Re: Going Solo?

Hi Jill and every one, I am not a solo, have a loverly partner joining me on this cruise but I can tell you solos have a great time! our single friends who have traveled with us spend a lot of time apologizing  why they never have time to see us, they are so busy with the solo group !

Jill you are proberbly not the only English girl on board, lots of travelers are not on the connect group or the f/b group, you will meet them on board, identify them by their accents!  I confuse every one I have lived in Australia for 40yrs but still have a Welsh/ Manchester/  accent . The English think I am aussie and the Americans think I am English, good to keep them guessing !

No worries!  We were all anxious at the "first time solo adventure."  See you at the Solo's meeting!

Love your accent.  My best friend is a Kiwi and I understand about 60%.  I love it!

Hi everyone

Yes, I took the plunge and joined up earlier this year. I understand that I am the only English girl on board, so I just hope everyone can understand my Liverpool accent!

Starting to get a bit nervous as you would expect, but I'm very much looking forward to the experience.  

See you all in Rome!

Jill, I can't share any Olivia solo experiences with you as I have none but I can share the solo "jitters" since I am also a first timer. For me, it feels a like the 1st day at a new school, terrifyingly exciting!  How often do you get to have that experience?  When's the last time you had a "first time". Hope to see you there and look forward to meeting the rest of you as well!

Hi Jill:

 

I have traveled solo with Olivia for over 20 trips.  I was terrified my first cruise.  I didn't know a soul on the cruise and thought I must have lost my mind for even considering such an adventure.  Fear was short lived.  Solo group was wonderful and I still correspond with friends I met on that first cruise.  I can almost guarantee you will enjoy it - all you need is to pack is a smile.  See you next month!

Jill,

Traveling solo with Olivia is a wonderful experience.  8 years ago my sister and her partner convinced me to take my first Olivia cruise and I can honestly say even traveling solo, it was one of the best things I ever did.  Olivia plans activities, social gatherings, even dinner if you choose for solo travelers. Olivia makes it easy to travel alone and yet never feel alone.  I continue to stay in touch with friends I made on that first cruise to Alaska and look forward to meeting new friends on this cruise.  Come join the fun you will enjoy it.

Going Solo?

Hi there,

I'm seriously considering signing up for my first Olivia cruise. Europe is my home turf, so it may be a way of easing my way in gently?! I would be travelling solo, and wondered if anyone would be prepared to share their solo experiences to help me make that decision.

All advice and feedback gratefully received.

Many thanks, Jill
