There are cruises out there but usually min 20% extra up to 80% but was told worth checking out this site http://www.gillscruise.com/solo_singles_cruises.
I can't wait to see the answers to your question. I have booked singly for the caribbean cruise on 26 Dec. and it is costing me over £600 for the privaledge. and I truly hope it is worth it cos its more than a holiday its a dream being fulfilled. at my age (73) I know I will never get the opportunity again.
Well done Jean go for it and hopefully you will do other cruises, my mother was at 79. Enjoy.
Jean go for it, I took my mum on her 1st cruise 6 weeks before her 73rd birthday, we had an absolute ball, it was so fun. We didn't have any early nights, lots of early mornings, we met so many lovely people, she had to be practically dragged back to the cabin, she was having too good a time for bed (although not suggesting you need or should become a night owl!) I was not a major contributory factor to her enjoyment that was the cruise; we also met many solos who also had a great time including several ladies of various ages. However, after all this frivolity the notion of her once in a lifetime cruise, disappeared, and we are now considering options for her special 80th Birthday Cruise in 2 years time, at the time of the 1st cruise and continuously since my mum is wheelchair dependant. Apologies to Miller this comment does not address any issue to the question of solo travellers and single occupancy.
Jean I am 75 since losing my wife in 2003 have been on14 cruises on my own I took ten with my late wife we had to have a doctor on hand
Guess what ? not leaving it behind me so you do as I do spend it best of luch you will love your firsat cruise
Because the leisure industry is made for couples. However, if you look around there are cruise ships which have single cabins which are not as cheap (per person) as double cabins booked for single occupancy but are pretty reasonable. Try Fred. Olsen, SAGA, P&O and you may get the odd bargain. As a regular cruiser who sometimes travels alone the main downside is that single cabins tend to be snapped up quickly so it is better to book early on popular cruises.
