    I also like the smaller P&O ships, done most of my cruises on the Aurora including 2 full world cruises. Also sailed twice on the Arcadia.

    I get asked this fairly regularly, because I'm travelling on my own and paying single supplement. It is  normally because they are sympathetic to us singles having to pay extra.

    Age is just a number. I'm an OAP, but I'm usually one of the last out of the bar or the casino. My normal cruise line is P&O.

    P&O have a singles meeting every sea day, usually hosted by somebody from the entertainment team. 
    I've been on 4 cruises 1 a full world cruise since I like you became a widower. I can say I have never felt isolated, although I've always been a fairly independent person you can get involved in the dance classes, quizzes and such things. 
    My advice go for it.

    I've done 2 full world cruises both on the Aurora, the first with my wife in 2004 then again as a single (widower) in 2013. I didn't get bored at all. If you get involved in the activities that that are available on board you soon make friends in various social groups. I enjoyed both of them, doing the 2013 as a single was easier than I thought. I went to the singles meetings, dance classes, quizzes and of course the bar plus dining on a table for 8. This meant I met and socialised with a good spread of fellow cruises, I'm still in contact with a few people from both cruises. All being well I intend doing another full world cruise in 2018.

    Rob,
    I will probably be doing the 2018 world cruise with P&O. I don't know which ship yet but I do like the Aurora. I have been on the Arcadia and enjoyed my cruise on it so I would consider that as well. It depends on itinerary. We sailed to New York on the QM2 and toured round the States then sailed back on QM2. We found Cunard a bit impersonal, although the staff where efficient that's all they are. So l will probably stick to P&O.

    donag got a reaction from RobBar in Gratuities On A Long Cruise   
    Having done 2 complete world cruises with P&O. I was quite happy to pay the set gratuities which was deducted after each sector. Also I tipped people who I thought deserved extra, there was a few of them. I always treat everybody who serves me with the respect they deserve and expect respect from them. In my younger days I did bar & catering jobs so I understand what it is like dealing with whatever the job throws up.
