Traveling Companions

Do you usually  travel solo, with your spouse/friend, with your family or with others/group? 

For the most part my husband & travel with my sister and her husband.  We are all going to France this month.  Sometimes if we get a good deal we will travel with a group as we are doing in October.  Other times we travel just the two of us as we will be doing next year.  It all depends.  Who do you usually travel with when you cruise?

Usually it is just my wife and I. Although we did have a family cruise to Bermuda in 2013 with my sisters and my sons. When it is just the two of us we tend to meet more people as the dining and shore excursions tend to be more open.

I would like to travel someday with the grand kids, but scheduling will be a problem until they get older.

On the plus side, we have met great folks on the cruise that we sometime meet up at a place like Vegas for a few days to get together.

Being single I tend to mostly travel with a friend or two. I have done a Solo cruise and it was not bad. Lots of singles on the 3 and 4 night cruises, Carnival tried to set all the single occupancy cabins at the same MDR tables so we were not stuck with families. I have also gone as part of a group or 30 cabins booked to raise $ for a charity and of course the family cruise with Dad, one brother and his family.

I mostly travel with my husband, and sometimes we travel with friends. I have also cruised with my BFF travel buddy (without hubby).

It is nice to see that some lines are adding single cabins to their staterooms. I hope that this trend continues.
