Unfortunately, often it’s assumed that cruises are just for couples and families, and not for single people.
Fortunately, this isn’t the case.
Many ships have single cabins specifically for singles and lone travellers.
Others offer reduced single supplements.
And as older ships are upgraded, single cabins are being added into these too.
On our first cruise, it was interesting to see events laid on by the ship’s entertainment team specifically for singles and lone travellers.
There were opportunities to meet up with fellow single travellers.
If a single cabin isn’t available on your chosen cruise, another possibility is to share a twin cabin with a friend.
After all, with all the entertainment on the ship, and with so many places to visit, you’re unlikely to be spending a great deal of time in your cabin.
Popular cruise lines which do offer singles’ cabins include:
- Fred Olsen
It was great to see specific prices for single cabins clearly displayed on Fred Olsen’s website.
So if you’re single and thinking about a cruise, it’s well worth checking out the prices and availability rather than missing out on the holiday of a lifetime.
From what we observed, a cruise is the perfect place to meet new friends… whatever age you are.
What about cruising with a disability?
