Cruises are the best type of holiday for singles. You don't say when you want to go or for how long. At this time of year the Caribbean would be the best if you dont mind the long flight out and back. You can get a cruise for a week, 10 or 11 nights or 14. If you want to wait until later next year, there are loads of mediterranean cruises that dont involve much flying. Have a look at the descriptions on this site of the different cruise lines and pick one that most suits what appeals to you eg would you prefer something more casual with no formal evenings or would you like some glitz and glamour? Also some cruise lines have passengers of all nationalities with many nationalities on board and some appeal more to the UK or US market. Size of ship is another consideration as they range from smaller boutique style ships to enormous resort ships - there are advantages and disadvantages to both.Good luck in finding a cruise that will suit you. The Berlitz guide to cruising might help you decide what to go for I'm sure you will enjoy it whatever you choose. Cruising is a fantastic experienc.

Well, I am just back from my 3rd stay on the Thomson Spirit, and yet again, it was a wonderful experience.It has been called the friendliest ship at sea and I certainly could not argue with that, you feel like one of the family.As Thomson continue to modernize their fleet, with the TUI Discovery 1 & 2, and the Explorer next year, the decision has been made to let both the Spirit and the Majesty go.What the ship may lack in modern technology, it more than makes up for in other ways.The foo...
