With solo cruising becoming increasingly popular in recent years, cruise lines are now offering single cabin accommodation for those travellling solo. In return, single and solo travellers can expect to save more money and get more value when cruising. Whether you wish to stay in a single cabin or a swanky stateroom, you can expect endless entertainment, delectable dishes and stimulating daily activities. In between spectacular theatre shows and flavourful meals, enjoy a fabulous cocktail (or two) at one of the many chic bars and lounges – the choice is truly up to you! When solo cruising, you are the captain of your daily lineup.

Wish to socialise while solo cruising? Get the best of both worlds and enjoy the freedom of solo cruising and the camaraderie of friendship while at sea. With most cruise lines offering social events for all passengers, some cruise lines cater to solo cruisers specifically, such as Norwegian Cruise Line, with common areas designed for solo traveller socialisation.


Plenty of the cruise lines offer single cabin accommodation, however, some cruise lines may charge single supplements for your stateroom, if they do not offer single cabins or you wish to stay in a double occupancy stateroom. Not all cruise lines charge solo cruisers single supplements, so it’s important to ask your Cruise1st Cruise Specialist if certain cruise lines are able to offer discounts for solo travellers or if they can waive the single supplement fee.

FAQs about Solo Cruising

We have put together the following FAQs. We hope that you will be able to find an answer to your question below, but if you require further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact our customer service team.

What is the dining experience like for singles and solo travellers while cruising?

Some cruise lines offer solo passenger grouping when dining in the Main Dining Room so that you may have companionship when dining. For more infomation, be sure to ask the onboard Maître d’ about assigned seating for solo cruisers. If you wish for solitude while dining, the buffet area can be a great option for a quiet dining experience.

Will there be social events scheduled for singles and solo travellers while cruising?

In addition to the onboard classes and seminars most cruise lines offer, cruise lines also offer singles events for solo cruisers throughout the cruise journey, such as coffee and tea gatherings and daytime games. Make sure to check your daily programme for detailed information. 

What are shore excursions like for singles and solo travellers while at destination stops?

Shore excursions for singles and solo travellers can remain a solo experience or they can opt in for a group excursion. If you wish for a solo excursion, you may get the chance to learn more about the destination as the local guides will have your full attention. In a group excursion, you have the chance to socialise and make connections off the ship. 

Is cruising safe for singles and solo travellers?

Generally, cruising is extremely safe, whether travelling solo or accompanied, but with any type of travelling one does, preparation and precaution are key for safety whilst on holiday. For the safest solo cruise experience, we recommend participating in group excursions and tours as well as making an early connection with a fellow guest onboard.
