I'm sure they will be fine particularly if they go off and do their own thing. There are special arrangements and gatherings for single people on board and the camaraderie they will find will amuse them more than somewhat. With regard to Silverjet, I have often thought of using it so we would be very interested to hear a report........I'm sure you'll all enjoy yourselves ....Ida Dow.

May I first comment on your description "old fogies" which I presume you are referring to anyone on the cruise that is over the age of 60. My wife and I find that people of all ages can have a good holiday together on board a ship. On our last cruise we made good friends with a couple much younger than our selves and had a brilliant time. It all depends on what you are looking for on a cruise holiday. We have been cruising for 15 years and our aim on every cruise is to have a good time. I would suggest that your sons aim should be the same and not depend on just meeting girls to have a good cruising holiday By the way we have sons over 40 and do not consider our selves as old fogies. We often go to the disco until 2-3 in the morning. Let yourselves go the Halstead family and enjoy the cruise .

How Far Is Too Far?

By Alison Ranaldi

In March last year, I booked my holiday for November this year. At the time, booking 20 months in advance seemed quite strange and hard to get excited about. On the plus side, the cost of my cruise increased by over 700 per person over the following months and it has given us lots of time to plan what we are doing and to budget the holiday by booking trips, hotels and flights at different times rather than in one go. Also, it is nice to have something to look forward to. I have had a few holi...

What has been happening over the last couple of weeks in the Cruise Industry ?There has been a lot of talk about the new Cruise ship Bliss belonging to Norwegian cruise line. I never thought there would be a day that a ship would have a race track on board . I am led to believe the track itself will be the longest at sea at nearly 1,000 feet, with four speed settings accommodating all drivers with the speed reaching up to 30 miles per hour including a special turbo boost available on each l...

Truth Behind Your Cruise Itinerary

By Emily Watts

Emily Watts's blog

Experienced cruisers will already know by looking at an itinerary how far the ports are from the main city and towns. However those that are new to cruising may be a bit miffed when booking a cruise that visits Paris or Rome they are in fact in some cases two hours away. With Paris being the capital of France you know the only water that surrounds it is the Seine. I think the most shocking one that appears is Berlin, people are thinking this will be lovely to visit but in reality it is just ...
