Singles Cruise Calendar - 2006 and 2007

CruiseMates Singles Editor

Singles Cruising has really changed in the seven years I have been Cruisemates' Singles Editor.
It used to be that organized singles cruises were a small group of mostly thirtyish party-hearty types looking for romance or trying to see who could drink the most beer at Carlos and Charlie's without having to be taken back to the ship by wheelchair. They were mostly known as "Boozin'' Cruises" with the motto "What happens onboard stays onboard."

But no more.

The emphasis now is not on romance and parties alone, but also on "solo" people opting for group travel rather than going alone. They make new friends, have the opportunity for foreign travel as well as the Caribbean, and finding the love of their life is not primary to their agenda. If it happens, great. If not, they still have a wonderful cruise they will always remember.

Used to be I could go alone on a cruise and find other singles to mingle with, but it is difficult to do so now with cruise lines offering sizeable discounts to families and business groups. And with cruise lines charging a hefty single supplement for those occupying a cabin to themselves, it becomes financially challenging to travel by one's self.

This year's 2006-2007 Singles Calendar is the largest yet, just updated with even more cruises added to their schedules. Be sure to visit Cruisemates Singles Message Board often for other interesting news and tidbits throughout the year, and remember that I am always happy to try to answer any questions or help in any way possible to make your singles cruise a cruise to remember.
