Considering a cruise 1st time ......would prefer to do it with a friend 😊

Hi all, I’m a young 66, widow with one daughter who lives away from home.

I would 💜to try a cruise but am reluctant to take the plunge (well not literally I hope !!!!!) alone.

I live in Merseyside. Looking forward to hearing from any like minded ladies who fancy a 2 week cruise around the Med early 2019??

Hi all, suggest you also consider Norwegian Cruise lines who are the only cruise line to address both the financial and social challenges of single cruisers. A number of their ships have an exclusive area dedicated to single travellers. There are around 100 single studio cabins, a bar and lounge, all in an area that is not accessible to other passengers. This means that if you pop in for a coffee, cocktail or whatever, you know that everyone else is also single. There are even white boards for guests to put up notices, perhaps to arrange to go ashore together or go and see one of the shows. One word of warning: they are very popular and these cabins are usually the first to sell out!

Hi, I’ve just read your posting and wondered how you got on finding a cruise companion? I’m a single lady from Merseyside and wanted to take a cruise January 2020.

Hello MitziMavis… Do you have your eye on a particular cruise? I've been thinking of a Caribbean cruise in the same time frame. This would be my first time solo. Male, 55 here.

I am a happily single 56 who booked a great single cabin deal from Athens on the 10th May 2020, tips, drinks and beverages included for less than £500- return BA flights less than £100-

Let me know if you'd like to join, if you share the price will be cheaper.

Please take the plunge ,cruising is one of the best form of holiday ever. You can never be bored as there are so much to do on board. The ships are literally like a floating city. In saying that ,I have only been on Princess Cruises. Good luck
