Cruising Solo you typically pay almost double the cruise fare, just not double port fees since you're just one person. Sometimes you can get a better price if the ship is trying to fill up cabins. I tend to see the better prices on the inside cabins.

Some cruise lines have "single cabins" on the newer ships, at regular price they are less then paying double for a inside cabin, but when a good sale is on it can be less expensive in a regular inside cabin. Some NCL ships have dedicated areas for single cabins that include a social area and bar just for the single cabins with cruise staff organizing some events for the singles. NCL call them "Studios" they are enough room for one person and rather small.

Some cruise vacation web sites have an area for sale prices on cruising single.

Great info thanks

Both RCL and NCL offer single cabins or "studios" on their newer ships for single cruisers. These cabins also include admittance to a dedicated lounge for the single cabins.

Well you learn something new every day. Good information that I can pass on. Thanks.

Vacations To Go hosts several singles cruises a year.

I cruise solo most of the time , it is worth it to me to have my own cabin

I cruise solo and I have never once yet found the studio cabins for one person cheaper than paying the single supplement (double) on a regular inside cabin. It's frustrating that the cruise line industry has not caught up with the fact that 38% of the all the people traveling are solo single travelers. I love cruising and I would do it more if I didn't have to pay double. I have to really research to find the deals. Since cruise lines can't go to Cuba, there have been a lot of cancellations because of changed itineraries, so I was able to find a cheap 5 day cruise because the itinerary changed and no one wants to go to the Bahamas.

Oh .. don't kid yourself .. they are probably well aware of the numbers but so long as people are willing to and continue to pay the single supplement they will happily continue to charge it. After all ... what are the alternatives for a single cruiser ... none.

I often cruise solo - usually Princess or Royal Caribbean. I pay 2x the rate, as one would pay as a couple or sharing with a friend. I get it - they can sell the cabin with 2 people in it, so charge that. I just got back from a River Cruise in Europe and some wanted me to pay double. There I took exception as River Cruises include excursions and drinks and I wasn’t taking a seat on a bus for two Not was I drinking for two, so thought I deserved a discount. I did get one through AmaWaterways but have heard they don’t always offer that. For ocean cruises, NCL has some solo cabins (caution: small and inside cabins) and Crystal offers single supplements less than paying for two, but they are more expensive than many as well. VacationsToGo will often give you single prices by clicking on another link once you go to the cruise you like
