Thanks Nancy for those encouraging words and suggestions for how to go about meeting others on the ship. I have only cruised one other time, and that was with my husband and both of our kids, so I didn't have the fear of being all alone on the ship at any given time.
Since you have cruised this ship, can you tell me anything about the evening entertainment? We had sailed Carnival before, and they had the evening show nightly with wonderful entertainment that I always looked forward to after our dinner. Is the Radiance's evening entertainment at the same time every evening? I had read somewhere that If we chose the late dining option, that we may be missing out on some of the entertainment. Do you have any info/suggestions on this matter?
I really did appreciate your last reply, It gives me a sense of feeling as though I will be OK traveling solo.
