Most big modern ship have a full range of options from relaxing on deck - to disco's etc. If you generally want more formal experience (dressing up) try Cunard or Celebrity, for more 'party' (informal) feel (with lots of families) try RCI or NCL. If you want more sedate, on smaller ships, try Fred Olsen.

Hi, there are no age limits on any of the cruises and i am led to believe that most cruises cater for all ages. I am 28 and travelled on the QM2 Southampton to New York in Nov last year. My husband and i met a really great lady from Cardiff who was in her 30's and was travelling alone. Alot of cruise ships are about socializing (especailly at meal times) and i know cunard tend to sit the single passengers next to one another at meal times were possible. The lady met lots of people on board and even got to have a boogie! The nightclub on board the ship was great for everyone and the ''pub'' was also great for socialising. Cunard also have ''single travellers'' meet ups to ensure that lone travellers get the opportunity to participate with activities if you are not brave enough to stand at the bar alone (which i don't think i would be). I can only go off the views of the lady we met and we did end spending alot of time with her, but she certainly had a great time! I hope if you decide to book, you have a great time!

By Richard Smith

Watch this video on YouTube.I was shocked earlier this week to read a story of the new Seabourn Encore ship colliding with another ship.It turns out that the collision was minor and thankfully no-one was hurt but what left me wondering was how something like this could happen in the first place.The new ship was docked in Timaru, New Zealand at the time and was actually delayed in departure due to the strong winds there. The ship ended up breaking it’s moorings due to the strong winds an...

Brilliant News For Solo Travellers!

By Michelle Fennelly

Michelle Fennelly's blog

As a single traveller the majority of cruise liners will charge at least 100% supplement on a twin berth cabin for sole occupancy; this is actually double the price which in my view it is just ridiculous. It isnt fair and its not acceptable and its about time most cruise liners understood that a lot of their guests do travel alone.Well my good news is that Fred Olsen are doing special offers for solo travellers, eventually a cruise liner that has listened to their guests.The deal Fred Olsen a...
