A singles cruise is a very economical choice for a vacation getaway because it provides you with an all-inclusive vacation. Your accommodations, meals, entertainment, amenities and singles cruise program are included in the basic per-person price, making it so much easier to stick to your vacation budget.
Before selecting your singles cruise itinerary, it may be more cost effective to look for an upcoming cruise that is departing out of a port near your hometown. If you can drive to the port of embarkation, you can save on air travel, hotel costs, and transfers to and from the cruise terminal.
Another way to save money before you set sail is to plan to share a cruise cabin with another solo traveler in the group. SinglesCruise.com provides a complimentary roommate matching service for all of their guests. This can help you take advantage of the lower double occupancy cabin price. Sharing a cabin with another cruiser also allows you to meet someone new right away at the start of your vacation who is in the same boat as you.
Once onboard, you can participate in as many of the organized singles activities included in your cruise price as you like. During your days at sea, you will meet your single counterparts at complimentary cocktail mixers, dance lessons, board game sessions, speed meeting, ice cream socials, wine and chocolate get-togethers and more. After the sun goes down, you can dress the part for several fun theme nights while you enjoy open table dinner seating within the singles group.
There are plenty of other free recreational activities and events to participate in on the ship to keep you entertained all day and night. In your free time, you can spend time together with your new unattached friends sunning at the pool, playing games on the sports deck, meeting up for a work-out, or taking in a show at the ship's theater. To keep your budget in line, be sure to watch spending on extras such as alcohol, spa treatments, specialty dinner clubs, and souvenirs which can hike up the cost of your cruise vacation.
Once you reach your ship's ports of call, there are often a number of affordable ways to see the sights. Many cruise travelers opt to explore as much of their destination as they can by foot to take in the city's unique flavor and offerings. For warm-weather itineraries, many cruisers simply ask the locals where the best beach is and take an inexpensive bus or cab ride there. Depending on the port, you can often take the same low-cost transportation to a number of nearby attractions.
A singles cruise is a rewarding and affordable vacation where you can enjoy shipboard life and the company of new people while staying within your budget.
