Singles CruisesWhich cruise line offers the most for single cruisers? Solo cruisers?
You are so progressive and thoughtful! I posted on your two year old thread a while back. I am traveling with my 13 year old son, (14 at time of Thanksgiving sailing) with a relatively large group of married couples with kids. My son has certainly enjoyed the Camp Carnival activities in the past but we share a lot of activities together such as the ROPES COURSE (on Departure Day), meals, and some of the shows. He strangely, enough loves BINGO.
This reminds me of past cruise when my son (8 at time) was helping me cover some squares and told me 10 minutes into a game that we had won. I tried to confirm all letters and corresponding letters but he blurted out "BINGO" and our friends chimed in that we had a BINGO. Everyone moaned, like they do, when they are so close to a win. Needless to say, we were one square off, and to this day my friends reference this event (to my chagrin), as when Roy wanted to play "BONGO"!
I started our Carnival Magic thread (Thanksgiving Magic; Nov 24) to see if we can organize some group excursions to mix it up a bit. I love the group that we travel with but sometimes it's just nice to venture into new waters, so to speak. Any other single parents traveling on this itinerary?
We are booked on: Carnival Magic; November 24, 2013 (Is it November yet?)

Hey Boomer - My daughter and I are taking the same Carnival trip to Honduras, Belize and Cozumel on July 28. We'll be sure to tell you how it went!
MinimeAdventures- Excellent! Please do.
What excursions are you planning? We are definitely doing the CAVE TUBING/ ZIPLINE combo tour in Belize but struggling with a good tour company that will get us back to the ship on time My worst fear!
We are traveling with a large group of people and looking forward to the break. My son is getting a kick out of missing two days of school to go on a cruise. I keep on telling him to keep this under this hat! I of course will make plans to get his missing homework from his teachers in advance.
Take Care and have fun in July! Thanks again for the preview of the MAGIC in these ports...
I will be sailing on Navigator of the Seas March 30, 2014 with my 18 year old daughter. Any other single parents making this sail date? This is out of Galveston
Wow, KOOLBEANS....I will be getting off 2 wks before you get on. Have you met anyone on the Roll Calls board? Our board is pretty quiet so far. I hope it picks up as we get closer to the sailing date.
I'll be cruising with my 14 y/o DD on the Navigator March 9th for Spring Break. My 19 y/o DD will miss out since Mizzou's Spring Break isn't until the last week of March, but she'll get to go with us on the Explorer in May.
It would be nice to meet other single parents to have a drink with or hang out with for a few hours.
I am really excited about this itinerary and can't wait!!

Hello, I am planning on going on the NCL Breakaway (NY to Fl/Bahamas) and will be traveling with my 16 year old son.
I have cruised with him before and he thoroughly enjoys himself to the point that he spends very little time with me. Just wondering if there are any other single parents planning on this cruise - would enjoy having someone to eat and hang out with.
Such a great idea!! I have 2 girls (10 and almost 13) I'll be sailing with march 13 on the Carnival Fascination. I'm looking forward to spending time with them...and also looking forward to their inevitable desire to spend more time away from me than with me... Is that awful? I just need some time to decompress!!
