Hi Debbie, I'm not planning on travelling on my own - not a good traveller actually. But my SIL would like to go on a cruise and was shocked at the single supplements being charged. Is there a way round this? Are there any reputable companies around who don't charge? How does the industry get away with this?
Several of the big companies are now building ships with more single cabins and some of them Azamara for example, only charge 25% extra for solo travellers. There are some operators such as. Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) with their ship Epic and P&O with their ship Azura which have dedicated single cabins but these do tend to book very quickly. However, always look out for last minute deals, and contact the company directly by phone and ask what is on offer for single travellers. Cunard for example were offering excellent deals for single travellers prior to Christmas on their New York crossing including flights.
