I'm not sure how many replies you are going to get on this one because I think that you believe that you are communicating with the agents, unfortunately , or maybe fortunately, you are connected to "Those what Cruise". So try this for size...... I am sure that if you pick any of the cruises with four stars and possibly three you will find that they all have "Single and unattached" sections on their ships. You will be invited to go along to join a group of others who are travelling on their own and you can join them and find company with whom you can socialise, go ashore and generally enjoy their company without any obligation to do everything they do. These happen on every cruise so if you want company they are ideal. If I'm wrong people on this site will tell you that I am or they will agree with me.-----Have a go. Ida .

Hi, I'm fairly sure that there are no singles only cruises organised by any cruise line. However cruise lines are quite happy to take singles, either in dedicated singles cabins, as sole occupants of twin cabins, or on some as a shared occupancy. I personally have cruised with P&O, on a single occupancy basis, quite a few times, and can assure you that if you want to meet other singles, they do have get togethers organised at the start of every cruise. I however, am more interested when I book the cruise in the ports of call, the length of the cruise, and also the cost. I have had the pleasure of meeting many other single cruisers, and couples, on all of the ships I have been on, and I would therefore recommend that you go for a cruise itinerary that you like, there will always be other singles on board. Best of luck I hope you find what you are looking for....Bob.

I know a colleague who booked a cruise with Fred Olsen and they were happy to hear no surcharge, so he was pleased but not sure if this will apply on most cruises they offer you would need to check but most do make some sort of charge from around 20% to 70% for a sinlge person in a cabin for two. Contact the number above 0800 091 1629 and one of their cruise specialists will be able to help.

I love smaller ships, I don’t need a choice of 14 restaurants, multiple bars and lounges, rock climbing walls and ice-skating rinks, if anything it is too much choice and I find you end up flitting from bar to bar all evening, not settling in one place. Give me a Fred Olsen ship with one bar, one lounge and one theatre and I have all I need thank you very much.A couple of years ago I had the chance to visit the Hebridean Princess, the little ship that has been chartered by her Majesty f...

To tip or not to tip

By Paul Craggs

Paul Craggs's blog

 Now its a general fact that us Brits do not like to tip as much as our American cousins and when it comes to tipping its a bit of a mine field so I thought I would explain as much as I can When it comes to tipping its a general rule of thumb that on most ships its not actually compulsory there are ways round it and im about to details them out To get a bit of clarification it was only actually Norwegian that were compulsory and now they are all inclusive anyways so I guess it ...
