Well I don't have any stories yet.. I've been on 3 cruises but all of them were with family or friends. I'm about to go on my first "solo" cruise very soon, though. RC Mariner of the Seas, October 25th. I wanted to go with my friends, but they were all either working or they're prone to motion sickness. Anyway, I'm determined to have a great time... I can't wait!
