Recommended Posts

Hi,Just got a good deal on a interior promenade cabin on Adventure of Seas May3 sailing-12 nights, Caribbean ports.  It is a repositoning cruise tho.  I paid $1373.55 for all port and taxes with a $83.00 obc.  Used travel agent that has cruise and more in it's title.  Other good rates for singles on other interior cabins.  Don't know about other catergories.  If interested,look into  this soon,cabins are getting lesser being available.

So much for resisting temptation. I booked a Sail Away balcony for the NCL Joy 5-day Pacific Coastal cruise for $387. That includes a $50 ShoreEx credit which covers all but $2 of the hop-on hop-off bus in San Francisco. No booze package, but I'll have orange juice from the buffet and free mediocre sparkling wine for being a Latitudes member. Mimosas at sunset, anyone?

Oceanview is only $49 more. Too bad that I am already cruising that week. 😀

Today I booked the Celebrity Reflection 14-day Transatlantic Ft Lauderdale-Dublin departing April 24. The inside category Z guarantee sells for $499 and the single supplement is supposed to be 200% according to the price link below:

 

http://www.creative.rccl.com/Sales/Exciting_Deals/XcitingDeals_cel_tues.pdf

 

BUT.....if you try to book on line w/Celebrity or any Internet Travel Agent site, if you enter -1- person traveling it won't bring up the category Z guarantee as an option for solo guests. It defaults to much higher rates in categories that you select a stateroom. 

So I called Celebrity to inquire. The Agent on the phone said the booking systems for some reason don't allow solos on guarantees, however they ARE in fact available. You just have to KNOW to call in as opposed to booking on line. She took my information and had to have another department create the booking to override the system. Before she went to do that she confirmed with me I'd be paying 200% of $499 which I understood and agreed. It took about 10 minutes, and when she came back on the line she broke down my fare as follows:

 

$649 cruise fare (that is only 125% instead of 200%)

$144 gov't taxes/fees

$59 Celebrity Cruise Care Insurance (which I opted to include)

Total price: $827

 

I thought she must be mistaken about the price, but didn't ask questions and gave her my credit card and paid for the cruise. 

 

Sorry to be so long winded, but if anyone is interested, you have to call Celebrity directly and ask for the Category Z as a solo. Can't be booked on line.

My mistake and too late to edit. My cruise fare is $624, not $649. 😉

The July 3rd Alaska sailing (ex-Seattle) of RCL's Ovation of the Seas has some great deals for singles. Balcony is $954 ($1161 all in). You then should be able to Lift & Shift it to July 2021. Interior is $725, OV is $850. 

 

The equivalent date in 2021 would cost $2278 ($2503 all in).

I’m booked on Enchanted Princess March 27, 2021 to the Caribbean. REALLY good price on their newest ship. Also, Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas to Alaska in June 20, 2021 has a really good price on solo virtual balcony cabins

My online t/a is showing a 100% single supplement, i don't see the deal. Are you getting better than that? This is re: Enchanted Princess

The Alaska cruise I found says it sails June 21, 2021 for $1947, is that the one you got?

I’m paying 1426.00 for an interior to myself. I believe it is 100% single supplement, but still a good price. I also took advantage of their Princess Plus promo ... for an extra $250 you get the Premium Drink Package, WiFi and Gratuities all covered. (Normally the drink package alone is 500 bucks)

Just booked solo Dubai to Savona  Italy with Costa UK for £1,156. This is a inside cabin for 30 days, 29 nights. Departing Dubai 12th March 2022, i paid part with A voucher from a cancelled cruise with Costa. 

Although its some time out hopefully the world will be a different place by then.

MSC Divina from Pt Canaveral 10/3/21 or 10/17/21 7 night.   Solo Balcony Bella $879 (+128 taxes) with $100 OBC -   price 5% to 10% lower for MSC Club members (depending on status) with additional $100 OBC provided.

 

 "Balcony for the price of an inside" promo  - don't know the deal end date - booked direct

 

 I'm booked for  the 10/17/21 cruise and there are at least 40 other solo travelers booked as well.

RCL's Harmony of the Seas, 12 day TA (repositioning) from Port Canaveral, Fla to Barcelona, Spain w/ 1 port call only at Malaga, Spain, April 4-16, 2021.

 

Price for 1 for an inside balcony (Oasis class ship, so she has inside balconies):  $1,733 (includes taxes/port charges & tips). Works out to about $144/day. Price for 1 for an outside balcony: $1,800 (includes taxes/port charges & tips). Works out to about $150/day.

 

With this Covid situation going on, not sure if this cruise will end up being cancelled. I won't "pull the trigger" on this cruise with current Covid restrictions (masks, social distancing, etc) but would if there was a vaccine.

 

I hope the latest news that there will be a vaccine available to everybody by April 2021 turns out to be true, so we can all get back to solo cruising again!

That’s a good price, however it appears to be 200%, so it’s not a “deal” as far as solo occupancy is concerned. 
 

I arrived at basically the same rate when I priced first as a party of two, then next as a solo.

I'm glad to see that you priced this cruise as a solo also and arrived at the same rate. I did a mock booking on RCL's website.

 

Isn't a "good price" a "deal"? Plus, the name of this topic is: Post cruise line single supplements/solo bargains here". I would definitely consider this a "solo bargain" (or "deal"). Yes, it looks like this cruise has the full solo supplement (200%) but the price also includes taxes, port charges & tips.

 

Sometimes the overall out of pocket price of a cruise will be lower than a cruise with reduced solo supplement, as is the case here. A solo deal in my book.

I rarely get any “deals” because I’m a teacher and only travel in high season and holidays— I also don’t care about the percent supplement. If it’s a good price, it’s a good price.

Agree with you both: a deal is a deal is a deal.  And if you can get one on a solo, that makes it even better!  Nothing I like better than a bargain because it allows me to cruise more often.

The last few years, I've left my room key card in a slot machine while playing (pennies) in the casino and have been getting some incredible offers from Players Club and Casinos at Sea, etc.  They used to only offer insides free, with available upgrades to ocean views and balconies, but this past year, it's been common to get a free ocean view.  And, denatravels, many of the offers are when you might be able to go.

We’re in complete agreement.

 

My intent was to let others reading know that the rate is 200% for solo occupancy. As opposed to less than 200% and folks wondering if they needed to book through any certain agency or travel consortium as is sometimes the case. 

 

Absolutely no offense intended. 

 

Let’s just hope the cruise sails as scheduled!

Can't imagine anyone took offense, BEAV, but your clarification makes sense!

And, yes - please, let us start cruising again soon 🚢
