Cruising is ideal for a single person. I will be going on my eigth cruise, this year, all of which have been as a singleton, with single occupancy of a twin cabin, and all with P&O. It is very easy to meet new people on board, you can join in as many activiites as you want, or quietly sit and read, there is no pressure to join in, if you don't want to. One tip I would give is when you make your dining request, ask for a large table, six or more. You meet far more people this way.

Probably one of the best kind of holiday for singles. It can prove a little expensive for single travellers for, like hotels, they cater mainly for couples. Several cruise lines eg SAGA, Fred. Olsen, P&O have dedicated single cabins but on others you can book (at a price)a double cabin for single occupancy. On board ship it is easy to integrate into the community and make friends. You will not be the only "singleton".

You will honestly find something for every palette at each meal on board.Viking is one of the best k...

P&O and Cunard cruises have for a good while now offered extra on-board credit to serving or ex forces guests. Previously this just had to be added on request at time of booking (not on a Saver fare) and guests may on-board be asked for paperwork to prove their eligibility on-board or lose it (although my clients said that they never got asked ).No both P&O and Cunard have moved the goal posts and require people who book after the 1st March 2018 to be registered for a Defence Discoun...
