Default Never Minde - Found One! Single Cruise Rate

It did cost a bundle...but booked one this weekend! Alaska June 1, 08.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

Is Going Solo Affordable?

I've been on 10 cruises over the years, but looking at trying a solo cruise if I can afford it. Which cruise lines (if any) offer single rates that aren't 200% (cost for two)? I called Carnival (least favorite choice) and so far, they're the only line that offers "one or two rooms at 150% single rate".

Sharing a room w/a stranger is out of the question. I want to cruise eastern or western carribean or alaska for 5 - 7 days leaving sometime the first week in June.

I appreciate knowing what's out there for the single traveler, from those who've done it already.

Thanks!

Another cruise line that offers less than 200% solo fares is Holland America, also Princess. A lot depends on where you're sailing, time of year, and cabin category.

You have 3 lines - now go over to a discounter (smartcruiser, etc.) and see what the (unpublished) best rate is for your proposed solo trip.
