I have two questions for anyone out there who has cruised alone. If you book a cabin by yourself and pay the dreaded "single supplement" do you also have to pay $10 a day times 2 so the cabin steward doesn't hate you?
I would also like to know if you book alone, if you can still choose your cabin or do they stick you anywhere they want? I am very much affected by motion and like to stay low and center as much as possible. That's one reason I would never accept an upgrade if offered on other cruises. Afraid I'd get up front or back. Thanks for any help.
I cruise single all the time and I've just had to pay the $10.00 tip for one. The same applies to port charges. And I have always been able to select from available cabins. Hope this helps. Have a great day.
Thanks so much for the information. I am really trying to get up the courage to go alone, as I love to cruise and have lost my travel partners. Grandkids are grown and have their lives to live. Daughter and I did the last 4, but one in October kind of turned her off to cruising right now. I didn't like that one either but it just made me look forward to planning a new one. Guess I'm addicted! It's great to hear about other's experiences.
Don't let cruising alone keep you home -I've done a cruise alone - next one coming up in June to Alaska. However, this time I am doing it through singlescruises.com. You pay one port charge and tip charge. I always ask when putting the down payment down that if closer to the cruise I do get a cabinmate can they be added on and always am told that they can - they just need to add the port charges and tipping. I actually did this one time as my daughter decided to go a month before the cruise - no problem.
