a couple of years ago i was booking cruises as a single person without paying double the price...I believe they call this "single supplement"......Now its difficult to find these cheaper last minute rates for a single ........I am very flexible and can go last minute however it does not seem the cruise lines are offering these last minute single deals, and would rather leave the rooms empty..does anybody have any information or websites, travel agents, that offer these last minute services......
Single Supplement and or Last Minute Cruise
Princess offers Last Minute Cruise Deals "Drop & Go". When I have cruised solo, they upgrade my room and adjusted the fare ... not sure if that is always done or dependent upon the cruise.
I have heard of NCL doing it as recently as last October. Also most of the newer NCL ships now have cabins for singles. They call them studios.
Single travel is getting more and more popular. One travel website that I go to has a tab for "single supplement". I had used it a couple years ago for great price on a single cabin on Carnival. I have noticed that lately it is only on the high line cruise ships.
Last min cruises are very hard now a days so i'm told. I can't do too much last minute because of work and arrangements. I wouldn't want to cruise solo though, I need some company
thanks for the replies.......i guess i should have clarified that i need a balcony room..........I love to cruise solo and take the time to reset, rest and think clearly about the future......Hard to do with people around all the time.......I will take 3-4 cruises and 2 will be with the wife, and a couple more solo......
I think that these accommodations are very popular and are more prevalent on newer ship. Visit a good cruise travel agent for best results. Consider booking earlier than last minute, too.
On Norwegian, the solo studios have their own separate entrance and pass key. Similar to the Haven. From what I have heard, in place of the grand buffet, they have what is called Le Grande Orgy. I don't speak French, so I don't know what that is.
Last year, RCL did away with the last minute discounting practice altogether. They preferred to sail partially full than have to deal with all the requests for the lower fares from people who previously booked the trip.

The Big Orgy.....I think I might need to do a solo cruise on Norwegian now.
I found the perfect way to always pay 1/2 the price. I've been using this company for almost a year now and saved so much money on my cruises. See my profile for info.
