Cruises are a wonderful opportunity for sharing unforgettable moments and experiencing a whole host of new and exciting discoveries along the way. 

However, you don’t necessarily have to go on a cruise holiday with other people. In fact, many cruisers have just as much of a worthwhile time when going it alone. And if you are one of the many people that enjoy setting off on a solo adventure, we might just be able to help you.

Here at Cruise Nation, we believe that every holiday should be designed with your comfort and requirements in mind. That’s why we have dedicated this post entirely to those who are contemplating cruising alone. 

If you are considering cruising solo and you want to learn the do’s and don’ts before booking a voyage, read on and let us help you prepare for that holiday of a lifetime. 

Choosing a ship and cabin

This is particularly important when cruising alone because in most cases, you are going to want a ship that’ll feel intimate. Smaller ships tend to be quite social and you’re likely to come across the same faces throughout your holiday. 

In recent years, some of the newest cruise ships have become more accommodating to solo travelers. Certain Norwegian Cruise Line ships have added in studio cabins with prices for single occupancy and feature a shared social space called the Studio Lounge. This is where solo travelers can meet other guests that are holidaying alone. 

Royal Caribbean have also jumped on the bandwagon and have introduced 28 dedicated solo cabins aboard the Quantum of the Seas and the Anthem of the Seas. These rooms include virtual balconies made up of 80-inch floor-to-ceiling LED screens projecting real-time ocean and port views. 

It’s worth looking into which cruise line might be best for you if you are a solo traveler. One cruise might offer you something that another one doesn’t, so research is key! 

What to do once you’ve booked a cabin

When it comes to cruising alone, there’s definitely an art to making it a happy and productive affair. With that in mind, here are a few tips for mixing and mingling while aboard:
