Default Price for single in cabin

How much do cruise ships charge a single booking a cabin over two to a cabin?
Would enjoy taking a cruise alone and was wondering...I know it depends on the length of the cruise but if anyone has travel alone in a cabin give me an idea.
Thanks,

It can vary from line to line, from ship to ship, and from cruise to cruise. Most of the time a single passenger will pay from 150% to a full 200% of the regular fare.

There are options, such as guaranteed share programs that match you with a cabinmate of the same sex. There are also occasional specials offered.

Absolutely the best way to get good information is to find a good local Travel Agent who is a CLIA Accredited Cruise Counselor (look for the agent's diploma on the wall, not just an agency sticker). Ask your friends and co-workers for a recommendation. The service is entirely free to you. ACC's are trained to find the very best cruise for you, after learning your personal situation and preferences, and work hard to get you the very best rate.

Have a GREAT cruise!

My husband and I booked a weeks cruise on RCCL...we also paid for a cabin for my brother and two other family members. It was a super price for them all. But when it turned out that only my brother was able to go the price didn't seem like such a bargain after all...the ticket price now appeared to be triple the cost per person than what we were expecting to pay originally. It wasn't that RCCL up the price of the cabin (they didn't)...it was just that that the price of the cabin now was for ONE person rather than the cost being split between two or three. There was no price accommodation for a cabin with only one person in it. That made it seem sooooo much more expensive. (it was still a great cabin and my brother had a wonderful cruise!)

Best bet is to get a good cabin price right off the bat...if you have someone to split the cost with...great...if not...you still got a good price and you can relax and enjoy your cruise!
