Singles Cruises offer the solo traveler a variety of options from age groups and special interests to activity levels and lifestyles.

Typical costs:

  • A three-night cruise to the Bahamas from Florida in an interior room costs about $190-$460 per person, double occupancy, depending on travel date. When used as a single cabin[1] , the cost increases to $380-$920. An ocean-view room costs $210-$375 per person, double occupancy or $420-$540 for a private cabin. Full suites cost $415-$990 as a shared space or $880-$1,980 for the solo traveler. Seven-night trips to the Bahamas or Caribbean in an interior room cost about $390-$1,150 per person, double occupancy or $770-$2,050 when used as a single, depending on travel date. Per-person costs for a shared upgraded stateroom are about $560-$960 for an ocean view room, $760-$1,200 for a balcony or $910-$1,500 for a suite.
  • Four-day cruises to Mexico typically cost about $240-$570 per person, double occupancy or $480-$1,140 for a private cabin, depending on sailing date and destinations. Upgrade to a shared ocean view for $280-$650 or a suite at about $500-$960, per person. A seven-day cruise[2] costs about $350-$750, per person in a shared interior cabin or $750-$1,500 for a private room.
  • Seven-day Alaskan cruises[3] cost about $630-$1,010 per person for an interior shared cabin or $1,260-$2,020 for a private room, depending on sailing date. Extend the trip to 10-14 days at a cost of $1,100-$2,300, per person, double occupancy in an interior room or about $3,600-$4,600 for a private stateroom, depending on the length of the trip and travel date. Upgraded shared stateroom costs are $1,800-$2,200 for an ocean view, $1,800-$4,400 for a balcony and $4,500-$6,200 for a suite, per person. Due to weather, Alaskan cruises generally operate May through September.

What should be included:
  • A singles cruise will have activities and areas of the ship specifically designed for the solo traveler to meet other singles, including rotating dinner seating with other solo travelers.
  • Stateroom, room service, most shipboard dining, gym and pools, onboard nightclubs and ship-scheduled singles activities are typically included in the price.
Additional costs:
  • Envelopes for tipping[6] the different service crews will either be left in the stateroom on the last night of the cruise or may be picked up at the purser's desk. Some cruise lines offer tipping in advance, which saves about $20 per person for a seven-day cruise. On a one-week cruise, expect to pay about $70-$84 per person, or $10-$12 per day.
  • Except for specific planned events where specialty cocktails may be offered free, alcohol is not included in the price of the cruise. A separate bar bill will be delivered to the stateroom on the last night of the cruise.
  • Destination activities vary from swimming with dolphins at $100-$190 to riding horses on the beach at $80-$160 or parasailing priced $85-$100. Most outing may be scheduled through the ship to avoid currency exchange.
Discounts:
  • Check with the cruise line for reduced supplemental fees on specific unfilled cruises.
  • Active military personnel may save about 10% on specific cruises. Check with individual cruise lines or book through a travel group specializing in military discounts[7] .
  • Cruise lines offer different discounts including special savings for early bookings[8] , deals for local residents, and last-minute bookings[9] . Norwegian Cruise Line's ship Epic, travels the Caribbean and has a new studio[10] for the single traveler without a supplement fee for about $840-$1,400 per person for a private room for seven days, depending on travel date. The small studio includes bathroom and shower facilities and opens to a larger shared lounge and bar area.
Shopping for a singles cruise:
  • Connecting Solo Travel Network, helps match up solo travelers for upcoming cruises[11] and works with cruise lines to offer reduced supplement fees for those requesting private cabins.
