Hi, single mom, 39, travelling with 15 yo son on the Dec 28 Caribbean cruise in Carnival Splendor. Any other single parents on this one? Would be nice to have the odd dinner or drink together if so.

I wish the cruises did a better job pairing up single parents - it would be so easy - plus with social media today - Carnival has tried the ship chat thing - but why not set that up as part of check in process? Set up your profile and then you can tag your profile and click a box if your are interested in single activities. then send out tweets or onboard texts that says - This group is meeting in Havana bar at 3:00 for half price drinks.

Anyway - single mom - almost - gasp...45 and son now 19 cruising on the Sunshine for end of first year of college get away (Only way I can get him to spend time with me is to take him away from his friends - LOL!)
Sunshine May 24, 2015 Our roll call is so quiet!

This is my first cruise with children. I'll be traveling with my 2 and 4 year olds on the Carnival Sunshine. I hope this will be only the first of many cruises with my girls. Any advice?
