Ten Reasons to Cruise Solo
With an emphasis on security, the controlled environment that a cruise provides means that solo travellers can have peace of mind – they can feel safe taking a midnight stroll, or returning back to their cabin late at night. This security often isn't found in other forms of solo travelling.
There is no need to plan and pay for hotels, transportation, dinner, entertainment, tipping and so on – almost everything is already included in your cruise fare. And what isn't, your Cruise Specialist will be able to organise for you!
Exploration and Adventure
The world awaits you, whether you travel with friends, family or solo... so don't miss out on your next adventure. A cruise is the perfect way to explore new horizons, and if you are a bit unsure of doing this on your own, shore excursions offered by the cruise line are the perfect way to still get out and experience a new adventure.
Dining alone can be boring and/or lonely, but cruising means never having to eat alone! On a cruise, dining is a group experience, and seating is assigned on many ships. You can also sometimes request to dine with other solo cruisers.
Meeting New People
The restaurant isn't the only place to meet new people on a cruise – the opportunities are endless! Participate in on board activities, or attend the singles functions if there are any. And, on a cruise, once you have met someone new, it is so easy to see them again – the ship may be large, but it is still a confined space.
If you are a single lady on a cruise, there is no need to become a dance floor wallflower – many cruises offer gentleman hosts for your dancing pleasure!
Activities, activities and more activities!
From high-energy activities such as rock-climbing, golf and basketball, to less strenuous activities like cooking classes, chess and bingo, you can be as active or as a sedate as you wish on a cruise. You are the master of your own fate, but participating in the activities is another opportunity to meet like- minded people.
Rejuvenate your Spirit
A cruise is the perfect opportunity to pamper and spoil yourself, with the magnificent spa and gym facilities, as well as the indulgent shopping venues. You have no one else to look after on a solo cruise, so look after yourself – go ahead, splurge!
Sailing Solo is Empowering
Cruising on your own means you get to do it all your own way. You have total freedom to make all the decisions - sleep in, go out late, go on a shore excursion or have a ship day – the choice is all yours and you never need to compromise. It's incredible liberating!
