Kristen, I am a 31 year old male in Colorado. I went with them in March, and I am going with them in October for Halloween. The big pro is that you meet other singles, and you have private parties with the group. It was so great to find someone to talk with while sunning by the pool. Pat Hagan has a great article on this topic called, :"Grooving with a Group" I highly recomend you read it. The only real con I could find is that sometimes group activities conflicted with other shipboard activities. For example, we had a party in the disco when they had $1 tables in the casino. I wound up leaving to partake of the blackjack tables. (I wound up $6 ahead, so it wasn't too bad.) I would highly recomend you come along on the Halloween cruise, partly because I will be there ;-) , but mainly because it sounds like we will have a great time.
There was one big con, though, they said we had to get off the ship at the end of the cruise :"(""""
I too will be using Discount travel for the 4th time this coming Halloween cruise I have a great time and the people are great and I make some greeat life long friends , THere is all age groups that come on these cruises but you know Age doesn't mean a darn thing and Neither does time on these cruises , You are having such a good time you just think about those things .

I find the Discount Travel Cruises to be well-organized and am really looking forward to being onboard the July 4th cruise as one of the social directors. We have over 212 singles booked. Wish you could join us!
Location: Wisconsin....about 100 miles south of the Frozen Tundra and 70 miles east of Camp Randall
Re: Discount Travel singles cruises?
I am going on my third cruise with Discount Travel over Thanksgiving. Debbie Popovich really does a nice job of organizing these singles cruises. The age group varies, but there is always a nice mixture of ages and the male/female ratio is pretty even. I have shared a cabin with someone that she matched me up with and had good results. I have also paid extra to have an inside single cabin, which is also very nice (except for not having a window!) Dinner is great because there are big tables that seat 8-10 all in one area for our group. Aside from the first night, where there is assigned seating, the rest of the cruise you can sit at any of the tables. You get to talk to alot of different people that way. I have stayed in touch with alot of the people that I have met on these cruises. As a matter of fact, I am meeting a friend that I met on the March cruise in Las Vegas in September. The cocktail parties are fun and some of the organized games seem sort of silly at first, but they are good icebreakers!
Go! You will have a great time! Maybe I'll see you on one in the future.
Thanks, everyone. I've decided Discount Travel is the way to go. Now I just need to decide between the Halloween cruise and the Mardi Gras cruise! A few of my single female friends are interested as well.
