All I can tell you all is that I had a magnificent time. I did what I wanted when I wanted, had the entire cabin to myself, found a few other singles to go to dinner with if I wanted and we always sat with other people and when I wanted to skipped dinner, etc. Excursions were fine also. I did most through the ship, but booked privately in Antigua (Segway tour). Absolutely the best time I ever had. Met a gay couple on one of my excurisons and hung out with them that day as well as a second excursion they ended up on with me. Watched MUTS, movies in the Princess Theater, in my cabin, went to shows (sometimes alone and sometimes with another lady). I was busy whenever I wanted to be. I also had the luxury of going to my cabin in the afternoon for a little nap so I could stay up later in the evening. I went to Crooner's before dinner, which is where I met up with the other single people. There was just so much to do. I had my alone time whenever I wanted that as well. It was just the best time.
I was on the Emerald Princess and wouldn't hesitate to go solo again. Thank you all for your guidance and encouragement prior to my cruise.
