I am sure that you will make a good choice if you select Fred. Olsen. Yes, they have a good number of single cabins but they do sell out very quickly. There are always a large number of repeat passengers on these cruises and many people book far in advance of the departure date. The dress code will be sent to you with your tickets but, as a guide, there are normally two formal nights each week when men wear dinner jackets or dark suits with tie. The other evenings are informal (jacket & tie) or casual (no jacket or tie but no shorts. There are also "theme" nights eg Western, British night (red,white and blue which can cover American, French, Dutch etc too) and tropical. You will soon get into the swing of things. I have cruised many times with Fred. Olsen, sometimes on my own, and can fully recomment them.

I agree totally with 'Miller', Fred Olsen ships cater very well for single travellers. On many cruises I've booked a single cabin and found I've been allocated a twin for sole occupancy. Fred's cruises attract many single passengers of both sexes and you will soon make friends. Try to attend the 'singles' meeting, details will be given in the Shipboard News delivered daily to your cabin. After a few free glasses of the bubbly stuff, passengers chat like old friends. Happy cruising! Regards Jan .
