I have been a lurker for years now and finally decided to "come aboard" and post. I am 55 and have been on 18 cruises, it is my preferred type of vacation. I usually cruise with my daughter and/or granddaughter. However I really would like to cruise on the Explorer on August 6th and everyone I know either cannot take the time off or does not have the money to go. I really need to just get away and relax and I am thinking about going it alone. I have never done this before and am a little nervous...should I go for it and if so any advice?
