    Where's your quiet place onboard?

    Yes, those upper decks can get HOT!!! If you don't mind sweating and getting burned while sitting still, that place is for you. Any shade up there is at a premium and will move as the ship moves and the earth rotates; so it won't last long and you will have to get up and move your lounger in order to stay in the shade for any length of time. Again, the best (and coolest) quiet space indoors is the nightclub during the day. Promenade deck for lovely views, fresh air, shade (you have to sit on the shady side either port or starboard) and blissful peace.

    In my experience, every interior space (except for the nightclub) always has some music piped in, day or night... It never ceases to amaze me how they seem to think that music must always be heard no matter where you go (whether it is live or recorded). Even an empty or closed bar! Promenade deck is best for peacefulness and the real feeling of sailing on the open sea - nothing like it!

    Where's your quiet place onboard?

    Finding a quiet place on a cruise ship can be a challenge! That is one of the first things I do when I board the ship. After going on 25+ cruises over the years, I now know that outside on the Promenade deck is the nicest quietest place for me. Especially if they have lounge chairs out there. I like being outdoors, yet sheltered from the sun, and watching and hearing the passing ocean. It can lull me to sleep and many people do just that. My most recent cruises, though, have had a narrow promenade deck which only had regular chairs (so you can't stretch your legs out). Was such a disappointment! Not nearly as relaxing to sit up straight and, of course, you can't rest your head back and close your eyes. However, as odd as this sounds, the other quiet spot during the day, is the nightclub/disco! And there are usually some large upholstered chairs or sofas to stretch out on plus a great view of the sea since the location is high up on the ship.

    Solo Cruiser's Roll Call

    Bermuda is beautiful! But it won't be warm enough to go to the beach in October, most likely, because it is not in the Caribbean. There is also a possibility of a hurricane at that time. Bermuda is in the mid-Atlantic at the same latitude or longitude as North Carolina. Enjoy your cruise!

    Still no smile...Actually a rather disgusted look on your face. Was there a problem?

    That doesn't seem to bother you because you take numerous cruises solo all the time...and, I might add, to all the same destinations over and over. So you must be enjoying yourself....yet you don't smile.

    Wonder why you never smile in all your cruise pictures...:confused:

    Will be sailing on the Grandeur of the Seas to New England and Canada on August 2. Should be a nice escape from the hot and sticky weather here in the DC area in the middle of summer. Looking forward to seeing the extreme tides at the Bay of Fundy!

    I've never heard of the NCL Dream...

    OK. Well, since you did not answer my original question, I assume that the 10/31 sailing does not interest you...

    I didn't mean for you to change your plans...I meant for you to book the 10/31 sailing ALSO; that is why I asked in my message that maybe you would like to book that one TOO...oh well.

    I am a 65-year old female cruising solo on the same ship leaving on Oct. 31 for a partial Panama Canal cruise. Maybe you would like to book that one too? Bon voyage to you and let me know your impression of the Caribbean Princess.

    I assume they are the usual double amount. I haven't checked, but I am willing to pay the full single supplement since I will not have been on a cruise for over a year at that point.

    I'm also thinking about booking one of those west coast cruises on Princess next year. Would be fun if several of us single/solo folks could book the same cruise. How about it?
