sure the some of the experienced VTC'ers here can tell you about.

Best of luck and remember that if you go the cheaper route you will still be able to meet the other singles around the pool and on shore excursions, disco, etc but you will NOT be allow in their private parties and to be quite honest from my observation they seemed to hang around each other a lot because they had already started communications prior to the cruise. I think that if the difference is only $125 I would go with the group and take the 4A and the parties but that is just my thought. As an experienced cruiser I really don't need the host for information but I noticed they had their table set up each day at different time periods and a board to let people know what the days activities were. They were also there to help answer questions for those who haven't cruised much.

Vince is right and for the private parties drinks are usually included. It's not impossible to mingle with the singles but it would not be as much fun during dinners and such not to be with the group. They usually plan one or two group shore excursions or meeting places, such as local bars in the ports. If you have never done a singles cruise I say try it. No guarentee on romantic hookups, but you should come off the boat with new friends and potential future cabin mates. I now have friends all over this country and in others I have met on singles cruises, and this to me is the best part. You should have lots of laughs and many memories.
