I cruise solo most of the time and love it! I usually request to sit at a large table and late sitting. You'll find your way, just go for it. Happy cruising

Thanks Cruisehappy! I just changed my dining from "dine when you want" to the late seating with a large table (and will request other solo's/small parties once I get on board.) After all the great help and advice, I'm now much more relaxed about the dining part of my trip. It sounds like you've had some great experiences as well!! Thanks for your input, you've just reconfirmed that I made the best decision!
Hope your next cruise is wonderful and maybe we'll be at the same table one day!

I am another sometimes solo cruiser, and have chosen the late seating with a large table, you won't even have to mention you'd like other solo cruisers, they do a great job of matching folks up. My last cruise was with my mother, and they sat us with two other mothers and their dughters, amazing ! The luxury of sailing solo as Penny stated is great and sounds like something you deserve after taking care of everyone else....Happy Sailing !

Hi bunnydickson.

I went on a solo cruise back in 2007 and had a fixed seating (earlier seating instead of the second seating). This was on Royal Caribbean's "Majesty of the Sea." While I did sit at a table for either 6 or 8, there was only another father / son type couple, for lack of a better term, that I sat with for the entire duration of my cruise.

I'm going on another solo cruise in about 3 weeks, and again am taking the earlier fixed seating. I'll see what happens with this cruise, but I enjoyed the two people I sat with on my last cruise, and even ran into them that first full day on the cruise up on the pool deck.

Cruising solo was a great experience for me, and will probably continue to do so, since my family's schedule conflict so much it makes it difficult to take a family vacation.
