Default single shares/single supplement

(I also posted this in the singles section)

I'm contemplating a solo cruise and looking at the costs, I've heard about the "single shares" program that some ships run (where they pair you with a roommate). I thought it was the same cost a double occupancy room but a travel agent sent me some prices and it seemed more expensive. Is it more? Has anyone done this? How was there experience? I'm not liking this travel agent and everyone here gives such great advice I thought I'd ask.

Why do the cruise lines charge so much for the single supplement. Most places I've traveled alone before (even Club Med) it's only 20-30%.

It must depend on who you go through and what kind of deal they have arranged with the cruise line. I booked my cruise on Carnival through AOL Travel (you don't have to subscribe to AOL) and the single supplement was only $90 more than the double rate. Actually, I'm looking forward to having a room to myself for that price.

Hi ...

I've only once known of a pair of people who travelled together sight unseen. They were the most unlikely looking and acting ladies you could imagine. But they set their boundaries and got along just fine.

You might want to do a google.com search on singles cruises. Amazing the stuff you can find there.
