I have never been on a cruise but, being single, can see where this type of theme cruise could be fun. Can anyone recommend where on the net to go to obtain more info and pricing? Is it best to book on-line or through a travel agent? Lastly, will the pricing vary between travel agencies??
I booked Halloween singles cruise 10/25-11/1 via Carnival Triumph through
singlecruises.com. But I'm sure you can book through any number of TA.
The rate through singlecruises.com was very reasonable and they will help
find a cabin mate if you so desire.
I am looking forward to this cruise, with as many singles as I understand
are booked, the cruise should be a blast.
Although you can, of course, book your cruise through any travel agency--and might get a slighter cheaper rate--please remember that in order to attend the singles parties sponsored by SinglesCruise.com you have to book through them. There is a lot of confusion about this, and people become angry when they are turned away at the door. Read my article "Even Singles Cruises Have Rules" posted in the singles section of Cruisemates.com.
Hope to see you onboard regardless of whom you book with! It will be a great cruise for sure.
Hi. I havent booked yet, and have never been on a cruise either, so I am maybe the last one you should ask regarding what to expect. Best I can say is you'll be on a boat with a bunch of people and it should be fun. Do you have any idea about the age group the majority of those going will be in????
There are many travel agencies online who book cruises, but if you're looking for a cruise specifically geared towards singles, be sure to book with a singles cruise agency. These agencies organize private group activities that are exclusive to their group (in other words, not open to others onboard). Activities include 3 private singles cocktail parties, singles Halloween costume contests, singles games, dances, dating activities, etc. etc. Singles have a separate area of the dining room and private shore excursions for their group (no families/kids). SinglesCruise.com has almost 400 singles signed up for the Halloween cruise, so you may want to check out their website (www.SinglesCruise.com or 800-393-5000). There is a Yahoo chat site where all the singles are already chatting, but everything is exclusive to their singles. This cruise is a much difference experience than simply cruising on any regular cruise (like dating on the water). Be sure to do your homework because not all singles cruise agencies offer the same thing. Some charge membership fees and some will have only 10-15 in their groups.
Hey David! It was good to hear from you. This will be my first cruise also! I am excited and haven't a clue which of the excursions I will be doing...How about you? I will be going with two lady friends...How about you? I asked when I called about the median age group and was told it is very mixed and right now hard to say because they are still booking! I am 45 how about you? Hope to hear form you and catch up with you for a drink or two!! later Jo-Ann
