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.

Well I am back from my Italian holiday and I paid a visit to Trento, the capital city of Trentino Alto Adige in the north of Italy nestled between the Alps. The drive to Trento was lovely and the view driving through by car was amazing, we were surrounded my mountain by their white tips all the way there. Verona to Trento is about 1 hour and there are good train connections.We visited an Aeronautical museum of Giovan Battista Caproni, one of the most important engineers of Aeroplane’s h...

It seems to me these days that people spend so much time moaning and whingeing about this and that, nothing works like it should and nothing is ever good enough, I thought it nice to share the thoughts of this refreshingly positive chap recently stranded on the NCL Star out in Australia.Francis Lahue and his wife were passengers of the Norwegian Star as it faced engine problems last Friday morning after leaving port. The luxury cruise ship was forced to bob without direction 30km off the coas...
