Solo Cruisers: Meet Online & Onboard

Welcome to CruiseMates' Solo Cruisers area.

In our experience singles have the best time when cruising with other singles. You dine together, drink, dance and plan special activities throughout the voyage -- aboard ship and in port. Best of all, you can connect with whom you like, bypass those you don't, and go on your own when you feel like it.

However, we also recognize that many solo cruisers prefer to sail alone, even though that generally requires paying a "singles supplement" that in most cases is the same price as paying the full fare for the empty bed in your stateroom. They are exceptions, however, including cruise line that specialize in appealing to solo cruisers with lower fares.

But if you prefer to find a roommate to help you pay the cost of your cruise, there are a lot of ways CruiseMates can enhance your singles cruising experience. Try our two singles message boards; one for general discussion and the other to find a cruise roommate.

Note: CruiseMates is in no way responsible for any interactions between people using our forums, not within our forums and especially not outside of our forums. It is the individual's responsibility to always use due diligence when dealing with people.
