Guys, I need a vacation. SOOOOOOOOO BAAAAAADDDD. I haven't had one in 4 years. I work crazy hours, and am basically beyond exhausted at the moment.

However, due to a number of reasons (time, funds, life) I am unable to find a vacation buddy to go anywhere with me.

Has anyone solo vacationed anywhere? I want me time, but I'm up for meeting new people too. I'm 24 and would like people around the same age, but I'm not picky at all. Just get me somewhere with a beach and a drink.

I'm thinking a cruise because it's self-contained and everyone's stuck there together, but I've never been on one and don't know what to expect.

HELP ME NOT FAIL AT THIS.

Any tips and tricks are greatly appreciated.
