The supplemement varies from around 20% to 70% this website might help as it shows which cruise lines charge less than a 50% supplement and those listed but not mentioned charge in excess of 50%, but deals can be available here from time to time.

Hi - I have paid as much as 100 per cent supplement but I would only pay that for a cruise I really wanted to go on and for a late booking. Quite often my travel agent will get something else like free insurance, increased on board credit, an upgrade or one ore more dinners in a paying restaurant to off set it. Usually I pay about 40 per cent but that is as a result of early booking - sometimes up to 18 months in advance. I have heard other singles claim that they managed to get a cruise without a supplement by booking on a Tuesday and travelling on a Friday or whatever but I cannot do that for 2 reasons - firstly I like to have time to look forward to my cruise and plan my trips (usually not the ships excursions) and secondly I am not organised enough to have a full suitcase of cruise clothes and other bits and bobs ready at the drop of a hat.

The M1 Out of sight out of mind!

‘Most have heard of the M1 , that long South-North motorway that connects London to Leeds, but did you know that on a cruise ship they have ther very own “M1”. This is the central busy hub under the passenger decks which cruise members use to make their way round the ship, and on our recent trip on the brand New Majestic Princess we were welcomed to the M1 for an exclusive tour. This eye opening tour was simply mind boogling the amount of people down their...

I cannot believe how quickly my little Norway trip has come around, It’s almost time!On 25th May, I am off on a 5 night fjords cruise on the Brilliant Balmoral. This will be my third cruise on this ship and I just love the Balmoral and Fred Olsen the most! This trip will be what Fred Olsen are known for, based on the Norwegian heritage they say nobody does the Fjords better than Fred!Being a 26 year old cheap means I am certainly not a typical Fred Olsen guest, they tend to attract an ...
