Im not sure if youre interested in meeting other single travellers when youre away but the cruise news listed the time and location for the single traveller daily meet ups. They were organised by the social hosts and there was usually a group of about 15 or 20 having drinks together in the evening.

Oh yeah Ill definitely go to the first one or two. I suppose that my situation is a bit different as Im not actually single, just left my poor husband at home..
So I usually go and see if I gel with anyone. One year I made great friends with an Amazing 89 year old called Hazel, and we did everything together, another I met a lad my age who lived 10 mins away from me at home, we got on really well and did all the activities together. My third solo cruise I didnt gel with anyone, and just enjoyed my book/own company. Im pretty ok for a week as people chat to you anyway.

On Ex2 they have a silent disco twice a week and movie nights on deck, we liked those too. There was lower key entertainment and quizzes in the pub but we didnt get time to go there. Wed usually just pop in to grab a drink to take up to the balcony after the show.
Thanks so much. Not brave enough for a silent disco but do love the idea of a film on the deck at night xx

You could grab a pair of headphones and sit and people watch. Its definitely worth a watch if they do it on Discovery. A few people we got chatting to said they liked that Ex2 was adults only but preferred the layout of the Discovery ships esp. the atrium area.

I've just had a look at the cruise news and they're not listed as singles meet ups, they're solo meet ups.

The movie nights were lovely - plenty of seating scattered on deck, crew handed out blankets, waiters served drinks to your seat throughout the film and the snack bar stayed open late and served fish and chips in baskets. We watched Mary Poppins Returns, I remember feeling very happy that night
