Ageee with Aveline......cruises can be what you want them to be. You can socialise or not, no one forces you to join in.
I like the smaller ships, and as I hate flying I love the fact that you can sail to and from a British port.
I have had some wonderful cruises, the most spectacular so far being crusing down the Amazon.
I had to cancel a trip to Iceland in 2020 due to covid and obviously I wouldnt consider one yet but I am looking forward to travelling again,......I fancy Canada next, and at some point hope to circumnavigate South America.
I can't afford my own boat so crusing is the next best thing, ?
