Cruises for Singles – A Beginner’s Guide
For the solo traveler, singles cruise are the ultimate equalizer, as most people you’ll meet will be there on their own (just like you).
This takes a lot of the pressure off of meeting people as everybody is in the same boat (no pun intended!)
Cruises for singles offer you the chance to meet new people, join in on fun activities and see the world – all while having a relaxing vacation.
In this article we’ll take a look at what you can expect from a singles cruise, whether cruises for singles are for you and how to get the most out of them.
What to Expect on a Singles Cruise
These days, most cruise ships are designed to be like floating hotels, so you can expect the kind of good service you’d find in a hotel, along with the pampering services of a top quality spa.
In addition to this, most cruise ships contain a whole host of amenities/activities for your entertainment (such as swimming pools, tennis courts and casinos).
Of course, since everyone on a singles cruise will be without a partner (although not necessarily looking for love), there will be plenty of opportunities to meet people and expand your social circle.
You’ll often meet people over dinner or through various daily activities (such as dancing).
Cruises for Singles – Are They for You?
Once upon a time, cruises were reserved only for the wealthy. This is no-longer the case, and nowadays you’ll see families, couples, seniors citizens and solo travelers all taking – and enjoying – cruises.
The number of young people taking singles cruises is said to have increased in the past ten years – possibly due to the fact that there are now more cruise liners than ever, but it does show their increasing popularity.
So are these kinds of cruises for you? Well, first of all, are you single? Secondly, do you enjoy being out at sea and seeing the world?
Cruises for singles can be tailored to fit all ages and interests, so you’ll never find yourself doing anything you don’t fancy and you can join in or be as passive as you like.
Finding a Roommate – One Way to Save Money
Cruises for singles can be expensive, so one way to save money and considerably increase your travel budget is to consider cabin share.
Some cruise operators provide a ‘Find a travel companion’ service that allows solo travelers to pair up with other people with similar interests/personalities.
Your travel partner will often be of the same sex as you (as you’d expect, as it’s not Match.com) and usually of a similar age.
Remember – cruises for singles can be tailored to how you want to spend your time, whether you want to mingle with others or spend time on your own, these cruises offer many options and choices to consider.
