I was 33 when I went on my first solo cruise. But I had been travelling solo for many years before that. I did around the world trip when I was 26. 😀

I feel travelling solo really builds your confidence as you are reliant on yourself. Also you can be totally selfish, do what you want, when you want as nd where you want with out any negotiations 😀

Because cruising is so expensive I now travel with a DA, but I still do my land based holidays solo 😀

I went on my first cruise for my 50th birthday in 2015 and went solo. I will be 52 in September and will be sailing solo again to celebrate. I could not have had a better first cruise. I did meet a lot of people through my roll call. I have been on eight cruises and five of them have been solo. I have sailed solo on NCL, Royal and Carnival. I think NCL has the best activities and gatherings for solo cruisers, some of their ships have studio cabins so you don't have to pay the double supplement when you're in a cabin by yourself. Royal does give you double points when you go solo. When you sail solo you can do what you want when you want. I discovered cruising later in life and now I am addicted. I would not let not having anyone to go with stop you from cruising.
