Cruise vacations can be a great experience with your bestie, a close group of girlfriends or even if you go solo. It’s time to just to get away from it all —responsibilities and worries—and focus on you.
It’s important to know which kind of cruise vacation best suits your needs right now (keeping in mind that these needs might change from time to time). When you do your research for deals, make sure you’re as diligent when figuring out which cruise line and what type of cruise suits you for this moment of your life. A good deal won’t feel like a good deal if you’re miserable the whole trip!
Pros and Cons of Cruising Solo
Have you ever had a day to yourself to do whatever you wanted, even if that whatever is absolutely nothing? It can feel pretty priceless when those days are far and few between.
Now imagine an entire cruise vacation being that way.
You have a week, two weeks, a month, to plan—or not plan—exactly what you want to do and not worry about entertaining anyone else. It can be freeing and liberating, and quite honestly, an incredible way to recharge your batteries. You can go back to the real world with a fresh pair of eyes with an intention to take on anything that comes your way.
Just because you get to plan your day for yourself doesn’t mean you might not want some company. On a cruise ship, you are usually not void of people being all around you! However, if you’re one of those women who tend to thrive off of other people, doing cruise sans friends may not be for you.
However, a singles cruise might be just perfect.
Over the years, cruises for single men and women have become quite popular. Since cruises tend to have themes—family, romantic, Disney—having cruises that are specifically for those without a significant other can be a dream come true.
On a singles cruise, you’d be surrounded by other singles looking to mingle and have fun. You might join in some fun games and activities and get to be friends with other single gals. It doesn’t have to be about meeting a mate; girlfriends are just as important. After all, on a cruise you’d be able to meet people you would’ve never have even laid eyes on otherwise.
