I am solo on the Vision of the Seas next Friday (6 days!) going from my hometown San Diego through the Panama Canal to Fort Lauderdale. It's my first time on Royal Caribbean. I usually go on Holland, but a great price enticed me. My roll call is quite lively and I think they will welcome me even as a solo.

Hope this cruise was all you had expected it to be and then some despite the weather. The storm coming through though just adds more adventure to the trip.

Did all the "first" cruising solo fears subside within a reasonable amount of time I hope? Based on your review it looks like it did.

Wait till your next solo cruise, I trust there will be another?

I have zero fears of cruising Solo! In fact, I already booked Freedom solo for Oct 2013 (cow sweet) and ill be back on Monarch in March. I loved it! Met so many people who all thought I was crazy at first when I was alone, but no one really "judged" me because of it. I'm starting to wonder if ill ever let anyone cruise with me again! Ha

Funny you say that, I was having that same conversation with my director yesterday when we were talking about me heading off next week for solo for 9 days. We were talking about traveling with groups small or large the usual complications of always worrying if the others are having a good time.

Needless to say I know even after this next solo I'll still cruise with others but most likely more of my future cruises will be solo...and purely by choice!

Congrats on booking your next two! Freedom of the seas is on my list, hopefully in the near future, every review I see of that ship amazes me.

I'll start my "Live" solo cruise report a week from today. I'm stoked, I can't wait to get back aboard a ship.
