Then I booked a DCL solo cruise to Alaska (my second cruise to Alaska). This trip was not so great. Just met a few solos and not my type. The people I met (even on the roll calls) tended to stick together.

I've sailed solo 3 times on NCL. One of those times on the Epic in a studio cabin. I was quite comfortable each time, as I travel alone often enough.

On the Epic though there is definitely a lot more effort put into solo activities and get-togethers. I like being able to eat alone or with some people that I meet and want to have a meal with, their set up allows for both which I like.

All of my cruises so far have been solo and they have been aboard HAL and Carnival ships. As different as both cruise lines are, I can't say I have a favorite among the two, but I do enjoy both of them. My next cruise aboard Disney Wonder will also be solo, and I'm looking forward to it.

Next Cruise: 21-day B2B on the paradise known as the Caribbean!

Future Cruises: TBA
