I don’t think any of them offer deals for solo travellers on a regular basis. It’s more a case of checking their web sites to see what is on offer or contacting a company that specialises in solo travel like ‘Solos’.


Are there any cruise lines which are offering more favourable no-fly deals for single travellers to the Mediterrean in May or June 2017?

Passion for Cruises also do some very good Solo Deals, @LABath. And MSC and Costa do Repositioning cruises in Spring and Autumn with no or low single supplements.

Just read all the info shared and am now seriously thinking of a cruise – depending on the price as unfortuntely pension only goes so far. It’s looking hopeful though…..

I cruised with ‘Fred’ this year as a solo and can confirm they do an excellent job of looking after solo travellers.


To make cruising with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines even more attractive to solo guests, the cruise line has introduced some great-value ‘twin-for-sole occupancy’ discounts for 2016. These special deals mean that a solo guest, occupying a twin cabin, will pay either no single-supplement or receive up to 50% off the supplement cost, depending on the selected cruise.

Once on board a Fred. Olsen ship, solo travellers will find exclusive gatherings for them to get to know each other, and staff on board will seat them together for dinner, and arrange companions for solo travellers when going ashore if required. There are also Gentleman Hosts and Dance Couples on board the ships to provide dancing partners for solo guests.

For those solo cruisers who prefer to occupy a single cabin, Fred. Olsen has a number of cabin options available on each of its four ships, covering all grades, from ‘Single Inside’ and ‘Single Outside’ cabins, to ‘Single Balcony Suites’. Overall, the Fred. Olsen fleet has 190 single cabins; Braemar offers 40 such cabins, Black Watch and Boudicca each have 43, and Balmoral has 64.
