Singles Cruise Calendar - 2007

CruiseMates Singles Editor

Organized singles cruises continue to grow in popularity, and every year I am amazed at the different choices agencies offer in order to be competitive. In the past, it seemed that Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and Costa were the only ships attracting singles cruises, but that is no longer true as agencies strive to offer more and better in their endless competition to lure singles. For instance, All Singles Travel has a private yacht sailing in the British Virgin Islands, and a first-time adventure on a polar and oceanographic research vessel, the Akademik Shokalskiy, sailing from Buenos Aires. The Queen Mary 2 is attracting hosted singles sailings with Singles Travel International scheduling six, including a trans-Atlantic crossing.

In addition, there are numerous opportunities for singles to sail in Europe this year.

Theme cruises for solo travelers are also being featured. Travel Time for Singles will win the hearts of animal lovers with their first annual �Must Love Paws� Singles Cruise to the Bahamas, with $75 of the fare going to benefit the Homeless Pets Foundation.

Often I am asked whether there are hosted cruises for �more mature� singles, and I am pleased to report that several agencies have realized the need. Amazing Journeys features several sailings for 30�s to 50�s Jewish singles, Singles Cruise has scheduled a first-time special land/cruise adventure for Senior Singles in Europe, and Vacations To Go is offering several sailings geared for �40s +.�

All agencies offer cabin mate matching to avoid paying a single supplement. The pairing is done according to gender, age (when possible) and smoking preferences; however, All Christian Cruises is unique in trying to match by asking a series of questions upon registration as to hobbies, interests, occupations, whether an early or late riser, and also invites cruisers to divulge any other information that might help find the most compatible cabin mate. In addition, they offer contact information for roomies to get to know each other prior to sailing, while most agencies do not.

Remember to book as early as possible for the ever-popular holiday cruises�Mardi Gras, Valentine�s Day, 4th of July, Labor and Memorial Day, Halloween (perhaps THE most popular cruise for singles,) Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year�s, as they sell out quickly.
