Whether you wish to meet like-minded people or escape by yourself into the big blue, a cruise holiday is a perfect option for both singles and solo travellers. Not solely the domain of honeymooners, couples, families and groups of friends, a luxury cruise also suits solo holidaymakers for all the same reasons.
With such a wide scope of global destinations, cruise companies and cruise styles to choose from, you can really tailor your vacation to suit. Boutique small ships offer an intimate environment where you can get to know your fellow passengers and also see sights off the beaten track with expert commentary – perfect for niche interests and meeting like-minded people. Larger luxury liners offer all the creature comforts of a floating resort with plenty of onboard activities and entertainment, onshore excursions, dining and pampering options where it’s your choice whether you interact or retreat and relax. If you’d prefer to indulge in the latest blockbuster or book, or take a turn at karaoke or around the dancefloor – the choice is yours!
For a holiday without the hassle, a singles or solo cruise is your perfect match. A cruise vacation package generally includes accommodation, main meals and beverages, onboard entertainment and activities, onshore excursions and even all onboard gratuities as part of the price. An all-inclusive cruise means less organising on your part and more time to plan the fun stuff. Most cruise lines offer single occupancy cabins so you are free to relax in your own space and explore exciting port stops around the world at your leisure.
Another reason why cruises are ideal for the solo traveller is the ability to visit multiple destinations on the one holiday. Whether an island-hopping cruise through the Caribbean appeals or you’d prefer to traverse the Antarctic Peninsula, there’s a cruise for you.
