The rise of the solo traveller is making waves in the cruise world. Yet with singles cruise holidays offering the potential to meet a special someone out on the open water, their growing popularity is hardly surprising.
Cruise lines today can offer plenty to those travelling solo. Events and activities both onboard and onshore are certain to keep you busy, as well as prove a fantastic way to meet new people. Just as a taster, you can expect dance classes, cooking sessions, event nights and special meals, as well as specialised shore excursions.
Why choose a singles cruise?
Seeing the world’s most exotic locales your own way in your own time is a special kind of freedom. Solo cruises are an opportunity to broaden your horizons both in the destinations you choose and the people you meet along the way. You’ll often find that there are single cabin supplements and other discounts and deals available.
All walks of life choose to cruise solo. Alongside the freedom it gives you during sea days, options like city tours, cycling routes and wine tasting are among the shore excursions you can enjoy as a group. It’s a great way to mingle and enjoy the bars and restaurants onboard your ship, as well as the gym. What’s more, the range of destinations to cruise to has never been more rich in variety, from the sunny Caribbean to the furthest polar communities imaginable.
Singles cruise lines and ships
Single fares, single cabins and specialised meet and greet events are usually what you can expect when cruising solo. The top names at sea have come together in making unforgettable experiences sure to wow anyone taking a solo cruise in the near future.
Marella Cruises is a great example. While the cruise line specialises in voyages that adapt to how you want to travel, such as All Inclusive options or Cruise & Stay packages, modern ships like Marella Discovery are playgrounds at sea bursting with gadgets and entertainment.
