Default Hosted singles cruises

Chris, Just make sure you do a real Hosted singles group cruise. On a regular cruise you may see 10 guys, all over 70. Hosted ones are fun . Had a compatible cabinmate on mine too.

Smile Just trying to help...

Try going to www.google.com and typing in "hosted singles cruises". You should be able to find the agencies your fellow Cruise Critic members would recommend, give feedback, etc. if they could.

Hosted singles cruises are group cruises, usually formed and hosted by travel agencies. Promotion or discussion of non Official Cruise Critic Member group cruises is not allowed on the message boards. This is per the following from the Cruise Critic Member Cruises section in the Guidelines we all agreed to follow when registering for our free Cruise Critic membership.

... Only Official Cruise Critic Member Cruises may be promoted or discussed anywhere on the boards.

Also, please note the following from the Travel Agent Recommendations section in the Guidelines:

There shall be no third-party recommendation of travel agencies on any forums within Cruise Critic. General discussions regarding the TYPE of AGENCY to be used to purchase a cruise will be allowed, as long as no recommendations for any source of purchase are posted.

Touting of your personal cruise agent or cruise line "personal cruise consultant" (or any other venue by which you purchase a cruise) is not allowed on our message boards. Postings that contain "tell them John sent you" will be removed without notice.

This means you should not ask about someone's travel agent, nor should you respond in kind. Offering to email someone your travel agent's name or info is also not allowed, nor is asking members to email you for the information.

Cruise Critic will remove violations of the "third-party recommendation" guideline without warning. Additional posts may result in permanent suspension of your posting privileges.

I hope this information will be satisfactory. Any further posts mentioning travel agency names/sites or hosted single groups will be removed.

You will be just fine and besides you have done cruises before and that is a big plus. While I have not been on the Epic I understand it is pretty good for singles/solos.
