When and with whom should I book my solo cruise?

Updated: Aug 26, 2023


If you're considering going on a solo cruise, several cruise lines cater to solo travelers. According to a post on thepointsguy.com, some of the best cruise lines for solo travelers are Norwegian Cruise Line, Celebrity Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Holland America Line, Royal Caribbean International, and Cunard Cruise Line. Norwegian Cruise Line is renowned for its singles' cruises, providing studio cabins and a lounge area for solo travelers. Additionally, Celebrity Cruises offers single staterooms on their Celebrity Edge and Celebrity Apex ships.

I've taken both inside and outside-view cabins on Carnival and Royal Caribbean, and I found the crew to be hospitable and my fellow travelers to be enjoyable companions.


Some top choices for those who prefer river cruises are AmaWaterways, Avalon Waterways, Riviera Travel, Tauck, and Scenic. I plan to take a river cruise in the United States soon, and several cruise lines offer single accommodations, including American Cruise Lines, American Steamboat Company, and Victory Cruise Lines.

River cruises are ideal for connecting with like-minded people and discovering new regions across the United States and worldwide. These cruises provide ample opportunities for social interaction and exploration.


I found some helpful information on travelandleisure.com regarding booking a cruise. Wave Season, which customarily happens between January and March, is the best time of the year to book a cruise. Prices may be significantly lower with some cruise lines, and you may be able to secure promotions such as free upgrades, prepaid gratuities, onboard spending, and even flight promotions. Also, booking between November and December during Black Friday and Cyber Monday is another good time to book your cruise. These sales often begin well before Thanksgiving and end a few days later.
