I don't know where you were, but old people or not I had the time of my life!!! Made the best of the cold weather and I felt old being so tired every night! I wish I could of smuggled a few of the crew home with me. Kathy and I had a suite, 1/2 our drawers were empty! Closets were full though!

Lot's of young single guys with no girls? I should have been on this one ha! Sounds like you both had a good time, were there shows on the ship? How about the bands were they good? Sounds like the food and service were excellent but the ship wasn't as active as let's say Carnival or Costa. Cool weather can be a bummer too. However I might be bursting into flames on my next cruise to Mexico/central america in August so you can all giggle at me sweating at the Mayan ruins! Heather and Kathy I look forward to your cruise reviews as well, please post them here or in the reader review section and let me know so I can read. I have to live through the rest of you till it's time for me to cruise again! Angelgirl Chicago just got JetBlue airlines Im so excited, as this makes California much easier to get to(direct flights) and cheaper as well as other destinations!

I saw zero single young guys without dates -- ZERO --

There were alot of 70+ men hitting on the 30-ish women, however.

All the young guys had hooked up with the female singles pretty much by the second night

I want a full report Gwydiana do tell!

Angelgirl said-
21. The ship was beautiful but boring for me because the ship attracts an older, older, senior group. I still have a ways to go before I reach that age group. I felt sorry for the young single males that booked their cruise thinking they would meet young single gals. Those guys were lonely.

That was what I was responding to about the young single guys, odd you both saw something different. Please post your cruise photos and reviews!
I hope you all had a wonderful time! Im glad more of you from this message board has now had a chance to meet face to face, perhaps a few of you will join my next cruise too.

Hey Showcat

I saw what you were responding to, however I don't think that Angelgal had a very clear perspective of the actual happenings on this ship. So, I beg to differ with her.

I will post a very detailed review, replete with pictures, later this week.

Thanks so much for the review. When I cruise I cruise alone; no worries, no hassles and that's my preference.

Hope to meet you ladies on a future cruise down the road.

Next one...Singlescruise April 1st.

Let's remember everyone has the right to express THEIR opinions, on THEIR cruise experiences, and those opinions can and do vary!!
And we love to hear all sides.

But everyone can do that without personality conflicts showing through, and personal attacks on opinions we don't agree with.
