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 am a single man & have been on several cruises. I found that i had to book a double cabin and pay any thing up to 75% extra. I always request a table with 6 persons to dine with ,this way i get to meet ather people to talk to & may be go a trips ashore with.
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, .
