When one thinks of solo traveling, what comes to mind is backpacking across Europe or roughing it out in impoverished countries. Cruises have always been the domain of family travelers or the incredibly wealthy. Many cruise lines even add single supplements for people residing in spaces designed for more than one person. That is not the case anymore, with cruise lines offering single cabins which are spacious and luxurious, they offer discounts for solo travelers as well.
Norwegian Cruise Line
The Norwegian Cruise Line has been voted ‘the best cruise line for solo travelers’ six years in a row by porthole magazine. It is the first cruise line to include studio staterooms for solo travelers. Sadly, they don’t come with a sea view, but regular staterooms can also be booked at twice the cruise fare, with gratuities and taxes only counted for one.
Apart from this, staff aboard the ship also organize singles meet-ups and bar crawls. Their Bahamas and Greek islands packages are highly recommended.
