Yes, I can. I have cruised many times solo, but by choice. Sorry your companion had to cancel, but do not fear. I flew into Barcelona alone, walked around the main plaza on my own, no problems. After the 12 night cruise, I scheduled a couple days of relaxing in Barcelona, and by then was so brave I took the subway. Dinner is always the easiest for me, I ask for a large table, and in 20 cruises, only changed tables once. I tend to build a group of friends at dinner. If we don't have much in common, I ask questions about their day on the cruise, and conversation flows. I have said many times on this board, that no matter how big the ship is, I tend to see the same 20 or so people who have a similar schedule to me, like to do the same things and I just smile and say hello. I also tend to frequent the same areas, such as the Champagne bar before and after dinner, the casino later on, and a quiet spot for sunbathing. It's easy for others to find me also. Enjoy your cruise, the Med is in my top 5 cruises !!
