I just booked a last minute solo cruise on RCI 12 day Med and leave in a few weeks. This is my first cruise where the airfare is more than the cruise!
I have completed 2 solo cruises and both have been with DCL. The first cruise was a Med cruise where I met a bunch of other solos and had a wonderful time. This was actually the best vacation I have ever had. Met alot of really friendly people who I still keep in touch with.
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.
Which sailing will you be on? I am looking at Serenade in July. Will be solo myself.
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: Hawaii, Kiribati, & French Polynesia, a one-month long South Pacific adventure!
