I am very interested in the itineraries that Princess and HAL are offering for their 7 day cruise in the Southern Caribbean for mid-March 2013 departing from Florida.
I am in my early 50's and feel young at heart. I like to have fun but also want to relax without worrying about too many young kids running around.
Which of these two Lines would you recommend for a single woman who still wants to have fun?
Chantal - I've cruised solo only once on HAL. I had a good time and they did seem to treat solos well putting solos together in the dining room and putting together a few solo lunches. Those were funny as I recall a table of 12 of about 7 women and 5 guys. Four of the women weren't technically "solo" but rather "singles" (all travelling together and sharing rooms). But, the funny thing to watch was this one gal in their group that was "on the prowl." Watching her work those guys was amazing. I saw her several times on that cruise each time she was a different guy.
I've cruised Princess several times and I really enjoy it. It is comfortable and relaxing. There are lots of things to do during the day. At night I have the late seating in the traditional dining room and then I tend to go to the shows and listen to music (I'm not a dancer). I usually end the night in the martini/piano bar.
I'm going solo on the Caribbean Princess on Feb 23rd. I think that's the southern Caribbean trip you are looking at. I haven't been to Curacao or Aruba so I'm looking forward to this cruise. I'm also looking forward to relaxing on the sea days.
If you are travelling in mid-March you are in the "spring-break" weeks. I try to avoid the entire month of March for that reason.
If you can describe what you mean by "fun"- I can try to help you further.
