Let's meet up with other 45+ single or solo travellers who like to cruise on a budget!  I'll be posting some cruises as Meetup events; many of them will be last minute budget-priced cruises. Others will be well in advance cruises where I will keep an eye out on the prices. If I choose to take it, I will purchase it when I think the price is good. People wanting to join me will purchase their own. I will periodically post the updated price of the cruise (fares change often) but it is up to the member to check the price at the time of their interest. 

On those cruises scheduled as a Meetup 'event' (and that I am going on), I will be organizing some onboard activities that will be in addition to those already scheduled on the cruise ship. AND, I will be finding excursions that are much more reasonable in price than those offered on many cruise ships.

Examples of activities I might organize are: cabin crawls, poker runs, meet & greets, slot pulls, hometown gift exchanges, wine parties, and group dinners. These types of activities are best organized on a cruise that has many sea days in its itinerary, such as Trans Atlantic cruises.

Arrangements can be made to match single/solo cruisers up with a cabinmate.  If you choose to cruise solo, look for little or NO SINGLE SUPPLEMENT cruises.  Check the DISCUSSIONS board for examples of prices for these so you have a good idea. Members also use the DISCUSSIONS board for posting their interest in finding a cabinmate.

Regarding the cruise 'events' that I schedule but am NOT taking, I would schedule them as a meetup 'event' because they are an excellent deal and I would be asking if there is any interest out there.  Maybe some of the members who have expressed an interest (by RSVPing) will get together and go on it.

I have been on 50+cruises and know my way around "cruising on a budget".  (I do not sell cruises and am not associated with any travel agencies; this is just a pastime of mine.) I will be focussing on Hosted Singles Group cruises which typically cost more; come to one of the Meetups and I will tell you about how you can get the best bang for your buck on one of these.
I will hold "Let's Talk Cruising" or "Meet and Greets" Meetups in various areas of the GTA where we will discuss current cruise events and general tips and tricks that I've learned over the years. We will have discussions about how cruising is a great socializing environment for single/solo persons. Some of these meetups might also include meeting up with fellow members with the purpose of getting to know a potential cabinmate.

Once again, I encourage members to check out the DISCUSSIONS board often (located on the menu line of this Group) for examples of good cruise deals and great tricks and tips. There will also be posts there regarding updates to a cruise the group is showing Interest in or is taking. 
NOTE: This group is aimed at single travelers but is not strictly for singles AND it is intended for people in the 45+ age range.
