Charlie had a wonderful solo time on the 6/18 Alaska trip. We didn't even need to adopt him!
Part of it was Carnival placing him at a table with other singles in the dining room, and part of it was his charm and outgoing personality. I think he actually knew everyone on the ship by the time it was over!
He stayed in Alaska for a few days, but I'm sure he'll post when he gets home. Seeing his experience totally eased my mind about cruising solo on Carnival. I can't say about other cruise lines though. We heard from some staff, and some former cruisers, that some other lines are not fun for younger singles.
Re: Just to ease the solo Alaska cruisers' minds...
thanks for letting us know that denise.
i will be solo on my cruise to alaska on the spirit in sept. although i am used to being on my own (divorced for 16 yrs) i was still a little concerned about mixing in and possibly being 'adopted' by some nice people.
i do not need alot of attention but during the meals and on the deck it is nice to know that i am certain to feel welcome and a part of the 'cruising group'. it is also well known from my family, friends and co-workers that i have a nice personality and make friends easily. i will make sure i take these traits with me.
from what i have read on the boards, carnival is a good ship for having fun and meeting great people for talking, having a drink, lounging with and possibly doing some shopping together.
cant wait to get on the ship and feel the whole cruising experience.
