I am very active on my roll call - and have arranged many tours with roll call buddies and staying in a hotel full of cruisers.
While many on the roll call have made arrangements to dine together I have not joined in - my thinking is a) altho I am having fun on the boards this does not necessarily mean I will want to eat dinner with these same individuals for 15 nights!; b) I will make more friends this way? and c) I have other activities planned with all these people so don't need to spend every waking moment with them.
Now I am having a bout of 'cold feet' as I envision that first night - heading to my (hopefully) large table filled with other solos (?) finding a spot and having to introduce myself and make small talk with strangers...
I am by no means a shy person and consider myself friendly and outgoing but this is a new experience for me and I am wondering how I will make out. Of course I know there is always the option to switch tables should I not enjoy my dining companions.
Any advice or input appreciated!
