Default Singles Adult Cruising

I am a 59 year old woman, who is widow'd. My girlfriend and I are looking to take a cruise sometime next year. Which Cruise line offers cruises for babyboomer generation. We really don't want to meet men or woman who are 30 or even 40 years of age. We would like cruise and party with people our own age. This will be by friends first cruise, and I love cruising and I miss going on them.

I march in your shoes. Lost my hubby 8/03. Most of my friends either have spouses or too many restrictions/no interest in cruising.

Hope Pat gets this going.

Don't do Carnival, or RCL then lots of people in thier 30-40's. I hear the more elegant lines such as Crystal, Cunard, Celebrity, have more senors, so do Alaskan cruises, and cruises of longer durations I would say at the very least 7 days. Younger folks can't always afford the long trips or the European cruises, but there is no cruise that Im aware of that has any age restrictions so you will have some younger people on any cruise and probally kids too. There was an adults only pool on our ship, Im only 39 but I liked that.

You sound like a young 59, so you might be surprised by the fun you can have if you stay open to people in their 40's or even 30's. I belong to a quilting guild where most of the members are in their 50s-60s, and I have more in common with them at 41 than I would have thought. If you're trying to avoid kids though, I can definitely understand that. Sometimes I want to get away from my own two teens! I think I would try anything other than Carnival if you want an older crowd.

Hi fellow travelers!

I posted on the other thread about 50's singles. I don't want to miss any of the fun!

Can't think of a better way of getting away then Cruising haven't been on one for years.

I would not rule Carnival cruises out. I cruised on the Miracle in June 04 out of NY to Canada and enjoyed my singles/solo dining situation and some great late night entertainment.
IMHO, because of the lower single supplements, Carnival gets a good mix of singles/solos on its cruises. But, even thru I am sometimes tempted, I would not cruise on this line during summer or the Christmas/New years holidays.

I am looking to go on my first cruise alone either the week before christmas or christmas week. What are my chances of meeting single or divorced 30ish women on a 5 day western carribbean trip. I plan on taking Carnival because of the price. Thanks! Greg

I actually enjoy Carnival. Have done 3 (Triumph 99, Spirit 01, Victory 04) since I am over 50. The food, entertainment and other options appeal to me. That said, I am booked on the NCL Jewel w/ an over 50, retired femal friend.

I think I might be interested in the Golden Princess Singles Cruise leaving 4/22/06,
To South Caribbean from Florida. Anybody know anything about this.
Haven't booked anything yet. Still looking.

Thanks guys, you have really been a help, and now I know I won't be the only Single aboard a Cruise.

Greg your chances are good if you book a singles cruise, more ladies then men at least on mine I think. If it's a regular one try talking to the matree'd and see if he can seat you with some single ladies, also just talk to people and be friendly, everyone relaxes once the ship sails most people leave their problems at the port. Good luck

Thanks Lolo for your help. I have booked the Carnival triumph on dec 10th. I will take your advice and talk to the maitree'd when I get on the ship. I should have no problems meeting women as I am attractive and outgoing. I plan to go on one of the singles cruises next year. Greg
