You may have heard a few things about singles-oriented vacations and group singles cruise, but I've been on about 60+ single cruises over the past 8 years and most people probably don’t really know what to expect. Many people share common misconceptions about singles cruises that stop them from venturing on board and experiencing a fun vacation.
Some of the stereotypes include:
Everyone onboard a singles cruise is searching for their soul mate.
While some people are open to the idea of making a romantic connection with another cruiser, there are plenty of others who would like to meet new friends and people to travel with or simply just don’t want to travel alone. It's just a great place to meet more single friends!
Singles cruises are just one big party at sea.
While our cruisers do like to party, the majority of travelers are professionals who want to take a break from their hectic lives and enjoy the new experiences a cruise holiday has to offer – only they don’t want to do it alone. Yes, there are parties and cocktail mixers on board, but there are also a number of fun singles events that you can participate in that don’t involve alcohol such as dance lessons, trivia's, name that tune games and ice cream socials as well as shore excursions for the group while in port.
I’ll still find singles on a regular cruise.
On a regular cruise, you might meet a few singles on the ship here and there, but you won't find a large group of singles and all of our private events enhance the vacation experience immensely.
I won’t have anything in common with the other travelers.
Most of our cruises have between 50-150 people in the group so you will meet travelers from all around the country and even around the world. The group starts off by sharing at least one common interest – a passion for travel, people and trying new experiences!
I’m too shy for such a big group of singles.
Events are led by experienced cruise hosts which helps make it easy for shy people to join and get introduced to others. While most cocktail parties attract a large number of singles, some of the more specialized activities such as the dance classes, trivias or pictionary will give you a chance to interact with a smaller group of singles.
I won’t meet anyone my age on a singles cruise.
Singles from their twenties to their sixties join singles cruises ensuring there will likely be a wide range of ages in your group. You can also choose to book an age-specific cruise such as a 20’s and 30’s cruise or one for 40's plus.
While a singles cruise is not for everyone, it is a fun vacation option for solo travelers who want to meet new friends and explore new destinations together.
