What’s the best ship for solo passengers? Any good experiences travelling alone?

Celebrity Cruises

There’s no particular cruise ship which is the best for solo passengers and a large number of cruise lines cater for solo cruisers, by way of offering solo cabins or supplements for lone passengers. Holland America Line enjoys a good reputation for catering for solo passengers, with a range of activities geared towards them and a Single Partner’s Program which matches passengers of the same sex who are willing to share cabins. Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Epic offers 128 studio cabins which are aimed at solo passengers specifically, while P&O’s Azura offers 18 cabins built specifically for single passengers. Both lines offer these rooms with no solo supplement to pay. P&O also offer a number of cabins available for single occupancy with an additional supplement to pay and offer coffee mornings aimed at single cruisers on voyages of three nights or more. Crystal Cruises is a line where solo passengers can feel at home, as they make up 15 per cent of the line’s customers. Crystal hosts singles parties on-board its ships, and offers attractive solo discounts on a number of staterooms. Fred Olsen Cruises and Costa cruises both offer a number of solo cabins, while on Seabourn vessels, solo passengers receive special consideration when it comes to dinner invites, and solo discounts of typically 50 per cent.
