I traveled alone this cruise and was a bit concerned about that. However, it turned out to be no problem, friends were everywhere. This was the most international and age diverse cruise I have ever been on, by far. I absolutely felt like I was part of a little UN.
Acommodation -- Since I was alone, and it costs about double to book alone, I tried an inside cabin. The cabin was nice for what it was, but I won't do it again. It is so like living in a box. I had a little mix-up early on with the card key -- put it into the electricity slot, got ready to go out and pulled it out, decided I needed the bathroom and laid it on the desk. While in the bathroom, you guessed it, the cabin went pitch dark (one of the reasons not to be inside.) I managed not to kill myself working out this problem, but remember, I was alone and there is a step into the bathroom. Size and storage space in the cabin are fine, and I love the new TV system.
Food service -- Fantastic this time. I was at a table for 6 by the window. Only 4 of us ever showed up. My table mates were wonderful, some of them may be friends for life. In addition, the wait staff was superb including the head waiter and his assistant, all of them really. We had a great time at every meal. The Horizon Court never seemed crowded as it has been on other cruises I have been on. I also used the International Cafe' and Alfredo's and enjoyed both of those experiences. Being alone, I did not do any specialty dining.
