Re: Re: First singles cruise
The main cruise lines from the uk are:
P&O and Cunard, there both 'high brow' cruise lines with good service and food etc.. the dance floors are very large (I'm a uk based dance teacher and have taught on board MSC cruises)
the problem can be that they cater for the older brits who don't want to fly, we call them the blue rinse brigade, (after there hair colour)
There are some american ships sailing fromSouthampton/Harwich I think this would be Princess cruises
Go to Vacations to go .com and look at cruises for northern Europe or cruises cruising from London
Wish you all the best
Weather in London is hot but waiting to rain (wimbledon tennis is on it always rains then)

Re: First singles cruise

I am booked on the New Year's Cruise you are thinking about. This is my first cruise, let alone singles cruise, so I can't tell you much about how they compare. I do think it will be a really fun cruise, the ship sounds like it has lots to do. I have spoken with Dixie at Vacations to Go, she told me about a month ago that the age range for the group was mid 20's to 60's. I'm in my uppper 30's American living in Germany, flying to Florida for a cruise!?! Like I said, it looks like fun.

Sorry I can't answer any more of your questions. But I'd love to hear if you find any singles cruise out of England.
