Cruising single can be one of the best holidays you’ll ever have. With just your own mind to make up you can enjoy freedom of choice for where you sail, when you sail and on which ship you sail.
You can also decide on the pace of your holiday with plenty of options for a completely relaxing cruise or an active adventure with lots to see and do.
Whether you’re single and ready to mingle or happy going it alone, there are plenty of options on a cruise holiday to suit both situations. Organised activities and single cruiser mixers make perfect opportunities to socialise and make new friends; whilst quiet areas, single occupancy cabins and spas make ‘me-time’ enjoyable.
So if a solo cruise is on your mind but you’re not sure where to begin, take a look at some of our favourite cruise lines that have a lot of love for singles.
