Cruising is great for single travellers. It offers a safe and secure environment in which to meet people and make friends.
There are lots of organised activities and social events to keep you busy night and day if you wish. Also there are usually quiet places where you can seek tranquillity. Many ships organise singles cocktail parties and will put singles on the same dining tables where requested.
There are no singles only cruises yet but younger and fun seeking cruisers might prefer larger ships and cruise lines like Norwegian Cruise Line, P&O, Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Cruise and Maritime Voyages – however single supplements sometimes are applicable.
Some cruise lines cater better than others for single passengers. Norwegian Epic has 128 studio cabins for solo cruisers. Others set aside a limited number of twin cabins for sole use at a supplement to the normal one person fare. There are also cabin share programmes that will pair you with a traveller of the same sex to share a twin cabin. BOOK EARLY if you want one of these options – they go quickly.
To help you find the right cruise, we have selected the cruise lines that provide single cabins, share programmes, gentlemen hosts and fare supplements below 50% for sole occupancy of a twin cabin. The Singles Search will check these lines for cruises on your dates (not availability) or you can click on the line name to review their cruises.
Most River Cruise Lines have low supplements for sole occupancy of a twin cabin so we would suggest that you visit the River Cruises page and use the Quick Search there to find a suitable cruise.
