It does appear to be unfair that a single person has to pay so a large suuplement for single occupancy. The only way around this is to book late (some people unfortunately can't do this) if the cruise is out of the main season and isn't selling well many cruise lines will often no single occupancy supplements. It is also worth considering cruising on a 5 star line, often their single occupancy tariff is much less than the standard lines meaning you can cruise on a much better ship for a similar price.

WORLD CUP EVERY 4 YEARS ...

By Wayne Frieslander

Wayne Frieslander's blog

You might only get to enjoy a World Cup once every four years but you could enjoy a World Cruise every year, and that’s not as daft as it might sound.
