The singles’ cruise on Ruby Princess was put together by a tour operator specializing in themed vacations.
To tell the truth, I was kind of excited to find out what it was like to stand on my own two feet.
So it was with a bright sense of optimism that I sampled some of the options available for single people, including online dating and a singles’ cruise vacation.
Our honeymoon was with Princess and in the two anniversaries we have shared since, we’ve celebrated them aboard a Princess cruise ship. My advice to anyone considering a singles cruise is to take it, even if you’re traveling alone.
You’re going to have fun and will meet wonderful friends, both male and female, who you will keep in touch with long after the ship has docked.
After the end of a long marriage, dating was like entering a different universe.
Married at 19 and divorced 28 years later, I had never been on my own before.Both of us were wearing the blue wristbands those on the singles’ cruise wore to identify themselves to each other.Dan said, “I don’t know about you, but I like you a lot.Scrolling through the list of passengers in the chat room, I noticed Dan’s profile picture.He had Photoshopped a black bar across his face, which made me curious. Both of us had decided another marriage was not an option.Thanks to the singles’ cruise I took with a girlfriend, I could now say I had friends scattered across the U. There were no “Love Boat” clips playing in my head.
