Sounds awesome right? Well here are two different approaches on how you can enjoy a vacation like this!
If you are adventuresome and comfortable traveling solo, Norwegian Cruise Line does a fantastic job of providing networking exclusive to solo travelers. You can build your own itinerary and be as social and active as you choose. With their freestyle dining program you can dine at leisure in various restaurants throughout the ship; and with the studio lounge exclusive to solo travelers only, you are sure to meet up with other solo travelers.
Norwegian Cruise Line has several ships with studio cabins including the Epic which has 128 studio cabins and the Escape with 82 cabins. When booking directly with NCL you always want to consider what’s important to you before you book! If you are looking for a rock bottom price you can book directly on NCL’s website or on various other cruise sites BUT everything on-board, like dining at specialty restaurants, beverage packages, and shore excursions will be an additional cost. They do run specials on cruises that include your choice of unlimited open bar, 3 day + specialty dining packages, pre-paid service charges, and complimentary Wi-Fi to name a few. If booking a la carte, the 4 meal specialty dining package will cost you an additional $84, the ultimate beverage package $74 per day, and shore excursions vary depending on what you book but can cost between $100 to $300+. You can customize your vacation without having to pay surcharges or single supplements and shop around for the package that offers just what you are looking for!
If you are more interested in traveling with like-minded single individuals where the only decision you need to make is to show up then SingleWorks Travel is the way for you to go! Your own room, tons of activities aboard the ship, group dining at a different restaurant each night, unlimited beverages, PLUS shore excursions are all included so there’s no hidden costs to plan for!
Let me paint a picture for you . . . .
Upon arrival at the ship you are greeted by your SingleWorks Travel CFO (Chief Fun Officer) who provides you with the itinerary of the day and details on where to meet the other SW passengers for the bon voyage! After you are settled in to your home away from home, join your SingleWorks (SW) travel companions for a Mix and Mingle Welcome Reception followed by group dinner, a show, and definitely a visit to a few of the nightlife options!
During your days at sea you definitely will not have to worry about how to keep yourself busy! Your days can be as active and social or quiet and relaxing as you want them to be! Are you an early riser? No problem! The studio lounge is the perfect area to relax in the morning with your other SW travelers enjoying the complimentary cappuccino and coffee bar. SW will have group breakfasts, lunches, and dinners organized for those interested in joining. There will be a robust schedule of activities for all activity levels with some open to all cruise guests, while others are exclusive only to SW travelers.
No worries about getting off the ship in port by yourself or trying to decide which shore excursions you want to sign up for. Each port of call has a MeetUp group that is escorted by your CFO for those interested in sight-seeing with company, and at least one of the ports of call includes a “must do” shore excursion exclusive to SW travelers.
Every night brings great company, unique dining experiences, and free flowing beverages! NCL brings an even higher standard of excellence to their dining with upgraded menus and new exciting venues. Whether you’re indulging in succulent meats at Moderno Churrascaria, savoring French cuisine in Le Bistro, or enjoying fresh Mexican flavors at Los Lobos, you’ll be sure to discover menus as fresh as the ingredients and cuisine that looks almost too good to eat. Wine and spirits will be flowing as all our SingleWorks Travel NCL cruises include the ultimate beverage package.
Regardless if you prefer to travel solo or with SingleWorks Travel, NCL is definitely the best option at sea for single individuals looking to take a trip that brings together all the key elements to ensure an amazing vacation!
