Your best bet is to offer to share a cabin with similar age etc. i did that two years ago and it turned out wel.

I cruise with P&O, and can get reasonable single supplements of between 25 and 50 percent. However, as P&O only have a limited number of single occupancy cabins, it pays to book as early as possible, and these low supplements are not usually available for the spring/summer months. Generally this means cruising in October/November/December. I hope this is of some help.

I thought that Saga accomodated the single traveller - and I have heard that one line [Cunard??] offer cabin shares for single passengers - which sounds ghastly to me but may be a way of keeping costs down.

Fred Olsen offer single cabins of varying grades as well as cabin share.

Watch teletex, you can often sometimes get cruises with no single supplement. I managed 4 last year, this year 1 cruise with only £100 single supplement and in September I am off again without paying a single supplement to the Greek Islands with Monarch Classic Cruises which can be booked through a London Agent Jodie Stevens on 0845 330 0387. I have made so many friends cruising alone, it holds no horrors for me, in fact I actually prefer it. Good luc.

Anyone for Tea?

By Jo Cunningham

MSC Cruises are taking British cruisers seriously and have announced that British passengers will be able to vote on the brand of kettle that is being placed in all cabins on board the MSC Magnifica.Having a kettle in your cabin has always been important to British cruisers. We are people that enjoy a cup of tea in the morning and do not like having to call (or pay) for room service to bring it. I am frequently being asked if there is a kettle in the cabin and it is only really the British C...

Port Or Starboard? Whats t...

By Gina Rowan

I wish I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question. I could have sailed around the world in Luxury! Aah yes! but would I choose Port or Starboard for my cabin? Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...

My NON cruise holiday this Easter.

By Haydn Jones

Haydn Jones's blog

I’ve just come back from a family Easter holiday to Spain, surprisingly not on a cruise this time. My children are of the age where we have to go away during school holidays. We decided on Benalmadena, Spain as we have been before , its not too far, and the boys love it there. The weather was absolutely glorious, we were so lucky this time of year to have 10 days of boiling sunshine. Benalmdena is a town on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, known for its beaches and the modern Pue...
