Singles Cruises: Which Cruise Ships Offer Singles Cruises?

Singles cruises are distinct from regular cruises in a few different respects, but they are alike in at least one major way: both types of cruises are offered by the same cruise lines, which means that singles cruises take place on the same cruise ships as regular cruises. There are not, in other words, special cruise ships that are only for singles cruises. The same cruise ships are used for theme cruises (like singles cruises) and regular cruises alike.

Singles Cruises: What do You do on a Singles Cruise?

You might be surprised to learn that a singles cruise is largely the same as a standard cruise in terms of the cruise experience itself. The activities, dining options, and travel itineraries available on singles cruises and normal cruises are alike in many ways, and the same ships are used for both.

Yet it remains a unique species nonetheless, offering as it does a vacation that appeals to a narrower subset than the general population. Moreover, what one does on a cruise will be for the most part self-determined, so of course every cruise will be unique, and this applies in equal measure to normal and singles cruises. Basically, there are many similarities and a few differences between regular cruises and singles cruises, and we propose to set them down for you. Read more [...]

Other people take them to meet like-minded people, and hence the existence of, for example, the Christian singles cruises that pop up from time to time. Basically, lots of different types of singles take singles cruises for lots of different reasons. A singles cruise needn't be a celebration of promiscuity. Read more [...]
