Singles CruisesA cruise vacation is a great choice for single travelers!
Single travelers should absolutely consider a cruise for their next vacation. As far as singles vacations go, a cruise is a great choice. It provides a fabulous value, and offers a fantastic vacation opportunity. There are not usually cruises that are ONLY for singles; however, there are two great options.
Please select an option to view more information:
OPTION #1: Pre-Arranged Singles Vacation Packages
OPTION #2: Cruise Ships with Staterooms and/or Programs Designed for Singles
Interested in a cruise or resort package designed specifically for singles? The benefit of this is that there will be a large group of singles that booked the same package as you. Not everyone in the ship or resort will be a single, but many will be. Special singles events and activities will be planned throughout the vacation.
The following is included with our Singles Cruises packages:
The following is available at an additional cost on our Singles Cruises:
There are a few cruise ships that offer special accommodations designed with singles in mind. Many cruise lines, even those that don't have ships with accommodations just for singles, have special sales for singles, as well as events and programs during their cruises.Activities for Singles
What is there to do on typical cruises for singles? LOTS! For example, many cruise lines offer "singles nights" in their discos or in various lounges onboard the ships. Such events are a great way to meet fellow singles that are on your cruise. There are lots of pool-side activities, dancing events, cocktail parties, and shows as well. Being a single on a cruise is a great way to meet new people. Because of all the activities and amenities onboard the ship, you're guaranteed to have fun while on your cruise.Single Supplement
Often times, the cruise lines charge a single passenger a single supplement. A single supplement charge is an up-charge added to the cruise fare for you to occupy a double occupancy stateroom alone. Sometimes though, the cruise line will offer special single passenger rates where they do not charge a single supplement, or charge a reduced single supplement fee. Among the cruise lines that sometimes offer waived or reduced single supplements are Holland America Line, Cunard Line, as well as ultra-luxury cruise lines like Seabourn Cruise Line and Silversea Cruises.Single Occupancy Staterooms
There are cruise ships that actually have staterooms made for singles. Among such cruise lines are Norwegian Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean, Costa Cruises, Holland America Line, Cunard Line, and Virgin Voyages. Such accommodations are available on a limited basis, but when available would save you having to pay the single supplement fees (or, at least, will get you a significant reduction on such costs). This is a much better way to find cheap singles cruises!
Norwegian Cruise Line has been a pioneer in single accommodations, with their Studio staterooms. These are 100-square-foot accommodations designed for single passengers, creating a great value for solo cruisers. All guests staying in a Studio stateroom will get special key-card access to the Studio Lounge, an exclusive area of the ship just for such guests. Single travelers do not have a pay a single supplement fee when making a reservation in one of NCL's Studio staterooms!
Studio staterooms are offered on the following NCL ships: (itineraries subject to change)
Royal Caribbean's Quantum-class cruise ships (Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas) have studio accommodations, some which have a private balcony. Solo traveler accomodations are also available on Harmony of the Seas and Brilliance of the Seas.
Since December 2014, Cunard's Queen Elizabeth has eight outside and one inside stateroom for single guests. These single staterooms have an ideal mid-ship location, in close proximity to social areas (like the Empire Casino, Royal Court Theater, and Queens Room), and have single beds with a generous width of over 47". These accommodations are limited, and can be reserved now (if not sold out yet).
Virgin Voyages launched in 2021 with one-of-a-kind adult-only experiences, unique onboard offerings, and an ambiance that is far from status quo, showcasing offbeat entertainment, high-tech environments, and inclusive fares. Their four ships (Brilliant Lady, Resilient Lady, Scarlet Lady, and Valiant Lady) have accomodations for solo travelers in inside and oceanview staterooms.Single Share Programs
Select cruise lines offer special programs for single travelers that are looking to share a room with another single passenger of the same sex. For instance, Holland America Line offers such a program, for select accommodations. If you're interested in participating in this type of program, please contact us for assistance.Gentleman Hosts
There are certain cruise lines (usually the luxury cruise lines, such as Cunard Line) that offer Gentleman Hosts, to enhance the onboard social environment for women that are traveling single on a cruise. These Gentlemen are available as dancing partners, dinner companions, and often times are available to join you while you're on a shore excursion. These men are well-traveled, educated, and have been screened by the cruise line to ensure that you'll have an excellent time while in their company.
