    Single supplement vs Paying for 2

    Hi All

    I've never cruised Solo and now find myself in a position that I may have to. I've been looking at prices and some of the single supplements are showing as 5k plus for a 14 night cruise but the an inside cabin or outside cabin is 1k - 1.5k per person. What I want to know is, could I just book an inside for 2 people, or do I actually have to register a second person travelling?

    Thanks in advance for your responses.

    Daryl

    Look like Passion may be a Global Travel group franchise using their client account for protection.

    Also a distinct lack of ATOL information for the fly cruises on the web or in emails.
    I accept that TD and a valid point. However I was only pointing it out.

    BTW there was a recent failure of a Global Travel group member - non-cruising - I don't know how that was finalised.

    Yes a good site but if your a cautious bunny, the company are not members of ABTA.

    After being let down by a friend, I requested the price for a solo traveller on a cruise we were looking at that cost £1099. The price for me alone was £2075 - almost double. I have since booked a cruise with NO SS - 22 nts.Genoa to Rio for £1399. So bargains are out there if you search hard enough and put yourself on the mailing list of lots of Cruise Agents, including Cruise.co.uk!

    Correct.

    Or sometimes they show zero availability when there is availability on the cruise line web site.

    Now I always check the cruise line web site 1st.

    The issue with the solo pricing is some on some deals the discounts are only applicable to the 2 pax rate.

    Seen this with GTY rates stick in 1 pax and they disappear.

    No shows are a big risk, the T&C give the cruise line a lot of leeway(probably not all legal) but I suspect they do look at the circumstances.
    I have also noticed issues with the cruise lines own websites and solo pricing eg NCL have the option to show solo rates but the price in searches is not the solo rate, when you select the price changes, sometimes up sometimes down.

    one place that is quite good is cruise dot if looking at a particular cruise if you change the No. PAX it updates.

    Thanks everyone. The cruise I wanted became available again for £99 a night which I am happy with for an August sailing. There were only a few sites that I could clearly find single cruises listed , but maybe I'm just looking in the wrong places.

    Happy Cruising :-)
    Well done a good price for a peak time ,have a great cruise..Taffy

    There are sites that list cruises without single supplements. I won't name them, but they are easy to find. Cruise dot used to have a link on the front page, but it doesn't seem to be there any more.

    If I find a cruise that states no single supplement, then I do look around to see if it really is a good deal. Unfortunately that isn't always the case.

    If you can cruise outside peak times ,then deals can be done.
    A friend got a cabin for an Extra 15% when HAL were struggling to fill a cruise.Using decent agent would help they would inform you of any deals going...Taffy

    I know someone who did that once..... but the freebie cruiser thought the donor would pick up the drinks bill as well

    Or find an alternative holiday without penal clauses - they do exist
