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 .

Independence of the Seas havin...

By Lisa West

Next week sees the start of our family cruise on board the Independence of the Seas. I have never sailed on the Indy but was lucky enough to be on the launch back in April 2008. I did really like the ship, especially the Royal Promenade so I am really looking forward to it. My biggest concern is how busy the ship will be. Having children at school means I have to travel in the main summer period, which of course jumps up the price but also makes everywhere so busy. Only time to tell..I h...

Venice is Drowning With Tourists

By Lily Canderton

Lily Canderton's blog

The Truth is Venetians do not want to live in Venice any longer as their population dwindles with tourists often outnumbering residents, partly as a result of cruise ship visitors as the mega-cruise ships’ tens of thousands of passengers spilling into its narrow streets and canals, this mass tourism is causing irreversible damage on the fragile lagoon ecosystem and is endangering the environment of the city and its lagoon.Cruising into Venice Italy is one of those magical travel moments...

Yes, Cruises Really Do Sell Out!!.

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison Ranaldi's blog

This morning a two night cruise on Celebrity Silhouette went on sale for 28th April next year.This will be the first time Silhouette has sailed from Southampton so a great opportunity to see the ship without the hassle of flying. At a lead-in fare from just 299pp including all drinks, food, entertainment and gratuities, it was a bargain.Silhouette takes nearly three thousand passengers and as I write this, there are only a handful of cabins remaining which we expect to see go in the next hour...
