After dozens of attempts and dangerously high data usage we realize there will be absolutely no connecting by proximity to other singles on this ship – these apps simply do not work off stateside. We’ll get rich by developing an app for Cruise Singles Dating that works onboard.
But alas, this is not going to help us for the next 7 days!
Events and activities often include games, speed dating events, social gatherings, dance lessons, parties and guided on-shore tours.
Some singles cruises also offer pre-cruise events, where singles can get to know each other before the actual cruise itself. Each singles cruise company will differ in their policies and what is covered within their fee.
How else are we going to bubble sort through the 4,000 on this ship and decide whom to meet? Once on the ship and settled into a place at the first bar we spot, we stop to look around for the first time. They must be on another special section of the boat waiting for us!
All at once, sets in as we begin to absorb our surroundings: all the families, strollers, grandparents, couples….wait! I know, I know…let’s login to our dating apps and see who’s on the boat!
Will I Have To Pay a Singles Supplement on a Singles Cruise?
A singles supplement is essentially an added fee that cruise ships charge clients who want to have a room to themselves.
You will also pay more, as you would on any cruise, if you reserve a stateroom for a solo traveler, like those onboard the Norwegian Epic, or choose to occupy a double occupancy stateroom alone.
We set sail from NYC to Bermuda for 7-Days on the glorious blue seas with all of the anticipation of two traveling singles, looking forward to a captive prospect pool of 4,000 people! Exciting, glamorous…we even upgraded to a suite with a balcony…all the possibilities in the world!
We weren’t planning on any additional upgrades but two were no brainers: Ultimate Beverage option (unlimited drinks for per day) – CHECK! And we can’t wait to see how all the Social Media and Internet Dating sites work on a cruise!
To avoid paying a single supplement, consider asking a friend to go on the cruise with you or look for cruises that offer roommate matching.
Here are a few advantages of singles cruises for seniors: If you love to travel and meet new people, but dislike researching and organizing itineraries, a senior singles cruise might be a great option for you.
