Without even having sailed NCL, I can tell that the age range will vary with the length and season of the voyage. Longer cruises tend to have an older age range, and cruises during school holiday...

I generally use a backpack for my day-to-day walking around town, because it balances the weight nicely on my shoulders, but if I'm going somewhere with my DSLR and I'll want to take photos, I use a...

Generally speaking, the longer the cruise the older the demographic, whether solo or not. I think a 3 day cruise will be the exact opposite of what you are looking for. Also, higher end and...

A real travel agent will do that -- not the travel agents that are really just booking agents and work on volume, not quality.

Thanks for all your suggestions, especially Stitch Fix -- I had never heard of it. I also used to love Talbots, but no more, and that's one of the things that prompted my post today.

Where do women 40+ shop for clothes?

Actually I'm 54, but on a recent shopping trip it seems that everywhere I looked, stores seem to be aimed at either those who are in their 20s, or those who want to look like they are. And those...

I would like to do some guest lecturing on cruise ships, but that would be the extent of any work I'd like to do on board.

I think that the best way to see any place is by land - either by car, train, or bus (or bike, if that's what you're in to). I am cruising from Asia, but I am spending 3.5 days at the point of...

Was it a good experience? I was looking at the Metropolitan Marunouchi, but I'm leaning more towards the hotel Ryumeikan. Probably one of their unique solo rooms.

I don't think it's really hurting them! If it were, things would be different, but right now cruise ships almost always said full, so I don't see why they'd be moved to change. While it's true that...

The vast majority of cruise lines stopped matching strangers up to share a cabin -- it's a huge liability issue for them. Personally, I would never room with a stranger, but I know there are some...

Yes, it can happen when it is a high demand cruise and they want to seriously discourage solo travelers in order to sell the cabins to two or three passengers instead.

Only some of them........I've met a fair number of unhealthy vegans. Veganism is a lot of work, and some people just don't bother.
