I'm thinking of going on a cruise in October. I've been on many but never solo. There's a lot of great info here from those who have cruised alone before, but i'm very hesitant. I'm looking forward to reading more about it and getting to know other solo cruisers. Has anyone ever gone on the NCL Epic in a solo cabin? I'd love some feedback.

Default Carnival Ecstasy 03/21 bahamas

Hey there

I am going on my first cruise ever and have decided to go alone. I am going on the Carnival Ecstasy on 03/21 to the Bahamas. I have seen several people say that we should go into the roll call for the trip. There wasnt one for the trip i am taking so i started one and there have been no responses

Hello. I saw your post and wanted to say hello. I booked the same cruise and I'm going solo/single. I'm a 37 year old male...if you want to say hello prior my email is dwordelmann@yahoo.com. I'm not a creep, disrespectful or annoying...just looking to say hello and maybe have a drink or two.

See you soon...

I do prob 98% of my cruises solo. I did the TA from Barcelona to Miami on the Epic in a studio cabin. I HATED the Epic. Way to big, way to many people, way to impersonal for me. The studio cabin was extremely small. You can get an inside sometimes for less money and you get more room. If you do the Epic, go to the studio lounge even if you aren't in a studio. The solo group coordinator should have activities planned for solo passengers.

Hey folks! What a great idea for a thread! I saw the one for guys, but somehow missed this one.

I don't necessarily travel solo, but it's close My mom goes along with me for company, but we tend to do our own things! I'm a 36 year old Southern girl and love to take cruises (much to the amusement of my co-workers and students...many who are now converts to cruising, hah).

Next up is the Elation on May 4, and then the Conquest on August 11.

So excited to find this group! I've always wanted to do a cruise solo, but nervous to do it. I'm looking at RC Brilliance of the Seas leaving Dec 16th.

Hi I might be traveling solo July 4, 2013 on the Elation out of NOLA. Might = BFFs mom had a fall and she might have to stay home and care for her. I'm excited, nervous and anxious all at the same time. Really hoping my BFF can go with me. And I would rather go alone then find someone else this late in the game. 2 weeks YES!!!
