I'm booked on that cruise... This is my first one with vtg... but i've done singles cruises with other agencies. I've sailed on other princess ships before..... I'm sure it will be fun.

Don't forget to buy a Halloween costume , The whole ship dresses up for the halloween partys . Just out of curiosity Where are you from and How old are you ?

Today, I signed up with vacation to go, Western Carribean cruise sailing on October 30th/05 on the Star Princess. This is my first cruise, Romeo told me that it is going to be the largest group ever, they arleady have over 200 singles signed up. I cannot wait, I am so excited, I will be counting the days on my finger tips.

I have been looking at the cruise for some time. There are a lot of reasons I'm "on the fence" . One of them was that I did not like this company's better business bureau rating. Does anybody have any personal expereinces with this travel company they care to share? (I hope that's allowed).

I haven't had any experiences with this company they started doing singles cruises I think last year.I have experience with singlescruise.com I've been on five cruises with them and Iam going on this years halloween cruise on the glory oct 29th-nov5th out of port canveral this their most popular cruise of the year last year they had 550 singles on it that should tell you something about a company if they can get number of people on cruise.This year they are having two different cruise for halloween that will have around 300 each this year.The glory october 29th-november 5th and an 8 day cruise out of FLL . Iam also going on the mardi gras cruise in febuary If you have any questions feel free to e-mail me at anytime wildgirljen68@yahoo.com

Well TD, I cancelled on the sc.com Halloween cruise for the same reason that you're on the fence with VTG. I called the BBB and AG in Michigan and was not happy with what I was told... so I did book with VTG. Whoever you book with, make sure you use a credit card.... that is your best recourse!

Wait, what did you hear from the BBB?

I'm going on the Halloween cruise on Carnival Legend, but I booked directly through carnival. I don't mind paying extra, but I SC's their price was over $100 more for the same exact room.

And Jen, did you see the same Mardi Gras cruise is being offered by VTG for less?

I wasn't happy with their rating. I was having difficulty getting information getting info I wanted on my booking from sc.com so I was just not comfortable with the booking so I canelled. I have used several different agencies including sc.com (before they were sold) ... and never had any trouble getting information about my booking and decided this wasn't worth the trouble. So I booked w/ VTG and have had great response from Dixie and have encountered no troubles.

go With singlescruise.com I have never had any problem with them at all.The company has been doing singles cruises alot longer then VTG.Iam very happy with them I think your best bet is to go with better known for there singles cruise.They have the best cruise directors. Two of our cruise directors have actually worked for carnival.So they have plenty of experience in this area. We even have the Pat Hagan Going on this cruise She's in charge of this singles section on this board.One other thing you haven't see too many people saying that then went with VTG on this board you see alot more threads about singlescruise.comand very few people have anything bad to say about this company.One other thing is that they can get a huge amount of people to go on there cruises last year even though it was to many we had 550 on the halloween cruise in our group so that's why this year they are having two differnet halloween cruise they have about 300 each.I don't think VTG can even get close to those numbers.
I saw that VTG was a little cheaper for the mardi gras cruise I think singlescruise will probably have more activities then VTG that's probably why.
If you have any questions feel free to e-mail at any time wildgirljen68@yahoo.com

Sorry I forgot something to say about singlescruise.com.I think Iam pretty experienced about singlescruise I have been on five of them with singlescruise.com and halloween will be my 6th and mardi gras will be my 7th cruise with this company i don't think anyone can say that they have been or going on that many singles cruise with VTG because they are so new.I also haven't seen any review about VTG on this board it's mostly about singlescruise.com that should tell you something also about a company.

If you have concerns.... get all your information from all available resources and make an informed decision. Always pay with a credit card because that is your best recourse. I've learned over time when it comes to travel that opinions of others factor very little into decisions because there are bias' all around. Enjoy whatever you choose!

I'm flying into Orlando on the 28th from NH and then on the 30th either I'll take a puddle jump flight or my dad will drive me over to Fort Lauderdale.

I can speak for both agencies. I've been on 4 SC.com cruises and 1 with VTG back in May. With SC.com, I have a blast. I can't think of a single time that I didn't come back with a story to go with each picture I took. I've met lots of people that I still keep in contact with. There's are plenty of activities that you can do, and if you don't like them, there are plenty of people to hang with. To be honest, the cruise with VTG was nice. The cruise directors were cool, but there weren't that many activities, and I would have probably gone to more if I remembered that they were going on. That's one I'll give to SC, the directors always remind you of the activities. My trip with VTG reminded me of the first day of school, when everyone's getting to know each other, but it lasted for 3 days. I'll try them again if I see a cruise that I find interesting, but only if there isn't anything with SC.

Hi!
What date will you be on the Golden Princess? ( I was too lazy to count the days!) I just booked it for 4/22/06, my first ever solo trip!! I'm hoping to find people on the boards to hang around with onboard!
