Norwegian Escape, Breakaway and Getaway are great for solo cruisers. If you are going solo, try the studio cabins, which are less expensive than the regular cabins. They are only 100 square feet but have a really cool design (and the bed is full or queen, not twin). If you are traveling with a friend but you each want your own cabin, you can get adjoining studios with an inside door between the rooms. Also, there is an active solo travelers group, even if you are not in a studio. If you are in the mood to meet people, there is a solo travelers happy hour every evening, so you can make friends to go to dinner or a show or an excursion. Do not sit home if you don’t have someone to travel with! These cruises are fun and social. (Epic also has studios, but I don’t like the ship as much.)

Also, these three ships have the Ocean Front on deck 8. It’s a great place to walk (NOT jog) outdoors early in the morning, because it is a much longer circle than the jogging track. You can also bring a book to read on a comfy chair in the shade in the morning or afternoon. The restaurant guests take up the space in the evening.

Specially designed for solos. Really different feel from a normal cabin. The have lights that can rotate colors-- red, pink, purple, blue, etc., or you can just use white lights. Compact and needs a little more storage.

Ship Tip

For walkers, skip the jogging track and go to deck 8 for a nice big circle ( during the early hours. In the afternoon an evening it is filled with guests of the specialty restaurants.
There is a comedy club which fills up so make reservations.
