This will be my first solo cruise. I'm a bit nervous, but I'm really hoping there are other solo cruisers on this sailing. Currently, the roll call for my sailing is dead.
I had originally planned a land vacation to St. Lucia, but all of my friends backed out for various reasons. I considered going by myself, but the cost for a solo traveler was through the roof! The cost for a 5 day/4 night vacation was more than a week long vacation on a cruise!
So, I got the bright idea to look at a cruise for my birthday more seriously. I wasn't going to book right away, but wait to see if Carnival dropped their prices so I could take advantage of their Pack-n-Go rate. I was watching 4 different cruises and then saw this sailing had a resident's rate promotion going on that was cheaper than all of Carnival's other rates so I booked it! But now I'm by myself.
I think my main concern is I like to take a bunch of photos and will not have anyone to take photos of me. And yes, I will ask people to snap photos for me, but it's different when you bug someone who knows you.
Anyhow, please tell me someone else will be joining me. I think there's only 4 or 5 other people on the roll call.
Oh, and if I didn't state it, I am a female who will be celebrating her 30 something birthday.
