Hi Blondie, I am a 55 year old single female and have the same questions. I'm not travelling until next year though, but one of my concerns is eating in the dining room. I hope you get some good answers and wish you good luck and a good cruise.

I suggest that you get to the dining room early and then you'll be seated as others come in. That way people can see that you're alone and can join you if they wish. I too travel single and usually try to do this on my first dining experience that way I've "broken the ice" with fellow passengers and they know I am traveling alone. You'll be surprised what a non issue this is to most people.

I went on the River Beatrice in August alone. It was by far the best vacation I have had. You are so pampered you won't believe it. Never felt alone but had as much alone time as I wanted. It was mostly couples but they always welcomed me at their tables during meals. I have booked another river cruise leaving April 8 from Brussels. I can't wait.

I am also traveling as a single on the "Castles along the Rhine" Oct. 7. That was a good suggestion. Thanks. Any other helpful hints would be appreciated.

Just joined today and am excited about planning my first-ever solo vacation. I've been looking at river cruise brochures for years and I think 2013 will be the year for me to finally do it! Are there certain cruises that are more solo-friendly than others? I'm thinking of the cruise price but also more mix of couples and solos?

I'm an experienced ocean cruiser but always went with other family members.

Thanks fin advance or any advice and tips.

Barbara

Hi, I am single, 50's, and going on the Dec. 1 European Holiday Market cruise. Am really looking forward to going solo, although it will be my first time on one by myself.
