  1. There are solo travel companies that you can travel with, solo doesn’t mean single just traveling alone.
  2. I hear you loud I clear. I think that's one reason cruising works fairly well for solo travelers, especially cruises with LOTS of sea days. If you're lucky enough to find one or 2 people to dine with, have a drink with, then you don't feel quite so alone. Your part of the community of the ship. I even go onto CruiseCritic role calls & try to organize a table in the main dining room for SOLO travelers.
  3. Most of these posts are from couples. Faving retirement as a single is very different for those of us who are single. It's very different financially, socially, etc. For example, cruising as a solo not only means double the cost, but no companion to share the experience with. Unless you have friends who are also financially able & want to travel, each cruise becomes a "will there be friendly folks or will I spend more timex alone than I barhained for?" Doesn't mean us solo folk don't retire, but it does mean the thought process, the decision, is different.
  4. Just because you’re eligible to retire doesn’t mean you have to! If you enjoy what you do, why retire? Why feel guilty retiring while your husband still has to work? Work that extra 5 years and save that extra income. Then, when your husband is ready to retire you’ll have plenty put away to sail to your hearts content.
  5. Congratulations! I keep wondering when I'm going to make the decision to hand in my keys. The thought of retiring is both frightening and exhilerating. I wish you nothing but happiness, good health and smooth sailing in your retirement.
  6. $17,640 is the 2019 amount you can earn before you owe $1 for every $2 you earn
