Dont go on HAL if you want to meet others your age (men or women). This is not meant to say HAL is not a bad line. HAL is great. Very service oriented and elegant. Just an older crowd. After 11 pm the ship is almost deserted. I think your going with a group. Take a Halloween cruise if your schedule permits. :)

LexitKat62, generally speaking fireofficer5 is correct, but not for this sailing. I just completed my first singles cruise on the Carnival Valor with the same agency. They did a very good job. We had 200 singles in our group and everyone that I met was great. This agency does a great job for singles. I will book with them again. I am looking at the Sept. 29 cruise, due to price and the Dec. 1 cruise due to the ship.

RELAX, You will have a good time on this cruise.

ce2000 I was on the Valor too. Had a great time with the group as well. I'm not saying anything bad about HAL. I had my daughter with me in oct. 2004. Its the age range of the group that you are going with. I think L.K. 62 is younger than most on that singles group.

mctrekkie, I'm glad that you checked in here. I have not yet booked the Dec. 1 Zuiderdam cruise, but I will later. I am booked on the Sept. 29 Glory cruise, I have been to all of ports that the Glory will visit, but I just couldn't pass this up, the price is just to good.

Looking forward to meeting you and all of the others on Dec. 1.

LK62, I'm living in Dallas right now; moved there from Seattle last winter.

 

Terry, glad you're joining us. Sounds like the group will be large, and though it's my first cruise with this agency, I hear they do a great job for their single/solo cruises. Looking forward to it!

I'm on the Dec 1 '07 Zuiderdam singles cruise too. I went on this ship last year to the same ports, and the passengers seemed to be 40+. However, there were some younger families. That wasn't a singles cruise, although this is my second singles cruise with this agency.

 

I'm from Massachusetts, and will be flying down to FL the day before the cruise.

Rett,

 

Azamara is a brand new line (part of Celebrity). They just started sailing recently, so I'm guessing there aren't many reviews out there quite yet. From what I've read about them (mostly press releases) Azamara is Celebrity's version of a smaller ship luxury line.

 

I've sailed Celebrity once, and was very happy with the experience. The service was superior, the ship lovely, the food and beverage very good, and the staterooms and public areas well maintained. Since the Azamara ships are brand new, I'd think your parents would have a great cruise.

 

Cheers,

Peggy
