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".

By Amy Ginder

Amy Ginder's blog

This time of year we have a lot of calls asking for late availability for the school holidays. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is very late in the day. Most cruise lines have filled all of their 3 and 4 berth cabins and those that have space will charge you astronomical prices.So what do you do if you are looking to cruise in the school holidays? The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...

 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 ...
