    Has anyone ever travelled alone to an Atlantis cruise? If so, how did it go?

    Also, does anyone know if a cruise is sold out, is there anyway to get on a waiting list in case an opening occurs from someone who doesn't want to go anymore?

    Lastly, who is going on any upcoming trips?

    Ok, I lied, one last thing... to the poster who is undoubtably going to post his routine you cruise, ya lose crap

    So you will, quite literally, be cruising. icon_lol.gif

    Not so sure about the losing part. I've never been enticed by the idea of being stuck on a boat with 2,000 of your not-so-closest friends. I would imagine the company has a waiting list, though! You should call 'em up!

    I go alone all the time. I meet people on board. Not that hard. I am doing the Halloween cruise in October and the Auckland/Sydney cruise in Feb

    ..Is that better??icon_eek.gif


    I only plan on leaving my cabin for church services. Or perhaps for the ice cream social. But this being a gay cruise it will be fair trade, organic, non fat frozen yogurt.

    Yes, you can. I worked for two cruise line a couple of years ago, but its the same process for even Atlantis cruise. You can definitely call the cruise line who is being chartered for Atlantis and see if you can get the name of the ship supervisor (this is key) and be asked to be placed in a waiting list. They always have it in view of last minute cancelations, and unfortunately tragic events that people do not show up, etc. The main aim of the ship supervisor and his/her job depends on it is always to have a ship sail full, if he/she does not the company loses money. Even if it looks like a no on the waiting list, you can take this alternative that has also worked, but be prepared to have plan B if it does not. Not sure, which port of call you are looking to board for the Atlantis Cruise, but you can also travel to the main port of embarkation and the day of the cruise show up although it might be a NO go at all. The ship supervisor will be on hand managing all aspects of embarkation, also many times folks for get to travel with the proper documentation, passport etc. and they are denied boarding for another reason or other...so now she has to scramble to fill the cabin. So if they you are right there in port of embarkation they will sell you the cabin, sometimes at a discounted price to get it filled....but sometimes this might not happen so be prepared to have another plan in that location if you can not get on board. Just giving you some tips from the 5 years I worked for two cruise lines.

    You can contact Atlantis directly or check their web site for availability and pricing. They usually have openings, especially for cruises a few months out, but your choice of price category gets smaller as the cruise date nears. I am going on the Atlantis Indepedence Caribbean Cruise with a couple of friends in Feb 2013.

    I think you should go for it! Just stay positive and have fun. It could be a great experience, and you could make new friends!

    I've been on 3 Atlantis cruises alone using the roomate option. 2 were great. The third, my roomate was a jerk and snored like a train. I had a good time on all the cruises. Atlantis makes sure of that.

    Check the Atlantisevents website to see if the cruise you want is sold out. The pricing tab indicates what is available. Call Atlantis events to get on their waiting list, if the cabin type you want is not available. Since Alantis books the entire cruise, they are the only ones that control the list and can provide you a room (unless you make a deal with someone who has already booked a cabin).

    Joint the Atlantis events cruise website and you might be able to post a message that you are looking for a spot on a particular cruise. People have to cancel at the last minute (or earlier) and will want roomates.

    If you enjoy being with a bunch of gay people for a week and enjoy partying, you will enjoy these cruises. But you have to go with the attitude that you will need to make your own friends, plan your own agenda, and just enjoy being there on a cruise. The parties are not a requirement, but an attitude that you will make your own fun and experience is. I really enjoy cruising, so just being on the ship, enjoying the cruise and relaxing ( with some partying too) makes for a good time for me.

    BTW, the idea of YCYL is bullshit. My emperical evidence is that you cruise you win - both at the gym and cruising on the ocean!

    I'm looking for a roommate for 2012 Halloween. A lot of fellow San Diegans are going but everyone is paired up. Thanks for the advice, guys, and let me know if anyone is interested!

    My friend went on an Atlantis cruise alone and had a great time.

    I think that on some of these, if you are traveling alone, they might assign you a roommate. So if you don't want that, you might consider purchasing two tickets for an inside room (the least expensive) and that way you will not have to share a room.
