Going solo, and not, lol. I am traveling with several other couples, however, my husband and I are in the process of a divorce so I will be in a cabin alone, the kids are sitting this one out. Hoping not to feel like a third wheel, but I love cruising. I am a 42 year old mother of two and this will be my first vacation without a family member ever.Laura, be sure to take LOTS of time to just be by yourself. Trust me, it'll be worth it. You'll be able to recharge your batteries and unwind/destress. Enjoy having the bed and bathroom all to yourself!

Hi Laura, I went solo last December on a b2b & it was great. I've been divorced for about 12 years now & my son just turned 21. The split was difficult at first, but things work out in the end. Hopefully your divorce is amicable? As tough as it may be remember to let your kids know that you both still love them & that will never change. GerryThanks for the support and advice. I am very excited!
Hi everyone. I am looking to find some solo cruising buddies myself. I love cruising and want to get back into the groove of it all. I am 30years old this month and really enjoy life and meeting new people. If any of you are like me and want to travel and see the world, I would love to connect and maybe we could become cruising buddies someday. Happy cruising to everyone.!!You might like to view my profile where you'll find a link to my blog board. There are always people looking to travel on the same cruises with other solo/single cruisers. There are Tips & Tricks as well as examples of budget cruise costs too.
BTW- I am trying to plan a summer cruise to the Caribbean and another one to western Caribbean next March. I can do as many as God will let me in between time as well.
That should be a lot of fun. Royal Caribbean is a great cruise line to go on. The crews are really friendly & want everyone to enjoy themselves. Be sure to go to the main dining room for dinner because they always have something special... GerryThanks Gerry. I heard that the buffets on cruise ships usually always have whatever they serve in the main dining rooms; that was the case on Princess (that cruise was some time ago). The specialty restaurants are a different story, however.
Took advantage of Carnivals no supplement for solos. this will be my first solo on a cruise ship (I did do a 7 day catamaran trip solo back in October). I am excited.
Any one else traveling solo on the Freedom?
