Holland America Line also has some of the lowest single supplements on some cruises for solos. Most singles/solos on HAL are women - met many a grande dame with hundreds of days at sea and the line has a very loyal core following. Upscale it is, but the critical difference is in the quality of the crew. HAL runs a fleet of ships, not a chain of floating hotels. Check the story of Prinsendam I or the rescues off the coast of Turkey. 8)

Excuse me. Just happened to be in the neighborhood.
HAL is Holland America Line, an upscale affiliate of Carnival.
