Some cruise lines do allow single passengers to share BUT you never know who you might get, eek!. Or you can pay a single supplement which varies from line to line and might be less than 200%. For example a cruise I have booked for this September is about 38% and for September 2009 16%, hooray, at least until discounting kicks in for late bookers.

Don't know whch cruise line you plan to travel with but some ships have single cabins which are more pricey than if you travel as a couple but are pretty good value.

Every cruise line has its own policy on single occupancy supplements. Many charge double (less the cost of the second air fare), some charge £xxx per week supplement e.g Ocean Village, while P&O for example vary the percentage supplement across all their cruise offerings (see there brochure for details). Having said that there are often special deals available so its worth contacting a few cruise agents and asking what special offers they have available and keep asking on a regular basis as these offers come and go.

So that means be there on time , and probably queue to get on, or go to the buffet.Dining time s...

Yes, Cruises Really Do Sell Out!!.

By Alison Ranaldi

This morning a two night cruise on Celebrity Silhouette went on sale for 28th April next year.This will be the first time Silhouette has sailed from Southampton so a great opportunity to see the ship without the hassle of flying. At a lead-in fare from just 299pp including all drinks, food, entertainment and gratuities, it was a bargain.Silhouette takes nearly three thousand passengers and as I write this, there are only a handful of cabins remaining which we expect to see go in the next hour...

Last week I enjoyed an extended weekend away to visit my family in Wales, mainly to celebrate my beautiful nieces 18th birthday. It was lovely as I had my own family with me for the weekend part, then I had some well needed pamper time with my sister (well a dip in her hot tub!) oh and yes it was my birthday also so went to see Coldplay in Cardiff.Cardiff did not disappoint, 41 years on from the hottest summer ever, it was bucketing rain all day! A bit like last year when I saw the Manics in...
