Re: First time on a Solo Vacation

I was nervous the first time I went on an Olivia Cruise.  I didn't know what to expect.  Rest assured, it is going to be wonderful!  We just wanted to meet someone else we hit it off with.  We got more than that.  we made life long friends.  We got married 8/23/14 and two couples that we meet on an Olivia cruise came to our wedding.  We live in Michigan and one couple came all the way from California and the other from England!  The are actually some of our closest friends.  So I'm sure you'll make friends.

Sometimes we see all the special things the solos get to do and we're actually jealous.  LOL  I so sure you'll have a great time.

First time cruiser, first Olivia vacation, first serious vacation without a partner.  I do have a friend also going, so that will ease the awkwardness some, but am still nervous!  Hoping this experience will give me the courage to do it again even with knowing anyone! From NY originally...

Not a solo, but am from Connecticut.   I have met many solos who are having a great time on the cruises I've been on.  They're so busy that they just wanted a break which is how we met them.  They have excursions, at sea stuff and special tables in the dining hall.  Seems like a great way to make a lot of new friends.

Hi Sunshine!

 Don't worry too much about traveling by yourself on an Olivia cruise! You won't be alone for long! Usually, a few hundred Solos are on every cruise! And Olivia has Solo's Coordinators whose sole purpose is to make sure YOU meet new friends, enjoy as many activities as you want, have lots of fun, go on great excursions, and, basically, have the time of your life! You can participate in the activities as much, or as little, as you want! Olivia always has lots of things planned for each and every day, but if you just want to hang by the pool, read a book, or just take in all the beauty, you can! Yes, there are lots of couples and, yes, there are lots of friends who travel together but don't worry about that. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming! One of the best things about an Olivia vacation is that you can/will make LOTS of friends for life, both couples and solos! I've made friends from all over the world by traveling with Olivia! So, come join us and be prepared for one of the best adventures of your life!

Malinda

First time on a Solo Vacation

Any one going Solo from Ct.  I am not sure if I want to try it alone, and if there are many others that go Solo.  Seems the reviews and topics I have found most are couples or groups of friends.
