I notice you are saying All Cruises. As a person who has cruised as a single every time so far, my advice is to shop around, don't just go for a single cabin, it is quite often the case that, single occupany in a twin cabin, depending on the cruise and the time of year can be cheaper than a single cabin. Your best bet is to contact one of the cruise agencies, why not try the freephone number in the header, and ask their advice, but have some idea of where you want to go and the time of year, it will help.

Which cruise company, which ship and which cruise?? Some ships have single cabins, others you have to reserve a double cabin for single occupancy.

How long is a piece of string? When do you want to go? Where do you want to go? Who do you want to sail with? Are you bothered about any of these questions? You could pay £300+ a day for a single cabin on the QE 2 at the moment, OR, if you are not so fussy, there are a number of cabins available for single occupancy being sold for between £75 and £100 currently for cruises during the next few months across a range of cruise lines and destinations! A call to Fred Olsen could be especially productive at the moment. Just don't forget that fuel surcharge! Happy cruising.

La Spezia ? where.

By Nicola Milligan

Mediterranean cruises are calling into several ports depending on the size of the cruise ship. So Livorno is commonly know as the port to visit Florence and Pisa. This is a big industrial port so if you have been to both of those cities before not a lot for you to do.We are now finding some ships are calling into La Spezia as an alternative. However the journey can take over two hours each way, so what else is there to do in this area of Italy.I have been recommended by a regular customer a m...

I visited Cuba recently and had an amazing experience. The people, the way of life and culture. I learned a lot of it’s history, more than just what I would have learned at school. It was very interesting to see at first hand what life is like there.Being on an escorted tour I was able to see the real Cuba. Not just a few nights in Havana and then spending the rest of our time on a beach. I visited Cuba in-land, I saw the farms, the tobacco and coffee plants and just how the real people...
