Default Best cruise shisp for singles?

How about it all you veteran cruisers, what is your absolute favorite cruise ship for singles and why? I think it will be interesting to have opinions and experiences shared with other solo cruisers so let's hear it.

Pat,

My favorite cruise ships (four identical sisters) are MV Sun Princess, MV Dawn Princess, MV Sea Princess, and MV Ocean Princess. What do I most like about these ships?

>> Interesting itineriaries and shore excursions

>> A very classy product at an affordable price

>> Very friendly and responsive officers, staff, and crew

>> A diverse array of on-board activities that appeal to all tastes

>> Organized events for singles and solo travellers

>> Magical teakwood lounges on the Promenade Deck (Warning: If you elect to try these, do so on the shady side of the Promenade Deck!)

>> Lots of opportunities to meet other passengers, most of whom are very friendly

>> Great cuisine, including pizza to die for

>> Great entertainment, including both Broadway-style and Vegas-style shows and specialty acts

>> Dancing (two distinct venues with live music from three groups, in addition to the disco)

>> A program for children and teens that really works (you won't find them hanging out at the adult activities)

>> A layout of the public spaces that enhances the activities onboard

>> A very wide diversity of age groups (children through seniors)

I'm not sure that being single has anything to do with it, though. I would recommend these ships for married folks, honeymooners, familes, and second honeymooners, too!

Norm.

What a great idea! Perhaps we should organize our own singles cruise. Anyone interested?

Hi Norm,

I only recently found this site. It looks like there's enough activity in the "singles" category to organize our own singles cruise. What do you think? What a great time we could all have with all our years of cruising experience to share with each other.

Your thoughts?

I'll go if you can find one with a low single supplement. Russ

I don't know how many of the posters here post at Cruise Critic, but the singles board has been discussing getting together for a cruise.

Norm, how many times have you cruised these ships. They sound wonderful. Thanks for sharing. BTW, do they have a party to introduce singles?

Guys, I'm gonna work on this. I think it would be neat to get a Cruisemates Singles cruise together. Would sailing out of Miami be okay...or what about New Orleans. Give me some feedback.

Pat, that is great! I hope it works out! If you want, I'lI round up the others at Cruise Critic (if they're not already posting here) and let them in on it too. The more the merrier. Of course, living so close to New Orleans, that port gets my vote! If you need any help, just let me know.
