Cruises for Singles in 2015
For those of you who are single and are looking to head off on a cruise for a while, luckily for you there are plenty of great options to choose from. In the past, going on a cruise as a single was extremely expensive as most of the rooms catered for 2 people and a lone traveller would be charged the full price. Thankfully though, more and more cruise lines now have a reduced single supplement which helps cut the cost for those who travel alone.

Silver Whisper, part of Silversea Cruises, has the capacity for 382 passengers. Due to the small number of people, there is plenty of space on the ship for you to stroll around and get 1-on-1 service whenever you need it. During the daytime, the ships offers various enrichment and fitness courses, a gym and spa and much more. Gather at one of the many bars and restaurants where you can mingle with other travellers and make some friends.
Riviera from Oceania Cruises is a much larger cruise ship, holding a whopping 1,250 passengers on board when full. The ship is jam-packed full of activities for singles to have a ball at. In your free time, you can work on your creative side and spend time at the Artist Loft where an artist in residence offers free painting lessons. If cooking interests you, you can even take a cooking class for an added fee at Bon Appetit Culinary Center.
One of Crystal Cruises ships, Crystal Serenity, has a beautiful herb garden full of olive trees and fresh lavender on the Lido Deck which is great to walk through, single or otherwise. If you want to work up a sweat, check out Tour de Spin and take an indoor spinning course followed by relaxing in the Feng Shui inspired spa. There are also golf lessons, computer courses, a library and cultural lectures that are all at your disposal should you feel the urge on your trip.
Celebrity Reflection, part of Celebrity Cruises, is the ship to be on if you are looking to be entertained. There is always something going on in the evening time whether that be comedy acts, an Acapella show, DJs and house bands jamming in the bars or shows taking place in the Theatre. Daytime activities though are harder to come by and you might just have to content yourself by relaxing by the pool and drinking cocktails.
