Why I Love Solo Cruising

Why I Love Solo Cruising

I got hooked on cruises about 20 years ago, and have gone on about 15 or 20 of them since then. In my opinion, it’s the only way to travel!

I started cruising with family, friends and a boyfriend, and, after a breakup with the cruising boyfriend, ended up traveling alone once.

After that, I was hooked on solo cruising.

Why I love solo cruisingYou get such a “bang for the buck” on a cruise — a lovely hotel room; twice-daily steward service; good (and abundant) food; tons of entertainment, music and shows; movies; great exercise facilities and classes; travel from one location to the next;  and much more.

And you can lie around by a pool and read books,  or stay on the go with a variety of onboard activities and entertainment. There’s truly something for every mood.

And you always feel safe on the ship and with a guide and group on shore excursions.

When you travel alone, it’s a real joy to relax and be able to do whatever you want – 24/7 – Why I love solo cruisingfor a whole week.  And if you want to chat, you can eat dinner with a table full of people or talk with others just about anywhere; people on vacation are always friendly.

I’ve taken about ten week-long cruises to the Caribbean (can’t beat the relaxed atmosphere), a cruise up the California coast (love San Francisco!) and once took a three-week cruise that started in Sydney, Australia — stopped in Bora Bora and the surrounding islands — and ended in Hawaii. My next cruise starts in Venice and visits the Greek islands.

Emerald Waterways, a river cruise company that offers tours of Europe and Asia, recently published a Guide for Solo Cruisers, and they wrote about me and another solo cruiser after seeing our enthusiast blog posts. Check it out!

A cruise on the great rivers of the world, with stops every day to take in the sights in world-famous European cities sounds wonderful…
