I will say as a solo traveler, I just used the room to sleep in and shower in during the day. There was so much to do and I wanted to be outside as much as possible.

I have the Breakaway booked, but with only 59 studio cabins, I do not suspect that it will be a solo friendly. Any thoughts?

Also, for those of you that did NCL solo, how is it different from doing other lines solo. I really don't like the idea of being forced into a particular dining time which is why NCL is better for me
Howard, I've sailed only Princess and Carnival, and neither of them solo, but both lines offer a flexible dining time (Anytime Dining and Your Time Dining).

I suspect that, like you, I won't spend much time in my studio so the space will be fine. In the past I've spent time in my cabin, but it's usually been on the balcony. I'm not at all worried about the size of the cabin being small.
