I think you will have to phone the freephone number to book. (Maybe they will still let you have the online discount as it is not your fault you can't book online!).

Yes, but you will have to pay a supplement. Each cruise line varies it can be as much as 100% although I believe Fred Olsen do some good rates for single occupancy.

Some cruises do have single staterooms but then you are limited to where they go not where you might like to go,since i lost my wife just over a year ago,my eyes have been opened to just how unfair singles are treated.one minute you can pay say,£4,000 for two people before you know where you are,wham you are paying the same amount,if not more to travel on your own.mind you having said all that i do wonder just how big a single cabin would be,because ordinary double staterooms do not have that much space to spare with two human torso's moving around in them.i could go on and on but knowbody listens,most comments i feel fall on deaf ears.Tony.

I am single and booked a two-week fly cruise in the Caribbean for Nov 2008, paying about £1,800. I booked three months before sailing. Two weeks before departure the same cruise in a comparable inside cabin was being advertised for couples at an amazing £640 each including flights to and from the UK. I believe that the reason why cruise lines sting the single passenger is that they make their money from onboard expenditure, eg drinks, gambling, photos, shore excursions. Singles usually occupy a double cabin and the proceeds are therefore reduced. Someone will realise one day that singles are a neglected section of the market.

I've been looking as my dad is an 'avid' cruiser, but last September my mother passed away so now unfortunatly he's by himself. he's been saying that he would like to g away on a cruise this year, probably to Antarctic, as this a place he would really love to see but is also saying the single supplement is so big. I'm going to keep looking for him, but if your able to find something my email is ##################### Good luck to both of you.

I have booked a cruise with P&O and the single cabin was not a huge amount bigger than the double, when I enquired about Cunard they charge double the money, so they all vary, ring and enquire, you might be surprised (pleasantly I hope), regards, .

Past Passenger Discounts for N...

By Jo Cunningham

The world of cruising has always offered past passenger dicsounts in order to promote loyalty but in recent years many cruise lines have scaled down their generosity. P&O, Cunard and Fred Olsen all offer less discounts now than then used to.MSC on the other hand, despite being one of Europe’s largest cruise lines are keen to increase their British customer base and are extending their loyalty scheme to non past passengers too.MSC have always had one of the best past passenger scheme...

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...
