Cruise Search

I think there could be a couple of ways to do this. One would be to find a specialist travel company that have group booked a number of rooms on a ship (lot of national and local papers advertise these types of holidays). An alternative would be to contact a cruise line direct and ask the question. As a single traveller myself I had the option to pay the single supplement or alternatively share a room when I went with Island, I chose to pay the extra however as I went in Oct the ship they waivered the single supplement and the room was half full anyway with a number of rooms free so I dont think anyone would have shared. Potentially therefore if you decided to book out or near the start/end of season even if you agree to share you might find you get a room to yourself anyway. One word of advice I would point out that shared rooms are typically offered on a same sex basis and no other spec so you could end up with anyone from a party animal to someone who snores and smells. I think in this world climate it should be quite easy to get the single supplement knocked off and if your flexible on the dates you could even grap yourself a bigger better bargain. I booked initially for a week and then changed my mind and wanted to go for two. I got a price for 1 week then for 2. The 2 weeks ended up being cheaper than just the one week with all inc also in the package. Good luck.

I dont know of a web site but I do know that a couple of cruise lines will take details and match up people who want to share. P & O certainly did it (last time I met someone in a shared cabin was 2007)and maybe princess also.

I Am Back!

By Gail Ryan

I am back.What is it about taking time off for a holiday?From the day you book your holiday to the day you leave seems to take an age to come around, but once you are there the days fly by and you are soon sat back at your desk and the sun and sea seem like a distant dream! It’s just not fair.I have once again been to Cyprus for my annual family holiday. The weather seems to get better every year – it must be this Global warming they keep on talking about!
