I have no experience of this ship/cruise line but I do hope you have a fab holiday.
I would be interested to hear about your life as 'solo' passenger as I have a short list of must do holidays and cruises which my husband has no interest in at all, probably as they are mostly cold weather spots ie. Antartica and polar bears in Churchill. So I too am thinking of the solo route. A shame we can't start a group of like minded people who want to travel to places our spouses/partners have no desire to go to.
It's very interesting to see your comment about single passengers.I've been on a few cruises with my husband and we have really enjoyed them but my husband has announced that he is "bored with the Caribbean " now! I know it's because he is an avid radio control model aircraft flyer plus now he has a jet engine model plane! He spends all of his spare time flying so going on a cruise is a chore for him! He is quite happy to go on ordinary holidays eg to Malta or Greece ( you see other people flying their models there! ) but cruise ships hold no fun for him anymore. On the other hand I just adore going to the Caribbean and can't get enough of that wonderful sunshine and sparkly beaches and colourful life. We are in our early sixties now and also are bikers so I can't complain.We do still get some time away together. We both enjoy visiting ancient buildings and churches etc. It does seem a great idea though for ladies who have uninterested husbands ( going on cruises that is ! ) to get together and form a club or society. We could have a pool of ladies who would be looking for other lady companions to go on holiday with them. Incidently I did meet some ladies once on a cruise who took pot luck when they went away and shared a cabin with another elderly lady who was unknown to them. The antics that she got up to would make a vicar blush so I will draw a veil over that. Generally though it could be a great idea to have a kind of a "solo companion " club. Sue.
Hi I was interested to read your comment on solo passengers as I am going on Vision on 15th Feb to southern caribbean on my own. I am a widow early 60's and never cruised before so slightly apprehensive. All advice welcome. Thanks Vicky.
Hi I saw your last comment. I'm on the Explorer of the Seas at this very minute, using the ships computer! I'm enjoying the holiday but I wont be sailing out of Bayonne New York again! The ship is ok but the journey to the Caribbean is a drag! The weather didn't perk up for four days! It's better getting a ship straight out of somewhere like Barbados as it's usually instant sunshine. I can give a fuller description of this cruise when I get home on February 14th. It's been ok travelling as a single lady but more about that later!It has its plus and down side.
