Cruising for singles

Cruises offered are not specifically singles cruises but rather cruises that singles can join!

Choosing the right cruise holiday can be a difficult process at the best of times; for people on their own it can feel like there are more issues to negotiate.

And whilst booking through single traveller specialist is one option, why restrict your choices.

Yet it can be difficult, in a holiday resort filled with couples and families, to meet like-minded people interested in making friends. Anyone who has travelled alone knows how challenging sometimes it can be to get a good table in a restaurant or have a relaxed drink at the bar without feeling self-conscious. Then there is the expense to factor in, taking a taxi to the more remote sites can make you think twice if there is no one to share the fare with.

For women, the prospect of solo travel can be daunting; worries over personal security in the anonymous surroundings of a large holiday resort can make it hard for them to relax and strike up new friendships.

Conversely, men travelling alone can also feel constrained to keep to themselves; for fear that friendly overtures may be misinterpreted.

Yet there is a way to overcome the hurdles which many single travellers of both sexes may experience. Giving you the opportunity to travel to an array of worldwide destinations, whilst relaxing in a secure environment and enjoying as much or as little social activity as you want. Simply book a cruise for singles.

Singles cruises are an excellent choice for people travelling alone.  Where else do you get to take your hotel and its facilities where ever you go? Perhaps enjoy a fine dining meal, then take in a show, followed by a night cap in a piano bar or if you choose to then dancing the night away with a warm walk along the ships corridors at the end of the night. And because cruise ships are to an extent an enclosed society, it can offer a sense of community and friendliness often hard to find at some land resorts.

With plenty of activities to participate in, from pool parties, beauty demonstrations and fashion parades to lectures, arts and crafts classes, cookery lessons and keep-fit sessions. You can choose to discover a new hobby, learn a new skill if you want too, or simply sit back relax and watch the world go by with newly made friends.
