With all the people cruising these days, and the number of single people increasing, one would think the cruise lines could put aside a few hundred square feet for about 10 single cabins on each new ship.
The industry is constantly building bigger, glitzier, more varied ships - why not make the atrium a few hundred square feet smaller - who would notice?
If they are interested in increasing sales, I think introducing single people to cruising could lead to them maybe returning the next time with a larger group. Not everyone can affort the single supplement that is currently in effect.
I've cruised solo about 15 times, with friends more than 10 times - sometimes (not always) I've enjoyed the single cruises the best.

Re: single cabins
I agree belgique! I could get by with a full-sized twin bed (not the smaller ones they push together to make a queen) and a regular sized bathroom and storage. 8 - 10 cabins per ship cannot be that much of a loss monetary wise to the cruise line.....and from what I have read on many different boards, I drop more on a cruise in onboard money than many couples do..........

Thats a good idea. Instead of charging single people double they should make cabins that take half the space of a normal cabin. Just a regular size twin bed, a bathroom with a shower (no tub) and some storage. It my guess they would sell quickly
