I was on the Dubai and the Emirates itinerary on Brilliance of the Seas from 28 November until 5 December 2011. This was my second solo trip, following a Transatlantic crossing on QM2 in May. I didn't feel as well looked after on Brilliance as I did on QM2. A get-together for solo travellers was listed in Daily Compass on the first day. However it was at 5.30 pm up by the Sky Bar. I went up there, and of course there were hundreds of people milling around as it was Sailaway time. I couldn't identify anyone who might be organising the get-together, or anyone who looked as though they were on their own. There were no other get-togethers listed during the trip, and I only met 2 other people on their own. I think that the timing and location of this event were poor.:doubledown: I contrasted this to the get-together on QM2, where I met a lot of people who I met up with again during the voyage.
