have a great time. No doubt you will make new friends at every meal. I've found open seating is a great opportunity to meet someone new.

thanks Thoth.....hopefully I'll get a bit more "involved" in ship activities this time rather than keeping myself to myself so much
Reckon some new cruising friends could do the trick

I tend to be an extrovert on a ship, but an introvert in real life.

I can vouch for that. In fact, I have video evidence.

Hey Wayne, how's it going.

Back on Carnival for us come January.

Hello Vance & Abigail ! It is just great hearing from you.
Uh..oh ! video evidence !! Just don't blackmail me with my silliness if I ever run for congress...not that I would ever run for congress.
It was fun, that was for sure !
You two have a great cruise in January. My next cruise is September, which is Princess to Alaska. I just got off the plane from London with my parents. With the exceptions of the airports and "Tube" stations, we had a blast.
party on !
Wayne

I travelled with my parents, but was treated as a solo traveller (as I had my own cabin and was on my own a lot) on the Seaboun Soujourn Mediterranean run this past April 6-13. I was invited to a hosting table with crew/entertainment/lecturers almost every night, and really enjoyed that. At lunch, or dinners where I wasn't invited to a hosting table, if I wanted to sit with others, the crew were happy to direct me to a table with people willing to share, or if not, seat me on my own (assuming I wasn't with my parents). There were various events during the day, including golf games, bridge games, wii for the younger members, and lectures. True, most people I met were older than me (I'm in my late 20s) but they were still loads of fun, and I agree possibly more fun and active than some people my own age can be!
