I'm not sure yet as my friend is being hesitant to actually commit to the trip. I'm still thinking she may choose to book it but not certain. I'm at the point that I really want to go on a cruise and just may do it by myself even if she doesn't come around. I like the fact that I would have a cabin to myself but not liking the price. Did you get an inside room, oceanview or veranda? Just wondering what I should choose if going by myself. I like the idea of a veranda but not convinced the price is worth it for a single person. Oh well figure it just may be my 40th b-day present to myself if she doesn't go. Then I think I'm in trouble as I'll probably be hooked on cruising. Only problem is I would love to do the lawn grill but not excited about doing it by myself.
Oh, you should absolutely book the cruise for yourself as your birthday gift to yourself. Treat yourself well! I have tired of trying to find someone to be my roomie on different cruises and getting constantly turned down that I just decided to go for it alone rather than stay home and have regrets... I have an oceanview cabin this time. I have always had a veranda cabin for many years but since I have to pay the single supplement I thought I better downgrade and - guess what - I did not miss the balcony at all ! I had a good-size picture window and I was just so comfortable being able to spread out - I filled the closet and had something in every drawer; and not sharing the bathroom is the best :-) You should really spoil yourself for your special birthday to remember. I'll be happy to accompany you for dinner at the Lawn Grill. I've never been one to spend extra on the alternative dining venues but I can do it this time since I have that $200 shipboard credit.
It sounds like this will be your first cruise, is that right? Oh my, you will most definitely be hooked, but thats okay. And you have chosen the one of the best cruiselines and ships - WOW.
BTW, I am quite a bit older than you. I will be 61 at that time, but I do look much younger (I have good genes).
