Q: I'm Ready To Try A Senior Singles Cruise PDF Print E-mail

I’m newly alone, and need to move on with my single life. Friends and family tell me the best way to start is sign on for a singles cruise. I’m a 60ish retired office manager and enjoy dancing. What’s your advice? RJDiC, Boca Raton FL

A: Senior singles cruises offer new experiences and chances to meet people your age. They feature social dances nightly and dance classes during the day. We suggest you book a cruise that sails after Labor Day, because they’re better bargains, and tend to attract retiree travelers. Best fare prices are usually based on two in a cabin, so you may want to take a friend or family member. If you prefer to travel alone, be prepared to pay extra, or request to share a cabin with another passenger. For more info and booking, contact your hometown travel agent or go online for sites that promote single senior cruises.
