Miller - Answered a Question by Williams (31 Jul 08 14:48)

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 .

It was time for my annual week away with great friends. Last year we went to New York, which was a little cold so this year we went to warmer climates.We stayed at Riu Cancun in Mexico which was a perfect location to the bustling nightlife.We boarded our flight in Manchester the day after and inch and a half of snow fell, so yes there was a two hour delay but that did not bother us. 10 hours later we had swapped the minus 2 degrees to a more relaxing 28 degrees.The hotel was fantastic, all i...
