Anyone who has booked a cruise before will understand that booking as a solo traveller can be very expensive. Cruise cabins are often sold based on two people sharing, so booking just one place can often incur hefty single supplements, ranging anywhere from 50%-100% on top! There are ways of finding great deals for solo passengers, however, and it certainly pays to do your research online.
One of the best ways to get a better deal as a single cruise passenger is to contact a specialist travel agency. There are lots of travel agencies which cater for single travellers, so search online to find one you like the look of. There are some which specialise in cruise holidays too, so they can usually find the cheapest prices for you.
Another way to search is via last minute deals. There are a number of websites available which offer last minute deals for cruise holidays, so if you are not too fussy with the date you travel, you can sometimes get some cracking deals!
