First time cruise recommend short cruise with USA departure to see if you like cruises in general. To Caribbean or Mexico for green and tropical. Use Cruise Critic.com website for research on different lines and ships to see where you would be most happy.

Robinw- All river cruise ships are fairly small and casual, unlike ocean cruises. Check out river cruises available via Grand Circle and Vantage travel. Check out CruiseCritic website for info and reviews on cruises. My Med. cruises were on Windstar and Oceania

I will be traveling alone too. I am interested in how you found out about small boats for your cruises. I want to go down several european/eastern european rivers but not in a big boat.

Any information is appreciated.

thanks,

Robinkw

I've been on several Caribbean cruises but my bucket list cruises were in the Mediterranean on small ships. Athens to Istanbul through the Greek Isles,  Venice and small ports down the Adriatic, Venice to Istanbul different Adriatic ports, Greek Islands and Turkish ports. I travel alone and small ship cruises are  comfortable, casual and the other passengers are more friendly and sociable than on large ships.

I always wanted to go to Alaska.  I was finally able to go on a cruise last May to see the glaciers.  That was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen!  If you get the chance, you should go!  IMG_5045.jpgGetting close to glacierIMG_5060.jpgglacierIMG_5060.jpgsorry duplicateIMG_5132.jpgbeautiful scenery from deck of shipIMG_5167.jpgsign from top of mountain in SkagwayIMG_5243.jpgKetchikanIMG_5291.jpgBald Eagle sitting on post in front of shipIMG_4967.jpgbeautiful waterfall before glacierIMG_5060.jpgglacier calving
