Island Princess 9/20/07: 19 days Pacific Panama Canal
 
This will be my first time visiting Panama Canal. Looking for any tips and/or insights. Much appreciated! Thank you.

I will be traveling alone .... Are there young single travelers out there??

NO....... ONLY SENIORS IN THEIR 80'S will be on your cruise. Learn to play cards because that is their favorite pass time game. Also pack a lot of books to read. Most cruise ships have a library too.
Seniors go to bed early too so the only fun people to talk with will be the crew workers/bartendars.
Pack some bug spray so you don't get bitten by a mosquito. Learn a few words in Spanish like 'Dos XX's por vavor. "No hablo espanol". Carry a photo of your ship so the taxi driver knows where to take you back to your cruise ship. Beware of a possible revolution. You never know.
HAVE A GREAT CRUISE!!! HAVE A BLAST!!! Bad gal :roll:

Oh... I forgot to add that you may meet a mother and daugher team. The daughter will most likely be in her 40's on up in age. Mom will go to bed early so that way you will have time to hang out with the daughter.

Handy hint, dress in nice clothes to impress the ladies. You never know when you will meet a hottie gal who has gone on the ship for romance. You will have a lot of days out at sea so choose wisely. Take your time in looking at all the gals.

Once you have chosen a gal to hang out with...... buy her a rose for her cabin. Then later on buy her a real silver tiny bracelet that will only cost you approx. $20. If you really like the gal then buy her a corsage/flower for her to wear on the second formal night. Take photos together... I am sure she will be the one to buy the formal photo from the photographers.
Pack a cheapy camera to take lots of photos together.
The important thing is to be classy on the cruise and be polite too.
You will have fun, fun, fun. I promise. Angel

And don't forget a few nice shoes, young PUA-in training. Gals appreciate them. Good hunting!

AG, weren't you in that movie, Dangerous Liaisons? :wink: :wink:

I have heard that people get really impressed by designer shoes for men.
Also, I get impressed when guys wear black silk shirts and pants because it looks good and it feels good. Silk underwear is nice too. :wink:

Hey cruiser guy, I would like to be in a real life situation where a guy spoils me with flowers and jewelry. I don't ask for much. 8) AG

So happens silk also comes in handy for layering in winter. Needed silk under the tux while doing Boots and Black Tie. You would have enjoyed that ball, AG.

Hey diver guy, we see things differently in life. I am sometimes misunderstood with what I have to say to people. I don't always understand you either. I received your personal e-mail and I felt it was a negative message. Please don't do that again. :roll: Angelgal

ARE YOU FLIRTING WITH ME, AG!?!?! :shock: (((SARCASM))) I think you're too classy gal, and I am no where near your caliber. I appreciate your insights and I will flower your advices if/when I run into my better half. just teasing with you. And, I hope you do not find my observation offensive or rude. :wink:

well, I plan to practice my Espanol during this cruise since I will be in Spain for a month in several weeks. I am also looking forward to several more cruises toward the end of this year =) Thank you again for your valuable insights and tips.

AG, mea culpa - absolutely nothing negative intended. In the virtual world we just miss all the subtleties and clues that context our everyday conversations. LOL

Indeed, we all see things differently in life, but we all find fun and adventure on the high seas!

Bear, I am just giving you some of my observations of relationships that develope on cruise ships. I have noticed that some gals get real happy and impressed when a guy sends them flowers to their cabin.
I was having dinner with a group of singles on a cruise ship when a gal opened up a box and found a tiny silver bracelet that a guy had given her . It made her soooo happy. They spent the rest of the week together.

I don't like to flirt with the guys on this message board. I have attracted trolls who were super negative towards me. I like to play it safe and just talk to the guys and gals here on cruise-mates.
I enjoy talking about cruising and other things just for fun. My next cruise isn't until Sept. so I try to bring up different topics to keep us all entertained. Sometimes people mis-interpret what I say to them. Angel

Angelgal August 5th, 2007 01:14 PM

I forgot to say that my wish is to attract a guy on a cruise ship that will send me flowers to my cabin. If he really likes me.... to give me a small gift of jewelry to remember him on the wonderful time we have had together. That is all I meant. I love flowers and jewelry and I buy them for myself all the time, and for my friends when they have a birthday. Angel

I concur!! Well said, mr divemaster :) I'd like to learn scuba someday, but it's not on my list this year or next. I am more interested in reaching the sky with paragliding :)

Divemaster August 5th, 2007 08:50 PM

Good luck parasailing - alas, an accident involving L5 keeps me from that sport or parachuting.

Just over at Sea World's aquariums today with my nephew and son. Speaking of seeing thing diiferently - most folks never realize that most of our world lives on the other side of the glass - we land creatures are really just the gold fish in the bowl. LOL

parasailing is not the same as paragliding. There's a big difference. :)

Parasailing vs Paragliding
 
Thanks for the correction - a difference, indeed LOL - must have had cruising on my mind. :D But neither parasailing nor paragliding will work for me, although kiddo and I see parasailing all the time when cruising. Used to see paragliders up Highway 1 in California, over in Yosemite, and down in Santa Barbara. Kiddo's troop does standard gliders up around Boerne (the SM's an old USAF pilot).
