If you are asking if we think a cruise would be suitable for you then the answer is yes. Whichever ship you go for I suggest you opt for fixed seat dining on a large table. This way you get to meet the same people every evening and have someone to talk to and possibly meet up with each evening, whereas with freestyle (or similar) dining you may never meet the same people twice! This will rule out some lines where all dining is on a casual basis.

Nice to see a sensible and helpful answer rather than the sarcastic "so".

But to be fair, you haven't actually asked a question, just stated you are a single female aged 50!

This is my 2nd attempt to answer your question. Cruise co. didn't post my 1st for some reason. Anyway its very difficult to actually recommend a cruise cos people like different things. I suggest you go to page one of this site and click on TOPICS then scroll down to the singles sections. Lots of people have asked your question. Good luck .

Impossible for me to recommend a cruise for you, cos what I like you might not. Best thing to do is go to page 1 of this site, click on TOPIC scroll down to SINGLE PASSENGERS and you will find lots of questions and answers on travelling alone. Good luck.

Wonderful Mexico

By Neil Holmes

Neil Holmes's blog

It was time for my annual week away with great friends. Last year we went to New York, which was a little cold so this year we went to warmer climates.We stayed at Riu Cancun in Mexico which was a perfect location to the bustling nightlife.We boarded our flight in Manchester the day after and inch and a half of snow fell, so yes there was a two hour delay but that did not bother us. 10 hours later we had swapped the minus 2 degrees to a more relaxing 28 degrees.The hotel was fantastic, all i...
