I am looking for a cruise for singles over 40


I am looking for a cruise for singles over 40. Could you point me in the right direction please?

You can of course travel on any cruise ship and have a great time, but certainly for singles over 40, it’s perhaps advisable to choose a line or ship where the focus is not so much on families or younger singles. Which line and ship you choose also depends on if you are travelling as a solo cruiser or are travelling with others over 40, as single supplements apply in most cases to solo travelers, meaning you’ll have to pay a percentage again of your fare, and this can vary considerably from one line to the next.

Princess Cruises operates a number of cruises specifically aimed at singles of 40 years and above through the Singles at Sea programme. The line also operates a Match programme, where separate single cruisers of the same sex can share a room and benefit from a reduced rate.

If you are travelling on your own, Holland America is a line which caters well for solo guests, offering a number of activities aimed at single cruisers and a Single Partner’s Programme, which works in the same way as Princess’s Match programme.

P&O Cruises meanwhile, operate two vessels, the Oriana and Arcadia, which are both adults-only, meaning there’s more chance of like-minded singles being on-board.

Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Epic is another ship to consider, as it offers 128 studio cabins aimed specifically at single cruisers.
