Hi Lois, Are you cruising on the PO river there in Northern Italy?  That should be a great trip and some beautiful scenery for you.  Hope you are staying safe down there in Jacksonville with Dorian.  It has certainly been a strange hurricane the way it just parked over the Bahamas.  Hopefully it will stay far enough off shore that you won't get any major damage down there.  Good Luck and enjoy your river cruise.  Neil

Hey Neil😁yes, sailing on The Po.

We are doing ok here actually, thanks for thinking of us. Looks like it is just some wind and not much rain here either.

My heart goes out to the people of The Bahamas for sure...

I have sailed solo twice before, both times on HAL to Alaska, and will be on HAL’s Zuiderdam for the Sept. 15-27 cruise from Quebec City to NYC.

When you cruise solo you pay double , that is why I am not smiling :classic_sad:

My advice, get a travel advisor that one of their specialties is solo travel.  They keep track of specials that have limited or no solo travel supplements and will keep your informed of solo opportunities.

 Also, for those of you over 50, don't forget Road Scholar will find a room mate for you. These are not your typical cruises, they  are  more  culturally and historically  informative , for inquiring minds.

I will be travelling on Azamara Pursuit , Jan 5, 2000 from Buenos Aires. Although I will be rooming with friends, they are a couple and I don't always want to be the 3rd wheel.  There are a lot of sea days on this cruise. I'm looking for others to hang out with some days or to join up  with us for outings.

Then why do you cruise so often, if you are not happy paying double??

To those who travel solo:

I too travel solo and am tired of paying double.  Cruises N Maritime, and Fred Olsen have some cruises withOUT single supplement.  Cunard only surcharges 150%!!

You might want to look into their pricing.  Just a heads up.

I've been on several cruises - Silversea. Regent Seven Seas, Crystal - and I have never paid double.  Sure, there are some destinations that hardly ever have lower single supplements but I've gotten as low as 10% on Silversea.  Do your homework!

Sure, you have never paid "double". That is because you are traveling on luxury lines. They already charge double or triple a fare of a "regular" cruise line.  I am sure Mr GTV cruiser, who has basically started this thread and been on zillions of cruises, has done his homework.

As much as I like to not pay a lot of extra money for a solo, in the end of the day, I'll pay what I need to to get the trip I want (or I guess I won't do it at all, if it comes to it).

 

I'm definitely paying double on my Panama Canal cruise, but it's 16 days (my longest yet), and it's a spa balcony in a prime location--I decided to live a little. 🙂 But then on my next cruise after that, I'm in an awful little solo cabin down in steerage, but I don't really care and the cruise is already costly, as it's a holiday.

 

Bless Royal Caribbean for giving double points for double rooms booked as solos, though.

 

Roll call wise, my next solos are as follows (and are in my signature):

 

Star Trek: the Cruise IV (March 2020)

NCL Bliss - Panama Canal (November 2020)

RCL Adventure of the Seas - Western Caribbean (December 2020)

Actually, Josey, I have found that when all is said and done - after paying gratuities, excursions, drinks, specialty restaurants, etc., that it works out to be about the same amount.

Norwegian has many last minute deals on September 4 and 5 night cruises out of Miami and Port Canaveral FL to Bahamas along with Key West (on some sailings).  Solo rates start at $129 + taxes/fees of $125-175.
