Single Occupancy Balcony Cabins.

7 posts in this topic

I have been cruising for many years and several times a year. Why is it the only single cabins are inside ones? Or am I missing something? Does anyone know if any decent cruise ships have balcony cabins without me paying almost twice the price?

The problem with single cabins is they are 'compact and bijou' where you couldn't swing the proverbial cat. I've had a single cabin once and never again. (I always used to travel in a standard balcony cabin as a couple and after the one single cabin experience I shall only have a double balcony cabin as a solo traveller.)

 

The single supplement is certainly hefty. My experience is 100% supplement on Cunard and P&O - and - you could only get the Vantage prices - doubled of course. However, I believe that both Cunard and P&O are now going to allow solo travellers to get the Getaway prices - again, doubled of course.

 

cheers

Harvey

I can confirm this Harvey.

 

I recently booked a 'solo' trans Atlantic on board Queen Mary 2 for next month. I opted for the  'getaway' rate and the single supplement was a very acceptable 50%.

 

Now for that I get my own double-sized stateroom plus flight and transfers included.

 

No grumbles from me and think of all those lucky ladies who won't have to rely on a 'gentleman host' for a dance. ;)  ;)

Thanks for that Richard. 50% solo supplement on Getaway fares is a great improvement. Very good value.

PS    I've heard that you are a bit of a twinkle toes. The ladies are surely in for a treat B)
