Solo travellers - whether cruising single with friends, or just cruising single to meet people - will find a comfortable berth on new ships such as P&O International’s Azura and Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Epic.
The Epic not only boasts 128 studio lofts for individuals but one of only 14 exclusive Ice Bars in the world - it's a frozen Vodka chamber with blue LED lights that simulates the Arctic's Northern Lights.

Azura and Epic have been built with special cabins and facilities for single cruisers.
The Epic's studio lofts connect to a private, singles' shared lounge/bar. Some of the studio lofts are connected to allow for singles cruisers traveling together but who want some privacy and space. The Epic only cruises Europe and the Caribbean out of Miami.
Smaller cruise lines such as the Aegean Odyssey, and European cruise lines such as Costa Cruises, often do not charge single supplements - the fee companies charge to cover the cost of losing a fare and onboard revenue. Viking River Cruise and APT, specialists in river cruises in Europe, also provide single rooms on ships such as the Viking Prestige (which has six single state rooms). AMA Waterways in Europe, normally charges a 50 percent single supplement. They have a 100 percent supplement for junior suites - except for seasonal promotions.
Cruiseabout consultants will advise you on special organised group cruises for singles, such as cruises for mature-aged singles, or party cruises for 18-35s.
And P&O Australia may be renowned for South Pacific cruises for 18-35s who want to party but now there's P&O International's Azura, with 18 individual rooms for solo cruisers who just want their own space - there's also the adults only space aboard the Azura called The Retreat, 12 bars and seven dining areas. You don't pay expensive singles supplements to cruise Europe, the Mediterranean or the Caribbean on the Azura.
Britain's P&O International Cruises also caters for people cruising solo on the iconic Oriana - if you're looking for world cruises for one.
Cunard have no single cabins but their single supplements are below 50 percent of the full fare - other cruise lines which do the same include: Hurtigruten, P&O, Princess Cruises, Regent Seven Seas, Seabourn, Silversea, Voyages of Discovery and Voyages to Antiquity
Single ladies who love to dance do not miss out when sailing with cruise lines such as Cunard, Crystal Cruises and Holland America which offer a gentleman host who just turns out to be a ballroom dancer. Single men don't worry because you will most likely be outnumbered by three to one by the gals.
Orion Expedition Cruises, which has five cabins reserved for single travellers sometimes waives the single supplement on special deals for some markets and destinations.
