Solo Travel


Cruising is a great way to travel solo!

In the last several years, a variety of lines have introduced single-occupancy cabins on their ships, as well as events and activities just for those traveling solo. Whether you want an active, entertaining cruise line, more of a premium or luxury experience, or even a river or expeditionary cruise, there’s a line perfect for you, the solo traveler.

Why Travel Solo?

Cruise lines take great care of their solo travelers, offering a range of activities designed just for you. These can range from games, cocktail parties, coffee gatherings, “Table for 8” dining with a group of other solos, dance classes and mixers. Norwegian Cruise Line has a lounge dedicated for the solos onboard, complete with a message board to facilitate meeting others onboard and finding people with whom to share dining or shore excursions. Some lines have “Gentlemen Hosts” aboard as dance partners and dinner escorts. Cunard even provides escorts for both men and women.

Solo travel is the ultimate in freedom. You decide what, when, where and with whom. Linger at the market or café on the Piazza. There’s a basic structure if you want, or go entirely your own way. Meet others to join you in adventure, or come back with stories which are as unique as you are.
