Re: best deal for a single who doesn't want to share a cabin
Check HAL closely - sometimes you can single at about 150%. That said, dragging your kiddo on a cruise is another alternative - they can be useful for hauling heavy luggage, disposing of surplus dollars and pocket change, and putting suntan lotion on your back. Heck, in the pre911 days I used to toss mine on the bridge to help steer the ship.

I'm open to any cruise line and need to find the cheapest deal as I'm a single mom.
Also what is the best place to find the best deal. I'm going to try and do this one without a TA. I'm hoping to do a 7-day eastern caribbean cruise.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
By the way, my son and I are very excited about the move from our apartment to a townhouse rental, even if we will be losing 10 sq ft. and having to pay $200 a month more in rent.
