Default Looking 4 suggestions on cruising alone

Hi. I have never been on a cruise, but want to try my first in the next month or so. Problem is, none of my friends are interested in going. Does anyone know a good cruise line for going alone? Or a website where maybe I can meet someone who wants to go on a cruise too? I'd prefer to go with someone, and was hoping there was a way to meet other singles interested in cruising so I won't have to pay the extra fare. Thanks for any suggestions.

try Pied piper travel out of NYC - You can tarvel with the group & they will arrange a share if you do not want a single cabin.

I spent last summer cruising the Mediterranean--totally solo. I took Royal Olympia Cruises (five of 'em!) and went everywhere. Although they are almost entirely straight, you will run into a few guys from US and Europe. The ports of call are exciting. I would recommend either the Explorer or Voyager (other ships are older) and see if you can get your travel agent to work in a week stop-over in Mykonos--You would just party all week and then take the ship on its next go around. Basically, it is a small, friendly company (and the only Greek cruise line).

I'm also looking for a cruise partner. To go single is cost prohibitive. Have you found a cruising partner or still looking? I live in Ft Lauderdale area so I prefer cruises leaving from this port; miami is an alternative. I do not smoke or drink. We can explore further if you have aany interest.

I'm in Fort Lauderdale as well Larry. I agree that cruising solo is cost prohibitive. Earlier this year I booked through the roomshare program at Pied Piper Travel for teh Nov 30 Millennium cruise out of Fort Lauderdale. Looking forward to a cruise again, and hey, maybe we can do one sometime since we are practically neighbors and I don't drink or smoke either

Mike and John,

I'm in Middle River Terrace and I'm going on the 11/30 Millennium cruise. The Alibi is a nice place to meet.

If you're a social person, you will always be able to meet people traveling... I have traveled solo for years. And on a cruise ship, you will always find family. As mentioned by others, your best bet to find a gay group on a regular cruise, and the agent organizing it will probably be able to set you up with a share. Pied Piper is the biggest, but there is also outcruising.com, cruisingwithpride, etc. There's also a travel agent who specializes in finding cruises where they are offering special single rates. yourowncabin.com should point you in the right direction.

Also several cruise lines such as Costa, HAL, Cunard and all the ultra luxury lines lower the single supplement on lower categories...

Hi Guys

I have went on all 7 cruise alone. I sure wish I had a cruise buddy. I'm kind of afraid to do the share program. I've heard some horror stories about that. I understand there is a group of gay people sailing from Miami on October 18 or 19. There might be 100 or more gay people on it. I was thinking about taking that cruise on the NCL but changed my mind and am sailing Nov. 2 on the Carnival Paradise, a completely non-smoking ship. Sure would love to meet some travel buddy. To share the shore tours in port..

Jeff
