Paul, why don't the cruise lines price the cabins on a per cabin basis, double occupency? This would bring in more singles who don't want to pay a 200% sup. If the cabin price was X (plus more for 3rd & 4th Passengers) singles would see what a good deal (as compaired with total land pricing) a cruise vacation is. This is really a missed oppertunity for the cruise industry. The overal cost (revenue of cabin sales) of the cabin would be the same, just the marketing would be different.
