I did the Panama Canal cruise solo on Princess a couple of years ago over Christmas and New Year's. We spent Christmas Day going through the canal. For me, it was fine, but then I don't mind doing things by myself. There really weren't that many families (at least not with small children), but it was also a 15-day cruise. I'm sure you won't have any trouble finding dining companions, or meeting people with whom to do things. And there may be other solos on your trip as well. Bon voyage! (Note: I'm doing another 15-day solo this holiday season - Buenos Aires to Santiago on Celebrity.)

Hey, you are lucky you can go on all of them, and afford them, and no one can critize you for taking them. I understand the addiction!

bon Voyage!

You go, girl or boy!   That’s seriously awesome.   I’m excited having two in one month but neither one is solo.

May 17th on Encore to Bermuda- likely returning November 12th I think for a 5 night to Bermuda as well. I actually thought about doing B2B 5 night ones from NYC to Bermuda in November and skipping May.

Wow, you really sound like an experienced solo cruiser so maybe you can give a first time slightly nervous solo cruiser some practical advise.

You have your cabin by yourself , I go to the buffet for meals , the ship has something going on most of the time , you meet a lot of good friendly people , I never feel lonely on the ships 🙂
