HOW I AGREE WITH gRANT ABOUT SOLO TRAVELLERS. It is infuriating that as a Solo traveller I am told to phone up for a quote instead of being given a price on line. There must be enough of us to warrant giving us this facility. Joan Manchester.

I definately agree with you on this as I love to cruise and "going solo" cruises are few and far between unless you are paying huge supplements.

I agree with you I would love to go another cruise and going solo cruises would be ideal. No huge supplements.

I travelled with my Sister on the last cruise and it would be great to have met more single or independant travellers. Life is so limited to coupledom as it is.!!! I enjoy meeting people and found single people were very limited and not always favoured by couples.

Ohh yes please. Independant travellers can be such fun and have such interesting tales to tell!!! I did Island Star Essence cruise earlier this year and only met other singles through excursions or on the sixth day. I wasa lucky, it was a last minute booking so the single supplement was very reasonable. Bring it on!!!!

I certainly would like to see a section for us poor singletons (or not so poor as we all hope!) - I love cruising and would like to cruise more but the discounts available for single cabin supplements are few and far between - I am sure there is a healthy market out there for cruise operators to offer a reasonably priced supplement that isnt so prohibitive as it seems now. Come on Cruise.co do your best for those who are at the mercy of money grabbing cruiselines!! ps. was fortunate enough to encounter a good reduction in supplement on the Island Star sailing next week for 2 weeks through Cruise Thomas Cook (£250 extra for the two weeks in a twin cabin 9th floor restricted viwe outside) but that offer was only on for 2 weeks and wasnt advertised as such I was just lucky. Wonder how many cruise specialists offer such deals and why dont they publicise the fact? anyhow look forward to other responses.

100% not only as a single traveler but with Family, not everyone wants to share a cabin with there Granny. I for one would travel far more often, cruises are great, but the cost for us singletons, to much I am afraid Richarc.

Yes, as a single cruiser of nearly 20 years who would not wish to share I probably spend more money on board than many couples as I have 3 vices - shopping, alcohol and gambling! Also at nearly 60 I like the comfort of a decent outside cabin midships. As I am nearing retirement I hope to do more than one cruise per year, and have already booked 2009 and 35 days in 2010 with P & O, and have paid 60% for both. How long I will be able to continue with this luxury I don't know. Even when I become a gold member, which will be soon, as far as I know I won't receive any reduction on the fare.

Two nights on Indy..

By Alison Ranaldi

Alison  Ranaldi's blog

Last week I spent two nights on the newly revamped Independence of the Seas.We sailed from Southampton in glorious sunshine to Le Havre and back. This was my third time on board this ever-popular ship and I was keen to see the changes to her after a big refit. We had a balcony cabin on deck 9 which had everything we needed for a comfortable break. I’m not generally a fan of mini-cruises. They offer an excellent way for someone like myself to see the ships but I do not think they are a g...
