I often cruise solo and my tip is to dine in the main dining room for breakfast and lunch on sharing tables (rather than the Lido Buffet Restaurant). I’ve met so many interesting people and am sometimes pleased when in the Commodore Club and other bars when people I’ve met ask if they can join me. The staff are also very good company either when I’m sitting at the bar or even at a table if they are not busy they will have a chat about my day and recommend some drinks to try.
I go to the afternoon teas too and often end up sharing a table with nice people as the teas can get very busy. I’m normally fortunate at cocktail parties to see someone I’ve met at a meal time. If I don’t, I find a seat and people watch.
I’ve not been to a singles mingle before so can’t comment on those.
I love the insight lectures, planetarium and films so during the day I’m often rushing about ship to get to my next activity or meal. I find I’m the opposite of board on a transatlantic and if I am ever stuck for something to do, I look at travel guides in the library.
Im sure you’ll love your transatlantic.
