Default Singles aboard QM2?

Hi again, just wondering if there were rooms specifically for those that travel alone, or whether they all had 1 large or two twin beds.

Thanks again,
John

There are no single cabins on QM2. In all cabins the twin beds can be put together to become a double. You will be able to get your cabin steward to set it how you like.

As there are no single cabins, you need to pay double to travel alone.

Actually, there is a 25% discount for single travellers...and on the basis of that I decided to pay the extra and take my sister....solo is expensive. M

However, correct me if I'm wrong, to go solo it is still not the $5000 (or the 25% off the $5000), correct?

What Merrie was trying to say is - if a cabin costs $4000 per person, double occupancy, then the price for a single would be $7000. $4000 + (75% of $4000 =) $3000.
So a single pays 175% of the "per person " fare.
Still outrageous when lines like Silversea start at 110%, HAL 150%, RSSC 110-150%,
But almost all charge 200% for their premium cabins.
Your only hope is to sign up for a share program like HAL has, and hope that they don't match you, in which case you get the cabin to yourself at the cheap rate.

The best line for singles is P&O (I know this is a bad word to some Cunarders!). Often they wave the single suppliment or charge you as little as 50, depends on what deals you can get.

(Peninsular and Oriental line)

Another part of the Carnival group, they are getting the ship that was to become Cunard's Queen Victoria.

They are aimed at the UK market and I find that only the British have heard of them!
They have four ships and offer high quality cruising each aimed at different markets.

Their website is :
