pool your resources and charter a ship and then watch to see how hard it will be to fill it..what people say they want (i.e. no kids, no smoking etc) and what they will actually pay for can be two different things

the bigger question might be, would you be willing to pay a premium to cruise on a ship that fits your criteria...

there are several instances where it does happen, but for the most part they are chartered and it cost more

by "singles only" do you mean one person per cabin? If so that will not happen, or are you talking about 4 to a cabin sharing on a ship that is full of single folks only?
A few cruise lines do do Adult's Only sailings- its usually only once maybe twice per year - obviously the market isn't out there to make it profitable enough to do on a regular basis.

Windjammer has single adults only cruises. You won't be one to a room but there will only be singles aboard.

I would suggest going on an organized singles cruise.... You will have around 150 other singles (300 if you book a Halloween Cruise). You also have activities that are available to your group only.

I'm there!!!!! I'm all over this one!!! I'm not single but I love cruising without Mrs. Thomas. NOT that I don't like cruising with her, but when I can go without her I'm in the casino when I want, at the buffet when I want, at the show when I want, sleeping when I want..........you get the idea.

O.K. she's my love, my best friend, and my cinnamon bear, but there are times when a man doesn't want to compromise......ya' know what I mean?????

Regards,
Thomas

I assume Showcat meant a Carnival or Celebratity type ship.

It would be good to see and go on a cruise like this but I do not see it anytime soon. Why? The majority of singles and people in whole haven't discovered the adventure of cruising on a ship. In order for this to happen the TA that specialize in single cruising will have to have a huge advertising budget, alot of repeat customers with 95% satifaction and incentive to give those customer discounts for refering their friends and family who are also single. This would be too much for one travel agency to handle unless they have a sizable staff.

Heck, I would be happy if the cruise is 25% full of singles but it will not happen anytime soon. Unless it's an event that can bring together an equal amount of men and women of various ages 4th of July and Halloween weeks are the closes I can think of that can achieve this goal.

The singles who do go on such a cruise will have an understanding about the joy of traveling on a ship than looking at it as a meet market. It is very hard to put together "themed" cruises some are even cancel months before leaving port because lack of interest. The only one I know that is sold out is Tom Joyner's "Fantastic Voyage" cruise but because of the talent they hire it's expensive ($3000 for a shared cabin).

One can only wish.

Long ago, I mean really long ago, I went on a cruise like that. Yes, it was Carnival. It was done single share style, where they fixed you up with roommates. It was awful. I was 30-ish on a ship full of mostly 21-25 year olds all looking to "score". I don't have a problem with age...I married a younger man, but that cruise was totaly meat market. Couoldn't wait to get off the ship!

Default Honeymoon Cruise

In Sept. 1994, I was on Royal Carribean/Majesty of the Seas for a honeymoon cruise. It was absolutely fabulous. They said that everyone on the cruise was on their honeymoon and couples was all I saw. In the dining room we were seated with 3 other couples at a table of 8. One couple was married for the 2nd time and were in their 60's they were from Russia and very ACTIVE. Again, no children in sight. There was a wide variety of ages groups on this ship and most of the activities were centered around the honeymoon theme. I don't recall seeing any children, but may have still been in my own little world. I thoroughly enjoyed this cruise and would definately book an Adults Only cruise.....

I agree. I gravitate to adult only areas and then have to watch them run kids out all day.
