When I last looked at Royal Caribbean for single cruising there was a 225% supplement and even the 2nd flight had to be paid for!! It was actually cheaper to take a friend and not charge them anything to come along!

It is all based on supply/demand. There is no set figure but usually the mark up is 150-175%. You will just have to shop around and look for the bargain. The Celebrity Mercury is doing a 7n Alaska cruise on 6 July for only £833 for a single person which I think is astoundin.

The single supplement does vary from cruise line and even from each cruise. Queen Elizabeth 2 and Fred Olsen offer single cabins so the prices are usually better than if you paid a single supplement on other cruise lines. P.S. just a note that the Celebrity Cruise mentioned above appears to be cruise only.

Mr Smith - of course it is cruise only for that price!!! Actually further investigation gives you a single cabin with flts on the 08Jun for a mere £1575.75. Bargain! If we know what Mr Atkins wanted we could advise...

Why not look at P and O cruises. In the supplement section under the cost, there is a percentage on how much single suppelment is. We are flying to Mexico then cruising the Panama. Two of us sharing are paying £1344. Mom is paying £1900 for the privilage of a single cabin. She is happy with this price, as alot of cruise companys want at least double the cost.

P+O offer several cruises with single supplements of 50% or less. I have just booked two for late Novemver 2008 where the supplement is 30% and 35% respectively - both are cruise only from southampton.

Put Me Through To Your Manager!Isn’t taking a holiday supposed to be a relaxing and enjoyable experience? – well you certainly would not think that if you knew some of the complaints that people actually make. Have we lost our sense of humour and our common sense? Are we so much into the ” If there’s blame then there’s a claim culture “?As a cruise consultant I speak to lots of people who for the most part enjoyed their cruise and can’t wait to book ...
