My enquiries are P & O charge a single supplement between 50% and 90% which added to the basic fare equates to two people sharing. They only allocated a small number of twin cabins for single occupancy. Once these have been taken they then charge cabins at twin rates. QE2 have limited single cabins but it is old. Stick to a modern, clean ship.

Some cruise lines like Fred Olsen, Spirit of Adventure, Voyages of Discovery have single cabins which are tailored for singles. However, most cruiselines you have to pay a suppliment so you may aswell take friend with you as it costs as much if not mort.

I am aware that P&O do single cabins in the JA to OH on Oceana but there is a single supplment which you need to pay. The single supplement varies from cruise to cruise. You will need to speak to you travel agent for the exact supplement that you will need to pay.

There are many Cruise lines that cater for Single Travellers depending on itinerary, ship and obviously availability. Some cruise lines will charge a supplement for for selling a double cabin for sole occupancy similar to a hotel. best thing to do is talk to your travel agaent and discuss the best ship and itinerary that will suit you best.

Did you know that 10 Years ago around 60,000 British Holidays makers took a Nile cruise compared to approximately 4000 in 2016.

 Thomson Cruises have made some changes in recent years and things are really working for them, in the last 5 years they have seen an increase in passenger numbers of 40%, with 20% being in the last year alone.They have always been looked down upon by a lot of customers, although unjustly so as their reviews have always been good. But with older ships and less of the pomp and ceremony of other lines they have been viewed as being at the lower end of the market.In 2016, they made a major ...
