If there is one thing which all single travellers want when booking a luxury cruise, it’s good value for money.

There is nothing more disheartening than to find a great cruise, only to discover that the single supplement is the price of a second passenger. In other words, that single travellers are asked to pay 200% of the price of someone travelling with a companion.

But fear not, it is entirely possible to get a good deal as a solo traveller. More and more people are choosing to travel alone, and the cruise lines recognise this and are beginning to offer a wider choice of good deals for singles to entice them into cruising with their particular cruise line.

How to get a good price single passenger fare on a luxury cruise

Quite often, the best time to book is four- to five-months ahead of the sailing. At this point, many luxury cruise lines will introduce single traveller offers on a selection of cruises, with single supplements as low as 10-20%. It does sometimes happen that single supplements are waived altogether on selected sailings, and these promotions are certainly worth looking out for.

The best way to find reduced single supplement deals is to call your Six Star Cruises Concierge. You can reach our team on 0808 202 6105, who will be aware of all the latest cruise offers and can help you to find the best deals for single travellers with a cruise line that suits you.

What if I want a wider choice?

The reality of the situation is that the reason why selected sailings have no single supplement is that these are the ones that the cruise lines are struggling to fill otherwise. After all, having one person in a double stateroom can often generate only half the revenue for the cruise line.

But, if you fancy something a bit different, such as an unusual destination, certain ship or specific suite or dates, you will want to choose a cruise line which doesn’t overcharge for single travellers on the full range of sailings.

Luxury lines such as Seabourn usually offer one or two staterooms with a reduced single supplement on every sailing, so it’s worth giving your Six Star Cruises Concierge a call, and asking if any reduced-supplement staterooms are still available on the cruise that you have in mind. Booking as far in advance as you can gives you the best chance of securing one of these options.
