Going on holiday alone is a regularly occurrence for many people. What with no family members to stress about and no one to please but yourself, it’s certainly appealing. Solo cruising is becoming more popular than ever before with it proving to be a much safer and more luxurious way of travelling alone, you can visit many places in one trip rather than just stay in one location or travel using hostels. Here are some of the main advantages of cruising for solo travellers:
See the world in style
Many people enjoy traveling alone but for some people such as lone women, the thought of going traveling solo can be quite daunting. By going cruising alone on a Bolsover Cruise Club ship, you can be sure that your accommodation is safe, of a high standard and that you won’t find yourself alone anywhere that you won’t feel comfortable. As cruises call at so many different places it’s a great way to see many different parts of the world in one holiday.
Making new friends
With many cruises having an open seating situation for dinner, whilst dining is the perfect time to meet people. Although, you might be looking forward to spending time by yourself on holiday, making conversation over dinner can be really fun and with cruises being so diverse you never know who you’re going to meet. Tables tend to have around 8-12 seats so you have a really good chance of bonding with people at your table and won’t feel alone.
When on shore excursions you’re never alone as there will be a large group of people so you’re bound to make friends, so there will always be somebody to take photographs of you at all the famous locations. There are solo cruise meet and greet sessions held on most cruises these days too so if your intention is to buddy up with someone there’s plenty of opportunity to go on an excursion together to see whether you get along.
Whether it’s finding a sun lounger on the deck or grabbing the last seat for some evening entertainment, one things for sure, travelling solo means you have the edge on fellow cruisers. With most people travelling in groups or as couples, there’s always one spare sun lounger laying around and you’ll be sure to find the best seats in the house at all the entertainment. Getting the last place on trips and excursions also comes in handy.
